Designing exhibitions at SFO Museum (SFOM) was a collaborative effort, involving Curators who invent, research, and write the exhibitions, museum Registration staff who handle and track the objects, Preparators who build and install the exhibitions, and airport staff who maintain the facility and security.
My role was to design and produce all the exhibition graphics, and work with the Curators to bring visual elements and aspects of their story to life. As an American Alliance of Museums (AAM) accredited institution, our work met high standards for accessibility and best practices.
From Hare to Eternity: The Enduring Art of Warner Bros. Animation (August 2007 – March 2008). Title treatment concept and artwork, case labels from text document, all layout and production.
Large character art on case backs scanned from original animation gels. Created video loops used in several cases. Title after "Loony Tunes" original titles.
SFO Museum relied on me for a wide variety of design tasks, but technically I was employed as a Curator and would often need to don the white gloves and handle authentic, rare museum objects. Studio photography or high-resolution scanning of museum objects was routine, and I would often assist with installations of exhibitions.
Besides design and production of graphics for the exhibitions, responsibilities included video editing, in-situ photography and archive of the exhibitions, printing booklets, brochures and managing print vendors, pretty much anything related to computers or technology, and managing the SFO Museum website.
