SEGD Exhibition & Experience Design Workshop

August 21-22 in Washington, D.C.

Today, exhibition design is a convergent discipline that borrows elements from retail store design, interpretive wayfinding, storytelling, media, and interaction design. The creatives who develop immersive, compelling exhibition experiences are just as diverse, hailing from the experience design world as well as web development, technology, science, typography, and brand design.

Along with developing a comprehensive environmental graphics, donor recognition, and wayfinding program for the new NPR headquarters and production studios in Washington, D.C., Poulin + Morris also designed a permanent, interactive lobby exhibition entitled This is NPR.
