The Virtual MLK Project is a multi-faceted experience to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s widely influential speech titled, “A Creative Protest.” The research presented throughout the exhibit, along with the Virtual Reality experience, provides an embodied sense of what it might have been like to sit, stand, and move around the historic sanctuary during King's speech.
The project was planned to hold an exhibit in NCSU's Hunt Library on the 60th anniversary of the speech. Our design team set out to propose an exhibit design that would provide clear and consistent way-finding throughout the many different and dispersed areas of NCSU's Hunt Library, as well as create an effective branding strategy that encapsulated the life of the Civil Rights Movement.
In February of 2020, visitors to the North Carolina State University Hunt Library participated in self-guided tours as well as instructor-guided and/or public exhibitions of the six components of the vMLK project. The event was incredibly successful and the graphics that our team helped create certainly amplified that success.
The physical components our team contributed to to this exhibit include: exhibit touchpoint stands, all interactive and free-standing graphics, instructional posters, logo design, promotional material, and its way-finding brochure.
