Birmingham: its people, its history explores the history of the development of the city, and the people who live there. Four galleries focus on the development of the city from its earliest beginnings to 1945. A fifth gallery reveals the character and identity of Birmingham and its people today and their living memories of the city's more recent past.
The graphics are presented across 1040 square metres of display space. Philip Simpson Design developed the detail design and production ready artwork for over 600 graphic panels and hands on interactives. As part of the artwork contract we were also responsible for the commissioning and production of new illustrations, maps and diagrams. Working closely with the curatorial team and 3d designers (Redman Design), the short intense programme (3 months) meant we had to work quickly and our team were praised for delivering the whole project on time and within budget.
