MeLab Gallery in The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science

An elaborate, icon-driven, illustration program characterizes the design of this science museum gallery, of which a key feature is the ability to pack away exhibit elements into an event mode every evening.

A set of bilingual activity “portals” prioritized hands-on learning, and were designed to convey complex scientific or social concepts with visuals and minimal text. Their design featured custom infographics, over 300 icons, a friendly character that joins visitors throughout their journey, and a card to collect stamps at each portal. When set in event mode, a patterned design treatment is revealed on the back of each portal.
