Project Description

Interpretive Signage for “Transforming the Land”

In the permanent outdoor exhibit, “Transforming the Land,” visitors to the Los Altos History Museum learn about J. Gilbert Smith and what life was once like in the Valley of Heart’s Delight. In those early days, over 10 million apricots, cherries, and other fruit and nut trees blanketed the valley floor with beautiful blossoms. The exhibit runs the gamut from farming and fruit drying techniques to bringing water and electricity into the house.

I was responsible for the design, illustrations, establishing the sizes and forms, and project management with the out of state sign fabricator. Some of the signs had. interactive components to engage visitors. There were 22 signs in total.
