Thanks to Shengyuan I have a come across an abundance of historical and way-finding materials currently or previously used by the Kelsey museum. This is great because it gives me a good starting point, it helps me so what needs to be improved, and it helps me fill in the missing pieces of parts of the museum I'm not very familiar with.
Here are some of the images/materials she shared with me:
Next step in my process will be reaching out to the exhibition designer for the Kelsey, Eric Campbell. Shengyuan mentioned to me her professor may be able to help, and also my professor Franc told me he had a contact as well. I just need to make sure I'm getting a hold of the right people, and any direction is helpful!
Another next step will be creating a "brand" for my way-finding materials I will be creating. I do plan to use similar fonts/color choices as the current material, but of course update it as I see fit.
