I worked with the Exhibits Design staff at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh to design interpretive panels for a series of interactive, outdoor educational exhibits that were commissioned for the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. These five stations are featured in the Hillside Pollinator Garden, Margaret Lawrence Simon Dogwood Meadow and the Apiary.
I was supplied information for the panels by the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. I then designed the panels that accompanied the interactive elements that were designed and built by an Exhibit Designer at the Children's Museum. I sourced and created the visuals for the interpretive panels. Many of the gorgeous photos of native pollinators were supplied by pollinator conservationist Heather Holm.
I created graphics for all of these elements:
What is Pollination? How plants use pollination to complete their life cycle
Adaptation: How plants and pollinators are adapted to each other
The Importance of Pollinators: How pollinators play a vital role in our food system and in the wider ecosystem.
Pollinator Conservation: How your actions can impact pollinators.
Apiary: A panel about native bees, interpretive inserts on demonstration bee hive, and a photo opportunity cut out of an adult and child beekeeper
Tools Used: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop
