The newspaper covers famous German-Americans in the history of the United States. Back in the 1800’s, many Germans came to the U.S. and took a big part in the cultural and industrial development. The museum newspaper tells their stories.
Simple, bold, geometric shapes in black and white are typical elements of German design and create a connection of German-Americans with their origins. The newspaper contains modern and traditional elements in layout and type setting. Strong compositions with striking contrast in size and color invite to discover and also highlight the major impact those people made.
