A successful exhibit design relies heavily on effective communication of information through visuals and the dramatic use of a 3D environment. As designers, we can maximize the opportunity to capture the attention of our viewers by creating a compelling exhibit by using expressive forms and visual messages that work together to convey a point of view and a distinct message. Designing at a larger scale requires an understanding of human scale, and blends the disciplines of marketing, graphics, architecture and interiors with industrial design. This project objective was to create a modular and portable traveling exhibit that would showcase and explain a socially responsible topic that affects teenagers in Rhode Island.
The team conducted research on current traveling exhibit designs to explore physical examples of best practices in designing at a larger scale. The exhibit embodied a clear message while communicating key information in a compelling 3D environment. The team combined visual images, form, text and a hierarchy of information.
