Women at Queen Mary
Exhibition and oral history at the People’s Palace
The Women at Queen Mary exhibition told the story of Women at Queen Mary, University of London from 1850 until the present day.
We worked with the QMUL archive team to design a striking exhibition hosted in the historic Octagon on Mile End Road. We designed a distinctive brand for the exhibition, with a colour palette that would sit sympathetically with the interior.
The exhibition included a huge collection of photos, manuscripts and student magazines digitised for the exhibition and for legacy digital applications.
We used Compaq iPaq PDAs (way before the iPad...) to deliver re-enacted oral histories on series of 6 mini-touchscreen listening posts, with each recording referenced in the interpretation panels.
