Gourdin & Müller is dedicated to the subject of spatial 
 communication. Our focal points include guidance systems 
 and exhibition layout and design. Naturally, print and 
 corporate design are also included in our range of services. 
 Our references, awards and presence in trade publi- 
 cations are the consequence of professional planning pro- 
 cesses, from the conception of content to handover to 
 the customer.



Signage SystemsDownload Portfolio

User-friendliness and the visualisation of complex content 
 are the central aspects of functional guidance systems. 
 As expert planners, Gourdin & Müller advise municipalities, 
 companies and institutions of guidance issues. The 
 planning of orientation concepts, information structures 
 and wording form the basis for our work in this. Our con- 
 ceptual approach enables the creation of unusual so- 
 lutions, representing theme, place or client appropriately. 
 We provide holistic support for the process and under- 
 take all project phases from conception to completion.


Our planning process is based upon the following 
 focal points: 
 - Introductory workshop with customer 
 - tatus analysis and evaluation, drafting of a 
   catalogue of measures 
 - Conception of orientation and definition of 
   information structures 
 - Wording 
 - Translation 
 - Design of information elements (graphics, form) 
 - Sampling (materials, sizes, light) 
 - Approval procedures 
 - Design planning 
 - Call for tenders as per VOB -
  German construction contract procedures
 - Scheduling and cost management 
 - Production support and construction management 
 - Documentation 
 - Drafting of design manuals

   general contractor



Exhibition designDownload Portfolio

Gourdin & Müller perceive exhibitions as spaces in which 
 to marvel, reflect and sense. In this our objective is to 
 employ appropriate staging to draw the observer into an 
 unfamiliar world for a limited period of time, a world that 
 he can then leave with different thoughts or impressions. 
 We place particular value on intensive interaction with 
 curators and all scientific and academic project partners.

Our planning process is based upon the following 
 focal points: 
 - Conception of content with own curators 
 - Familiarisation with the subject and viewing of the 
   exhibits and materials foreseen 
 - Clarification of economic, spatial, technical, conservation 
   and design framework conditions 
 - Definition of a spatial division on the basis of 
   focal points of content 
 - Development of superordinated scenography with 
   staging ideas for the key themes and exhibits 
 - Model presentation 
 - Detailed draft of scenography 
 - Exhibition graphics 
 - Sampling (materials, sizes, light) 
 - Approval procedures 
 - Design planning 
 - Media planning 
 - Light planning 
 - Call for tenders as per VOB 
 - Scheduling and cost management 
 - Production support and construction management 
 - Documentation 
 - Implementation of manufacture and assembly 
   as general contractor 
 - Editing and proof reading 
 - Translation



Corporate design / print mediaDownload Portfolio

The search for an appropriate emotional address is the 
 foundation of our approach in the development of corporate 
 design or the design of print media. Gourdin & Müller 
 utilises an expressive interaction of typography, design, ma- 
 terials and their forms of application, which transport clear 
 messages and the identity of companies and institutions.


Our project phases: 
 - Content concept 
 - Image concept 
 - Layout 
 - Editing and proof reading 
 - Translation 
 - Composition and final artwork 
 - Scheduling and cost management 
 - Production support
