This project reconciles two difficult goal of signage for a children’s museum: clarity and fun. The scope of work includes base building signage, exhibit signage titles and explanations, and some printed matter. The base building signage makes cheeky reference to a major architectural feature – the “hole-y wall” to provide easy orientation. For the exhibit signage, a system of signage was developed for the exhibits that could radically morph to suit the size, texture, complexity, and individuality of the exhibits.
