During the Design Development phase we develop, review and revise specific and comparatively detailed design drawings, descriptions and specifications for all project components. These are prepared in plan and elevation form, with sections, details and notes as needed to clearly indicate the desired design direction of each proposed exhibit, for the purposes of evaluating its effectiveness and feasibility.
Also during this phase we work closely with the project’s architects and landscape architects to ensure appropriate integration and coordination of our individual design efforts. In consultation with other project consultants and designers we develop design directions and functional requirements for exhibit lighting and audiovisual and/or multimedia programs. Initial color and materials selections are made for all project components, and preliminary project graphic design directions are established, including typography and graphic standards, proposed production methods, and guidelines for image selection and interpretive copy writing.
