Essex County Council, funded by the 'Walls and Gardens' Project, commissioned Ugly Studios to design, produce and install a travelling exhibition about the Napoleonic Home Front. They were particularly interested in a creative approach to interpreting their defence heritage.
A bespoke set of display stands and other furniture fit the client’s travel specifications but also evoke a feel of contemporary military equipment, so as to reinforce the message with the medium. Period feel graphic panels and two specially designed AV units provide a multilevel experience for any venue.
Both the client and visitors to Jaywick Martello Tower were very pleased with the exhibition. In particular the interactives we designed for them – a jigsaw and the Bogs and Bridges game - proved very popular. The exhibition is now offered out to other venues.
What we did
Physical Interactives and Models
They created an exhibition that was informative and exciting, and the interactives went down really well with our visitors.
