Design Challenge and Design Ideas

Running from 21 Nov 2019 — 8 Mar 2020, Troy: myth and reality at the British Museum was the first major Troy exhibition in the UK. It revealed the lasting legacy of stories from the Trojan War, showcasing the discoveries made by Heinrich Schliemann in Turkey in the 1870s and included over 300 marble sculptures, paintings and archaeological objects from the real site of Troy.

As part of the exhibition, I was commissioned by the exhibition designers Ralph Appelbaum Associates to illustrate the Story Wall, which formed a backdrop to the exhibition space and placed the exhibition objects within a visualised narrative sequence.

How the brief was fulfilled

The Story Wall highlighted four key moments in the story of the Trojan War — The Beginnings, The Wrath of Achilles, The Fall of Troy and The Returns. The final illustration was a line illustration in a single colour mimicking the type of art seen on the Greco-Roman objects around the gallery and at a final size of 43metres x 6metres, it spanned the length and height of the main exhibition space.

Love how this all came together, it really works in the space. Elegant and accessible, and doesn’t fight with the artifacts
