Inspiration for design can come from anywhere. Our recently opened exhibition for the Washington State History Museum is a great example. “Road Trip of the Catastrophes” utilizes a illustrated storytelling technique to take visitors on a trip through the State of Washington. Stops along the way reveal elemental forces responsible for shaping the Washington landscape: volcanoes, glaciers, floods, and climate change.
Inspiration for the exhibit came from a family road trip Bill took in the summer of 2004. He wanted to follow a route he had taken as a young boy that would show his children the diversity of geology in the State of Washington. Little did he know, that one day it would influence a new exhibition.
