Introduction

Design for Exhibition and Museums focuses on the design of narrative environments for commercial exhibitions, events, retail spaces, visitor attractions and museums. The programme specialises in ‘storytelling’, whether for a brand, a collection or an idea.

Exhibition designers use a multidisciplinary approach that includes aspects of graphic, interior and interactive design to construct a narrative that acts as an ‘interpretive bridge’ between the client and the audience. The outcome is the creation of interactive, engaging spaces that communicate messages in a memorable and innovative manner.

Students have the chance to work on creative briefs for a range of commercial and cultural exhibition projects. This aspect of the course is designed to prepare students for the varied and constantly evolving exhibition industry, and will introduce current theory in spatial design, museology and marketing. The course is shaped by long-established links with the exhibitions industry, museums and heritage organisations.

Level 1

DEM Exhibition (Core)

This module focuses on applying basic 2D and 3D skills to the design of a small exhibition environment. Students can be introduced to the use of commercial graphics and basic interpretive techniques used by exhibitions designers.

Design Primer (Core)

Exploratory in nature, this module focuses on essential 2D and 3D design skills and their inter-relationship in spatial composition.

The module will aim to introduce students to the study and practice of analytical and measured drawing, orthographics, model making and the concept of design language though the exploration of line, plane, space, form and human scale.

Design Process (Core)

Students have the opportunity to build on a range of essential design skills that can be applied to projects. The generation of design language is enhanced and developed by the introduction of spatial narrative supported by text, images and an introduction to the use of light, materials and construction.

Design Studies (Core)

Design Studies focuses on the integration of design history and theory into studio practice and research informed teaching. It offers both a historical overview and a thematic framework in which to study contemporary design, exhibition and architecture. It focuses on improving visual literacy and stylistic awareness as well as introducing the social and contextual factors that have determined design production through history.

Level 2

Exploration (Core)

The focus of this module is on risk-taking through the critical study of issues in design and the development of imaginative and challenging design concepts. Students can undertake a set project focussing on design innovation and choose, with staff advice, one out of three options: a short placement or a concept design and presentation or a written assignment based on independent critical study.

The module is supported by lectures focussing on the contemporary context of design innovation.

Integration (Core)

This module focuses on a comprehensive design project and its associated stages in relation to professional practice. Through lectures and self-directed study, students will have the opportunity to integrate theory and practical skills into the design, development and management of a small-scale exhibition or museum project.

Interpretation (Core)

Interpretation focuses on the narrative structure and design of multimedia interpretive environments and managed visitor experiences.

The module connects design with the broader concept of material culture and introduces the means by which environments are shaped and made meaningful and communicative. Students can explore how a variety of new and existing exhibition techniques and technologies can be used to communicate content in time and space to an audience.

Resolution (Core)

This module provides the student an opportunity to focus on the resolution of design ideas through detailed consideration of 2D, 3D and programmed elements of exhibits. It connects design with theories of communication, learning and interpretation and associated techniques of evaluation. It extends knowledge of the elements of graphic design, understanding of materials and processes in exhibit construction, and skills in design communication and project presentation.

Level 3

DEM Major Project (Core)

Students combine Technical and Professional Studies to form a comprehensive design project. It brings together all of the elements of the course and presents the student with the opportunity for substantial learning associated with the negotiation, planning, development and presentation of a major design project. The project addresses issues of research, interpretation, design exploration and resolution, and technology in an organic manner.

DEM Option Project (Core)

The focus of this module is on extending intellectual, professional and creative abilities. The aim is to contribute a distinctive project to the final portfolio through sustained critical study of issues in design and development of imaginative and challenging design concepts. The student may choose, with staff advice, one of (normally) five options: a design strategy based on contextual analysis and interpretative planning / brand development, a concept design and presentation, a detail design and presentation, a long essay based on independent critical study or a short placement (when organised by the course tutors).

Rationale (Core)

Students are expected to produce two written documents - a rationale for the major project and a report or poster presentation for the option project. The major project rationale analyses the context of the project, explains the genesis of the design brief, and provides a reasoned argument for each aspect of the design development normally including interpretative scheme, overall visual concept, scheme design and a range of detail design elements. The option project report or poster presentation gives the student the opportunity to engage in a contrasting style of writing.

Technical and Professional Studies (Core)

This module combines with the Major Project to form a comprehensive design project, which brings together all of the elements of the course and presents the student with the opportunity for substantial learning associated with the negotiation, planning, development and presentation of a major design project.

The module aims to introduce students to the key principles of professional practice and provides an opportunity to demonstrate an understanding and application of these principles through the associated creative and technical aspects of the project work.
