Smith and Jones are museum gallery designers getting involved in all aspects of a modern museum gallery design process. We help museums refresh and rejuvenate their gallery displays for a more modern, engaging concept.
To enable us to design a museum gallery, we submerge ourselves in a museums collection and potential themes and stories, often creating an interpretive framework for the museum gallery. Only once we have a thorough understanding of these do we move onto the design process.
We consider aspects such as space planning and visitor flow, museum display case design, object mounts, hands on interactives, graphic design, audio visual installations and museum gallery lighting.
We successfully designed and managed eleven different museum galleries at our recent redevelopment of the Museum of East Dorset in Wimborne, located throughout a substantial historic town house.
