ROLE Design and adaption of the exhibition graphics for US-audiences + interpretative writing + exhibition book design for the US-American premier of the travelling exhibition ‘Egypt — The Time of Pharaohs’ at the Cincinnati Museum Center in 2019 and the upcoming exhibition tour in the U.S.
I first worked on this project for The Royal BC Museum in Victoria in 2018 and adapted the exhibition graphics for smaller versions of the exhibition for the Natural History Museum of Utah in 2021 and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in 2022.
ABOUT ‘Egypt — The Time of Pharaohs’ reveals the mysteries of the great pharaohs and explores the daily life in ancient Egypt. Stunning artefacts, vivid multimedia spaces, hands-on elements, films, animations and a 3D-hologram of a mummy shed new light on the complexities of one of the most advanced and pre-eminent civilizations in the world.
The exhibition architecture was designed by Formation muenchen; the design of the exhibition graphics was a co-production with their graphic design team. The exhibition was co-curated by Christian Tietze from Weimar and Christian Bayer from the Roemer-and Pelizaeus Museum.
This is the US edition of the exhibition book — originally designed it with a different (more jazzy) cover / key visual for The Royal BC Museum.
