kompo museum

Tom Chalancon

KOMPO MUSEUM is a fictional museum presented by Tom Chalancon, exploring the art of geometrical shapes and their compositions. For the logo, an algorithm was developed that randomly creates over 600 different combinations of abstract forms, based on the letters from the name KOMPO and creating unique variations of the generative logo. Posters, app, website, wayfinding system, tickets, print materials, and additional merchandising complete the display, creating a fully functional and ready to use brand identity.

Tom Chalancon

I am a french graphic designer based in Berlin. Growing up in France right next to the Swiss border, I moved to Berlin three years ago in order to develop my creative skills. The aim of my designs is to translate a desire for geometry and order into a visual message inspired by such movements as Bauhaus or the Swiss Style. I use a grid system to organize my work and make it as neat as possible, conveying a feeling of stability.

What is a good design for you?

For me, a good design is a design that is clear and understandable without explanations.

What was the most challenging experience during your studies?

The most challenging experience that I had during my studies was to combine the studies with a part-time job.

Who or what inspires you?

I am deeply inspired by the designs approaches from the movement of Bauhaus and the Swiss Style.

How do you approach a new project?

It depends on the nature of the project but I always make a moodboard and a benchmark.

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

The great advice that I could give is just to design what you like and convey emotions through it. Also listen to the feedback from the teachers.

Have you changed during your studies? How?

I did certainly grew up during my studies. My learnings from university were useful at work and my work experience was useful at university.

Why did you choose to study in your programme?

After doing some studies in communication in Lyon, France, I wanted to focus more on the design part.

How are you going to celebrate your graduation?

I will be celebrating my graduation on holidays with close friends.

Say hi!
