Steam, Steel and Submarines

Exhibition Design

We were asked to redesign the ‘Steam, Steel and Submarine’ Gallery in the Historic Dockyard, Chatham.  We played to the strengths of the gallery – fine architecture, powerful artefacts and strong human stories – and developed a language of playful illustration, especially on the graphic panels, many of which were conceived so that they were entirely pictorial. They have been hugely popular with families and children.
