Visual identity

Munich Quantum Valley (MQV) has a visual identity that is both memorable and easy to recognize. It includes a refined logo, a color palette and suggested fonts, to help identify the MQV “brand”. By embracing these design guidelines across all of our communication platforms, MQV presents a clear, professional image that all of our target audiences can identify. MQV members are encouraged to follow this visual identity in talks and posters with MQV-related content.
