Even before we flew to Portland to the studios of exhibit wizards Second Story, we had seen their genius at work. We were invited to watch them present their Age of Mammals exhibit to the Museum of Natural History of Los Angeles County’s senior staff. We donned our hard hats and watched as they showed off to paleontologists and curators. It’s no easy task to create displays that are compelling to kindergartners and yet accurate enough to please scientists—but they nailed it.
Join the Creative Inspirations team as we head north to meet the folks behind some of the most compelling exhibit media out there. In this Creative Inspirations documentary, we meet Second Story, creators of award-winning interactive projects for clients that include the Getty Museum, National Geographic, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Smithsonian Institution, just to name but a few.
Founders Julie Beeler and Brad Johnson introduce us to their uniquely talented studio where their signature interactive design is conceived and produced. Second Story creates immersive adventures that educate and entertain through compelling visuals, touch and play, and inspiring participation through curiosity.
