Echelon Design Inc., which designs, produces and manages exhibits and provide multi-media solutions, released the latest episode of the 12 for 12 Podcast Series, which tackles the intricately creative process of building tradeshow exhibits. The free series of 12-minute podcasts was created to inform, entertain and inspire creative individuals and professionals to examine new and innovative approaches to design, particularly in the exhibit industry in the U.S. and abroad.
Episode 5 focuses on how scale affects the success of interactive spaces – taking size, boundaries and emotional response into consideration. Host Adam Voss travels to Kohl Children’s Museum in Glenview, Ill., to speak with museum President and CEO Sheridan Turner.
The two discuss how scale plays into creating effective and engaging spaces, and how integrating an audience’s perspective into design will ultimately result in more immersive experiences. For example, bigger is not always better when building a display, as an overly cavernous space can be perceived as overwhelming and intimidating.
Past episodes of 12 for 12 have included:
- Lighting and Human Application
- Sustainability: Growing Your Exhibit
- Proxemics: The Art of Being Close
- How Audio Affects Your Audience
