Read Time: 4 minutes
In 1994, Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry opened “Take Flight,” one of their most popular exhibits featuring the fuselage of a retired Boeing 727 passenger plane. Today, more than 25 years later, Studio Matthews (exhibit designers) and Belle & Wissell (media experience designers) have redesigned the exhibit’s displays while updating the story of commercial aviation for 21st century visitors.

The Center for Wooden Boats

Finalist 2020
The Center for Wooden Boats

The Center for Wooden Boats has been a beloved gathering place on Seattle’s Lake Union since 1976. The maritime non-profit's new building, the stunning Wagner Education Center, raises their visibility and all the great work they do to nurture kids and the local boat-loving community. The new donor recognition and signage system takes its cue from the building's industrial, honest material palette. When visitors take a closer look at each steel donor panel, they discover the favorite sailing waters of each donor.

The Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) brought together multidisciplinary designers from around the world for the first comprehensive and virtual multi-day event dedicated to exhibition and experience design. This series, entitled How Soon Is Now?
