The documenta archiv gets a new image with a web presence, logo, and -custom typography developed by the Stuttgart Design Agency L2M3.

The new visual identity developed by Professor Sascha Lobe and his team encompasses not only the documenta archiv’s logo and letterhead, but also a radical new concept and design for the website Additionally the archive received a custom typeface.

The purpose of an archive is to store large quantities of image and text sources, which are primarily stacked in boxes, folders, or drawers. This was adopted as a theme in the design by layering surfaces and images as a stack, from which the consistent design for the print media and website was derived.
