Commercial trade fairs, brand experiences, themed attractions, world expositions, museum galleries, visitor centers, historic houses, landscape interpretation and art installation are all areas that can be categorized under the broad umbrella term of ‘exhibition’. Millions of people visit exhibitions of one sort or another every year and globally it is a multi-billion dollar industry. Basics Interior Design: Exhibition Design offers a better understanding of the complexity of exhibition design as a discipline, by exploring the role of the exhibition designer as a creative practitioner. It considers the blurring of borders with other design disciplines, but interior, graphic design and marketing in particular.
Supported by case study examples and practical in nature, this book offers a guide on how to approach the design of the narrative.
'This is a useful book and I have not seen another on this subject matter ... the text is an easy read and capable of being 'flicked' through for inspiration.' - Tony Bechelet, Highlands College, Jersey.
