Canadian Museum of History
The Canadian Museum of History, with roots stretching back to 1856, is one of Canada’s oldest public institutions and a respected centre of museological excellence, sharing its expertise in history, archaeology, ethnology and cultural studies both within Canada and abroad.
Our relationship with the CMH started in 2012 and continues with projects ranging from printed collateral and souvenir catalogues, to signage, promotional materials and exhibition support materials. Our contributions include work on various exhibitions such as Terry Fox: Running to the Heart of Canada, Empress of Ireland: Canada’s Titanic, and Snow/Neige, as well as the Museum’s permanent collections.

CANADIAN ARCTIC EXPEDITION
100TH ANNIVERSARY DISPLAY CASEDeveloped collaboratively with the Museum and the Royal Canadian Mint, this temporary display was commissioned to showcase newly-minted coins designed in recognition of the centennial anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition. Our solution included the full design and specification of the case and display.
TERRY FOX EXHIBITION
PRODUCTION GRAPHICS, ACTIVITY SHEET, AND DIGITAL MAPSWe were chosen by the Canadian Museum of History to create all of the production graphics for the Terry Fox Exhibition in 2015. A large part of this was creating all of the digital maps for the interactive touch screens, as well as designing an Activity Sheet for school children.
GALLERY G ENTRANCE SIGNDesignated to specifically showcase collaborative exhibitions produced by the History Museums Network, Gallery G required an entrance sign to communicate this mandate to CMH visitors. Designed with the Museum's new brand and visual standards in mind, this free-standing sign will be used as a basis for all future free-standing CMH signs.
