Nelson, Navy, Nation for National Maritime Museum

The gallery tells the story, from 1688-1815, of how the Royal Navy, with Nelson centre stage, shaped everyday lives, became a central part of society and cemented Britain's place in the world. Period references, (port bottle label typography, maritime map illustration), given a modern graphic re-drafting, provide the graphic interpretation with a visual identity very much all its own born directly from its content. A look and feel that is a refreshing break from NMM's institutional voice that dominates the rest of the Museum - a visual specificity that adds to the sense of immersion in the gallery. The graphic interpretation design sets a new standard in quality and accessible engagement at the Museum. A collaboration with Casson Mann.
