The Neel Company Tradeshow Booth

The Neel Company exhibited frequently throughout the year at national and regional conferences. As Creative and Marketing Director I not only designed the trade show displays and collateral, but also guided sales on which shows to attend and managed accordingly.

While not the most modern booth type, The Neel Company preferred to maintain a velcro style pop-up booth. Graphics were custom designed to feature appropriate elements for each conference. I was able to streamline and update graphics for the booth and incorporate eye-catching elements such as a product video played using a small screen and short throw projector. Using a projector instead of a monitor saved on shipping and installation costs, a priority for The Neel Company.

Email campaigns to attendees were sent prior to conferences, encouraging visitors to stop by the booth.

Setting the President’s Table: American Presidential China at Mt. Vernon

Mount Vernon Estate and Garden exhibited an extensive collection of presidential china dating from George Washington’s presidency to the 20th century.

The font and style choices I made emphasized the regal nature of the collection and fulfilled the clients desire for a ‘jewel box’ feel to highlight the precious nature of the china artifacts. Use of a deeply saturated blue and gold palette also emphasized the rich, historic feel of the exhibit. Read more…

Mexican Treasures of the Smithsonian at the Smithsonian Latino Center

An enormous bilingual exhibit, Mexican Treasures of the Smithsonian brought together a collection of Latin artifacts from several of the Smithsonian museums. Exhibit graphics included large panels, mid and small-size panels, maps, and labels.

To design the graphic motifs I turned to the exhibit objects, designing elements and patterns based upon ones I found in the collection. Examples of these patterns can be seen in the backgrounds of all the panels.

I later assisted with the installation of the exhibit graphics.
