Whether itʼs bringing a rich imagination to life, cultivating a sense of discovery or empowering generations to explore, education is at the core of our future. Visitors go to museums and its exhibitions to learn, experience unique stories and increase understanding of lifeʼs mysteries. Through its comprehensive work on countless award-winning museums around the country, Hunt Design has brought excitement and clarity to a variety of topics in a wide range of grand architectural places and spaces, ranging from Americaʼs historic past, the science of electricity, the history and future of cars and space travel and the childlike wonder in a fairy tale. The firmʼs comprehensive design programs for museums touch every point of guest contact, from ticketing and entry to the exhibit spaces, common areas and printed maps.
Museums have undergone a tremendous amount of expansion and change over the past several years. From simply re-naming the configuration of floors and zones to complete re-branding —each was critical to its overall success. Programs created by Hunt Design are exemplified in vast new systems of directory signage, color-coding and mapping systems.
Hunt Design also employs graphics as a tool to re-invent the museumʼs many environments through its creative uses of wayfinding techniques, clutter abatement, marketing, vertical renaming and zone orientation — thus improving the overall guest experience.
