Musée d’Scout

Musee d'Scout is an internal gallery showing that was born after dscout’s Studio team went on a creative outing. The art showing was a fun way for the entire company to have some fruit, cheese, beverages and enjoy team members creative works.

Deliverables
I owned the creative direction of the event’s branding, which included the email invitation, desk flyers, posters, and also collaborated with the Studio director on the “floating” hanging installation, interactive “kids table,” and with a fellow analyst on the promotional video.

Direction
Our second Musee d'Scout was a gallery of pottery creations. Clay is heavy and hard, but creativity is all about weightlessness. The artwork was illustrated to feel messy and a little all over the place (similar to the clay before you start shaping) with clusters of clay swirls, spinning wheels, feathers, and birds. I then placed 13 bowls in the artwork for each Studio team member’s piece. For the announcement email graphic, we went with black and white and then added color to the rest of the promotional materials. This was inspired by the process of how clay starts out muted and then evolves when color and glaze is added.

Concept of the “kid’s” table mural.

Floating and floor installations. The feathers added a light and whimsical feel.

Both the hanging and floor platforms were crafted from foam core and hot glued together. We decided on fishing wire, which was barely noticeable and gave the illusion that the bowls were floating.
