Walking with Dinostars

Our Junior Designers were set the brief of designing a temporary exhibition at Hull's very own Dinosaur museum - Dinostar.

The client, Steve, wanted the new exhibit to be focussed around four of his artefacts from the BBC’s 'Walking with Beasts' series. Our designers had to research into each artefact and work through the design process to design a well rounded exhibition.

Our Junior Designers also worked with Hull and East Riding Institute for the Blind to ensure their exhibition was inclusive for those with sight loss.

And we’re finished! The Young Designers added a few last minute finishing touches, before opening the exhibition to the public. They were proud to present the finished exhibition to a huge crowd, along with journalists, photographers, students, parents and teachers. 
Well done Design Team! 


DESIGN SESSION 1

In our first session with the Design Team we met Claire from HERIB, who gave the team hints on how to design a great exhibition for someone with a visual impairment to enjoy. The Design Team spent a long time researching the Beasts which were to go on display, with help from Steve at Dinostar, and then in sub teams started to come up with initial ideas on their exhibition design based on all they had learnt.

In this session, The Design Team developed and refined their design ideas into a presentation document. They met Stuart, the builder from Tecnica, and presented their designs to him so that he could advise them on how he could turn their ideas into reality.
