Our exhibits department provides consulting services to museums, visitor centers, and other organizations. Utilizing a team approach, meetings, and design presentations, we develop the interpretive plans and exhibitions with our clients, soliciting comments and suggestions from every member of the team. In this way we can take advantage of the diverse interests, experiences, and learning styles of various team members, and build buy-in and support for all aspects of the project.
Project management is an integral part of our process. We provide meeting facilitation, note taking, issues list, budget development/management, and task management.
We firmly believe that content drives the design of the exhibit. Once the content has been clearly defined, the design of the exhibit experience will naturally follow. Exhibit development services include content research, big idea and take-home messages, bubble diagrams, exhibit narratives, storylines, and label writing in English and Spanish.
Once the content and visitor experience has been defined, the three dimensional experience is created. We provide a full range of exhibit design services, including conceptual sketches, color and material boards, low- and high-tech interactives, CAD drawings (elevations, sections, floorplans, reflected ceiling plans), fabrication specifications, and lighting plans.
Through graphic design, we take your content and create a meaningful and accessible experience for visitors. Whether it is an interpretive label or large-format graphic, we utilize this two-dimensional format to help you tell your story. We work with you to define a unified theme—including color palette, fonts, and graphic elements—that integrates with the exhibit design.
Our team can provide research, acquisition, and licensing services of images, film, music, or other media. Our media team has production capabilities for a wide range of videos and audio clips for use on site at your institution, for the web, or for other digital initiatives. View videos.
Crates are the building blocks of every exhibition. Our team can fabricate crates large or small. Crates are designed to meet the needs of the project. They can be designed with skids to allow movement by pallet jack or fork lift, or can incorporate heavy duty wheels to allow for movement by rolling.
We provide building and gallery security evaluation, planning and/or implementation. Security evaluation provides an assessment of the security needs of a gallery or building, including staffing, physical plant and infrastructure. Security planning identifies goals and priorities for a security system so that it can adapt as an institution grows and changes. Implementation of a security plan includes staff training; specification, purchase and installation of monitoring software and hardware, such as cameras and alarms. We can also provide security devices and transmitters for individual cases that need to be alarmed.
