Interpretation strategy for the Museum of Childhood and fitout of ground floor Gallery One as a pilot project.
We were tasked with developing the interpretation strategy for the new gallery and implementing the first phase works for the fitout of the ground floor gallery. We took an audience-focused and thematic approach to the new displays. Based on the themes of Life, Learn and Play the gallery incorporate changeable elements, including interpretive panels and updatable object displays. Designed to appeal to a wide range of ages and abilities and to cater for a variety of learning styles, the displays include tactile and sensory exhibits, hands-on interactives, play opportunities, object displays, film, audio recordings, touchscreens, text panels and large scale wallpapers.
Our work included exhibition space planning, 3D exhibition design, object mounting, graphic design, interactives, illustration, digital design, print material and signage.
