This award winning exhibition immerses the visitor in the world of CERN and the story of the Large Hadron Collider. We produced the exhibition identity and designed the graphic language that guides the visitor through each space highlighting content with a variety of interpretative devices.
Inspired by our research at CERN and conscious not to deliver information with too much of a curatorial tone we used hand drawn elements to convey information on flip charts and whiteboards as if the physicists have stepped out for a moment leaving their notes for the visitor to stumble upon. We also produced a variety of hand drawn animated content culminating in a projected installation that the Economist described as 'mesmerising'
With over 600 sq m of backdrop graphics we recreated the visual environment of CERN from the lecture theatre where the Higgs discovery was announced to the 27km LHC tunnel. We have also adapted the design for MSI and venues across its international tour, producing dual language graphics and animation for the Palais de la Découverte, Paris, and the Hong Kong Science Museum where it can be seen until May 2016.
