Drawers

Below you can see another one of several examples of major exhibit design projects that I completed while working at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, a new natural history museum in Vancouver. Each of these includes a brief description of the project, as well as a breakdown of the basic design elements.

While not as readily visible as the shadowbox displays, the drawer units are rich in information and comprise the bulk of the educational content at the museum. Each of these thirty-two units has a total of seven displays which explore a cohesive theme. I designed over one third of the 224 drawers and drawer tops.





  1. Informational graphics are created based on available data.
  2. Supplementary text is used to further the narrative of the drawer.
  3. Specimens are photographed and digitally mocked up for review.
  4. The text tells the story behind the drawer.
  5. Display-specific illustrations are designed to suit the display.
