Eyes on the Arctic, 2017

I was brought on board by Meridian International to design this bilingual, multimedia exhibit showcasing the lives of Arctic Indigenous peoples and Arctic issues, including research, wildlife, and the environment. This exhibition is scheduled to tour throughout Canada. Lots of custom build was invovled in the design. Visit my build design section for more info.

I was brought on board by Meridian International to design this traveling exhibition celebrating Canada's 150th Anniversary with a focus on US-Canada relations. This exhibition is scheduled to tour throughout Canada. I designed and built these custom lightweight poplar easels with an eye towards flexibility for a variety of future venues.

As lead designer and project manager for this highly interactive, 7000 square foot exhibition, I was involved in all aspects of this project from concept to creation. It consumed me for over 2 years and I learned an incredible amount. Please contact me if you would like additional information about this project.

This design was inspired by interesting light and shadow designs I ran into perusing the internet late one night. I liked the Idea of playing with the word vision. Probably one of the more tricky and risky designs I've ever tried but the payoff was great.

This exhibition was created at NG in 2014 and is still on tour. http://wovexhibition.org

Photo of the successfully installed title! In the background you can see how translucent banners and gauze like material were used to obscure views and add a sense mystery as the visitor discovers the work of each of the eleven photographers featured in this show.

Photo of the exhibition that featured the cause-driven art of Asher Jay. Asher's incredible work earned her a spot in the 2015 class of National Geographic Emerging Explorers.

This was a fairly small and awkward space. A nice flow to the room was created by taking some of Asher's vertical oriented art and hanging them in a triangular formation centered in the room.

2015 Pristine Seas Exhibition

This exhibition is divided into five sections: Coral Reefs, The Arctic, Coastal Africa, Oceanic Islands, and Toward the Future. Each section features a title wall, informational panel, and a selection of images and captions. The limited space did not allow for a clear separation between sections so we used a defining color as a design language for navigation.

Another design choice was to alternate the thickness of the mounted material (Ultra Board E) to create an undulating movement to the ganged photographs.

2013 NG Orion Exhibition

As part of a ship wide photo installation, we took down this out dated mural surrounding the 5 level center stairwell and redesigned it to showcase the work of some of National Geographic's most talented photographers focusing on ocean preservation.

-The Orion was designed and built specifically for expedition travel. It was created to explore the far corners of the Earth in complete self-sufficiency.

These large 60"x40" images were rear mounted to a thin, non-glare plexiglass, allowing them to maintain the curvature of the wall when cleated.

This was a fun challenge using the entire entrance to create a cohesive and alluring entrance design. A large amount of vinyl was used to give a sense of the size of this incredible discovery, although not quite as big as actual size! The title letters were routed from .5" sintra and mounted with a 1" stand off to add dimension.

Designing and fabricating these viking shield were lot of fun. The vikings of the period took great pride in their shield construction and design. They served as great atmospheric design elements as well as providing framing for this standing theater.
