As a lead up to the 2019 50th anniversary of the first manned landing on the Moon in 1969 the Museum of Flight decided to retell the epic story of the Apollo program and the race to step foot on the Moon.
The exhibit strategy was to create an awe-inspiring, immersive experience that not only tells of the feat itself but the behind the scenes planning, people, and steps it took to finally put a man on the Moon. This required remodeling a darkened 4,000 square foot area of the existing space exhibit to accommodate many Apollo-era artifacts including a moon rock, a massive unused Saturn V F-1 rocket engine, and mission-flown engine parts recovered off the floor of the Atlantic by Jeff Bezos and his Bezos Expeditions team.
As an integral part of the creative team, responsibilities included: concept development and planning; exhibit identity research, development, and design; environment graphics visual aesthetics development, design, illustrations and layouts; production and production management and oversight of graphic installation. After three years of development and delays over 200 graphic components were produced for this exhibit.
