I designed graphics for the Hall of Human Life exhibit, a 10,000 sq. ft. exhibit that opened in November 2013 at the Museum of Science.
As an in-house design team of five, we wanted to create a look and feel for the exhibit that was warm and inviting. Some of the content topics in the exhibit are complex and serious (including health conditions), so we took steps to avoid a look that was too sterile or medical.
With that in mind, we picked colors that are warm and natural, one color corresponding to each of the five areas of the exhibit. The typefaces were chosen for their approachability, friendliness, but also heft and bold presence.
Another design feature worth mentioning is the use of small "callout" text boxes that we overlaid on images. Each callout contains a bit of info or fun fact that corresponds to the image. If visitors don't have the time or attention to read a longer label, they can get some information from these.
This was a very fun project to work on, and a great team to work with!
