About plastics

Over the past few months, we have been developing a permanent case for the museum space. We have thought long and hard about the content and the stories we have wanted to tell within the history and development of plastics in design

About plastics explores design in plastics through:


One thing we have really struggled with is the layout and application of the text. We had a stab at it but we were never going to get it right as we are curators and not graphic designers. 


Our attempt at the text design

However, as we are based within the Arts University Bournemouth, we are lucky enough to know a few graphic designers who have the skills to help us.

We have employed the very talented first year BA (hons) Graphic Design students, Catherine Muldoon and Miroslav Ivanov, to help us get it looking good. We currently have an initial draft in place in the case and it already looks so much better than our attempt. 




The work of Catherine and Miroslav

There will be a bit of editing to do before we commit to the vinyl on the wall but we are very excited about how it is coming together.  Thank you Catherine and Miroslav.
