Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: Films and Interactive Exhibits

Reimagine the stories of flight

Washington, DC


In 2022 we completed a once in a generation redesign of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Fifty-five custom media experiences reimagined interpretation for America's most visited museum foregrounding underrepresented perspectives and connecting with the Smithsonian's modern target audience. The work included film, original animation, and a full suite of digital interactives to bring visitors closer to showcase artifacts like the Wright Flyer and the Apollo 11 command module.

Scope Highlights
