We were pleased to work with Historian Dr. Karen Schamberger, and Lambing Flat Folk Museum in Young, on the revamp of the goldrush and Lambing Flat riots display panels.
We worked on their exhibition series back in 2008 – RAISING THE COLOUR – YOUNG FROM GOLDFIELD TO TOWNSHIP, and now it was time for a new look.
The content was revised to provide a fresh new narrative with streamlined text. The reduced word count enabled greater readability. A new engaging design look and feel was created with rich earthy colours, inspired by the museum collection. A mixture of textural backgrounds combined added depth and also conveys the history. We combined these design elements in a grid-like layout with short snippets of content to produce a 2-panel large-format timeline.
Panels printed full colour on 3mm Alupanel:
8 large Information Panels: – 900mmW x 1400mmH
2 Large format information panels (timeline) 2000mmW x 1200mmH
1 x large printed canvas fabric banner 1500mmW x 2160mmH
