I recently worked with White Design Studio to design an energy exhibition for the Eastern Kentucky Science Center. This program was a complicated by many factors. Our target audience was school-aged children and their teachers and parents. Our exhibition was funded by local and state energy industry. We had a very short time line with which to design the exhibition, and White Design Studio had to pick up where another firm had fallen short in their efforts to provide a cohesive solution.
White Design Studio was able to take a large, complex set of ideas and weave it together with an over arching brand and graphic language that told our stories clearly and concisely. The brand was emblematic of both the subject matter, and the sense of discovery we wanted our audience to feel. Just below the brand, White Design was able to show many of the principals our exhibition would demonstrate individually in a master narrative that governed the exhibit and gave the visitors a foundation for everything they were going to learn. Finally, individual exhibits were attractive, the lessons were clear and all of the demonstrations and aesthetics supported the main narrative.
White Design Studio was a pleasure to work with during the design process, taking input from our team of educators, administrators, industry professionals and adding their own research and perspective to make a learning tool that is informative and inspirational. In the end, both our guidance and theirs produced a solution that was far better than either of us could have produced on our own.
