The Exhibition Design discipline at NID takes a multi-disciplinary approach to communicate information and ideas across a range of environments. It focuses on storytelling through environmental experiences that inform, entertain and inspire. The discipline considers exhibition from the perspectives of communication, design and fabrication by developing skills in spatial planning, image-making, narrative-building, lighting design, interactive media technology and scenography. In addition, it relies on a working knowledge of structures, typography, visual design fundamentals, combined with an understanding of human factors. In short, it harnesses physical space and visual storytelling to create environments that communicate.
Exhibition designers work across a wide variety of areas including museums, galleries, trade shows, thematic interior-design environments and scenography for festivities, cultural and theatrical events, environmental branding and signage systems, experience design and virtual museums/environments. They also contribute to public spaces by designing experiences that are not only sensorial but also emotional.Read More Read Less
