Interpretive Plans & Exhibits

Nomad Studio develops interpretive plans and exhibits for museums, parks, nature centers, and cultural sites throughout the world. This work often includes:

  • Facilitating the development of a vision, mission, and/or strategic goals
  • Developing interpretive strategies for different visitor groups
  • Identifying measurable institutional and visitor outcomes
  • Facilitating meaningful stakeholder engagement
  • Developing compelling themes and storylines
  • Conducting formative and summative evaluation (e.g., focus groups, interviews, surveys)
  • Developing educational content and programs
  • Researching and writing concise, relevant exhibit text
  • Effectively communicating content through graphics and other media
  • Writing audio-visual scripts
  • Providing customized interpretive training for staff and volunteers
  • Providing project management for exhibit design teams
  • Writing grants and developing fundraising strategies

Our planning approach focuses on developing a cohesive, shared vision for interpretation, exhibits, and programs by involving staff, visitors, and other stakeholders in the planning and development process. The result is a detailed, implementable plan with measurable outcomes that help an organization better achieve its goals and meet the needs of its visitors.

At Nomad Studio, we understand that collaborating with others results in outstanding site-wide visitor experiences, thus we often partner with architects, landscape architects, exhibit designers, curators, historians, scientists, and other professionals. We can join an existing team, work independently, or put together a team of our own. We take pride in tailoring our services to the specific needs of our clients, so let us know how we can help.
