Thanks to everyone who took the time out of their busy holiday schedules to connect with us for an exhibit Happy Hour at the Rosenbach Museum. It was wonderful to see some of our devoted chapter members again as well as meet some new members at this event.
We were introduced to the Dracula and Frankenstein exhibit and for many of us it was our first time at the Rosenbach. We enjoyed a panel discussion with Mary Ann Casey from Olive Tree Design, Liz Russell from Bluecadet, Judy Guston from the Rosenbach, all moderated by our very own Sara Pasch. We learned about Casey’s strategy designing the bold brand and large-scale exhibit graphics. Judy discussed how the content strategy for this exhibit on making science accessible came to be and the overall goal of shifting the audience demographic for the Rosenbach. Liz talked with us about the development of their choose-your-own-adventure interactive that was designed to explore contemporary scientific issues through the lens of the 19th-century literary masterworks.
We are incredibly excited to have met so many students from local design programs. We had students representing design programs from Drexel, Thomas Jefferson University (PhilaU) and UArts! We hope to continue to see students come out to our events and benefit from connecting with local professionals.
We would again like to thank Bluecadet for their food and drink sponsorship for the evening. We are grateful for your support and generous contributions.
We wish you all a happy holiday season and look forward to getting together at our next event in the new year!
