Exhibition Designer

Dorset Museum are looking for an exhibition designer to take forward the 3D design and graphic design for the forthcoming exhibition Elisabeth Frink: A View from Within.

The exhibition will open at Dorset Museum on 29 November 2023, and subsequently tour to two of our partners in the Wessex Museums Partnership – Swindon Museum and Art Gallery (June – October 2024) and then to the Salisbury Museum (May – October 2025).

The appointed designer (and sub-contractor if required) will be expected to develop and finalise layouts and any 3D design elements for the Dorset Museum exhibition; adapt the designs for spaces at the Salisbury Museum and Swindon Museum, creating basic layouts; create a graphic identity for the exhibition, and design all necessary artwork for labels, text panels, wall vinyl and other graphic materials; sub-contract and oversee construction of any agreed fit-out elements for the exhibition including plinths.
