A 360-degree timeline immerses visitors in a history of Northwest innovation, while a nine-foot-high graphic novel depicts stories of Seattle’s global pioneers including Boeing, Starbucks, and Amazon. Throughout, the exhibition invites visitors to contribute their own opinions, ideas and personal stories, asking: “Who inspires you?” and “What problems need solving now?” These ongoing contributions and a rotating “What’s Next?” exhibit remind visitors that the best ideas are still to come.
Our strong color, illustration and typography palette helped to unify a very broad mix of content. The use of flipping and sliding panels, cranks and illumination helps to bring life, animation and interest to even those exhibits with no artifacts to display.

“The multitude of approaches designed to tell the story [of innovation] are themselves seamless with the content. It is a brilliant and engaging execution.”
