Mars Colony Museum Booth
Mars Colony Museum
For CMU Student Dormitory Council's (SDC) 2017 booth, we created a theme around a theoretical Mars Colony and its respective museum. For this project, I designed graphics in collaboration with David Perry that would be used on the interior and exterior of the booth, as well as on promotional materials. Note: I did not design the physical structure of the booth.
I started by creating a logo and wordmark for the museum and for its theoretical overseeing organization (the Solar Department of Culture).
These logos were used on the front face of the booth and on promotional materials.
The second part of this project consisted of creating a timeline graphic for the side wall of the booth. The timeline illustrated the history of our theoretical Mars Colony. David and I worked closely together to develop a visual language for the graphics. David created a few common elements that were used throughout the designs, and I decided on a foundational color palate, which was also shared with the promotional materials.
The hexagonal timeline icons were printed on vinyl and then mounted on laser-cut wood boards on the side of the booth. We finished the timeline by painting lines and stenciling the dates.
While challenging, this was definitely one of the most fun experiences I have ever been apart of. I learned so much and met some amazingly talented and wonderful people along the way as well. Our booth ended up winning third place in our category!
