On the road with the archive
Designed for trade shows, conference and paper specification events, this display booth was created as a backdrop to both attract attention and to set off the amazing selections from the Strathmore Archives.
The booth uses select pieces from the collection of 125+ years of Strathmore ephemera. Each piece was photographed and then its colors compressed to two shades of gray. The compressed color palette provides an overall harmony to the booth and enables us to blend work from diverse eras and set off the existing blond display boxes. The lovely Hoefler and Frere-Jones created Strathmore wordmark (also based upon a piece in the collection) takes center stage.
Captivating on its own the new booth quickly fade to the background once you begin to examine the work in the warmly-lit cases.
