National Railway Museum, York
Working for the first time with exhibition designer and fellow northerner Robin Clark from Hara Clark we designed the TESTING exhibition. Entering a world of experimentation, prototyping and testing via stylised sheds, these environments are specifically designed to give a behind the scenes viewpoint of some of the ordinary people doing extraordinary things to drive innovation in the rail industry. Each shed, prompted with a question show how these techniques help engineers and scientists find the answers.
The graphics had a distinct uncomplicated approach-with off the shelf fixings and a bold simplified three colour palette. Commissioned photography from Mark Newton gave the spaces scale, perspective and symmetry.
