Open for Discovery - Francis Crick Institute, London

The Francis Crick Institute is the largest biomedical research facility in Europe. I worked as part of the KCA graphics team to develop the exhibition identity and graphics for their first major public exhibition, Open for Discovery. The exhibition explores how scientists at the Crick are re-thinking research to help shape the future of human health.
Exhibition elements included large dibond panels, hanging banners, vinyl on the building facade and postcards that form part of an interactive piece. I worked on the graphic layouts, oversaw print and artwork stages and was involved in the exhibition installation.
I designed the main hero image used across the galleries marketing collateral. The image consisted of scribbles and note-like elements that I reproduced from existing notes found on scientists whiteboards at the Crick. This reflects the rigorous thought process, challenges and trials and tribulations involved in reaching a discovery.
