Pause|Play

Pause|Play was an invitation for the young and the young-at-heart to leave the digital world behind, hit pause on their busy lives, and recapture the nostalgia of play. This was the first exhibit designed, created, produced, and installed all in-house at the Fleet Science Center.

Pause|Play Ball Pit

The First of Its Kind

This exhibit was the Fleet's first exhibit wholly created in-house, from concept to design to production to installation. Incredibly, the exhibition was designed, produced, and installed in under six months.

Play Things

While my design was not chosen for the final logo, this particular logo concept was so much fun to create that I later went on to create a display font based off the idea.

Combined Efforts

These are a selection of the in-house design team's logo concepts.

The Pool Deck

The pool deck was a ball pit with two separate lanes, in which visitors could test different ways of "floating" on "water molecules." This was one of several areas I created and installed graphics for.

Seek & Find

The Hide & Seek wall was one of many sections that made up the overall exhibit. I created a pattern that hid the words "Hide & Seek" and "Pause" and "Play," words that more easily stand
out when looking through colored filters installed in ping pong paddles (red, blue, and green).
The finished product was also a test of my vinyl installation abilities as the pattern called for precise application.
