We are seeking a creative design company who will use an imaginative, playful and fun design to take visitors on a journey through the digestive system. This is not about creating a standard exhibition, but an immersive set design that works within a gallery setting. The design team will work with the partners to realise a multi-sensory experience for families that is dynamic, surprising and entertaining.
The successful Design Team will deliver the 2D, and 3D design for our forthcoming temporary and touring exhibition, Operation Ouch! Digestion. This project requires a creative, multi-disciplinary studio with demonstrable track record of delivering exceptional exhibitions, visitor experiences and larger than life setworks, that integrate and foreground interactive and playful moments.  They will need to respond to the key design challenge of translating the iconic look and feel of the TV show into a 3D experience.
