Rooted: How Trees Give Us Life

CLIENT: Galt Museum & Archives

What could be so hard about fitting various images and text into shaped panels and maintain a semblance of consistency?! This design brief called for a large-scale feature panel [8×8′], plus 20 exhibit and topic intros and story panels [36.5×40″ and 26.5×30″] set up in two ovoid themes, with text overlaid on photos where possible.

We settled on polygons for the intros, ovoids for the stories, and a few rectangles thrown in for good measure.
