Galt Museum & Archives

I am fortunate to design exhibit panels for my former employer, including for feature exhibits, smaller exhibits displayed in hallway spaces, outdoor spaces, and matching the look of travelling exhibits for additional local content. In 2021 this was expanded to include design of an exhibit catalogue.

For examples of marketing related and special project work, see the Other Projects section.

FORT WHOOP-UP

The Galt Museum has operated nearby Fort Whoop-Up since 2016. Before the Fort was put under new management by the City of Lethbridge, I was asked to assist the Galt with a marketing plan to include in the successful proposal, and with website updates once the Fort was handed over. I then designed the new indoor and outdoor interpretive signage. Annual additions to the Fort’s interpretive spaces means ongoing signage design.
