We consider graphic design to be an integral part of interpretive design. Every effort is made to design graphics that are clear and that explain concepts and ideas creatively and economically. The graphic design should also relate to and enhance the interpretive message and goals of the project. This panel, from the Emily Dickinson Museum, explains the characters and the environment of Emily’s world in Amherst, MA, using a period birds-eye view map and historic images of key places and people in her life. The background texture is period wallpaper owned by the museum. We have also designed collateral materials including; fund raising brochures, concept brochures, master plans, and exhibit catalogues.
