Brooklyn Museum Map
The museum’s map was redesigned with two primary goals: to reduce the number of folds and to to reduce frequency of reprints. Previously a trifolded brochure with a french fold, the map was frequently reprinted to accomodate gallery rotations. The new design, with a redrawn map of the museum, highlights the permanent collection and moves the rotating exhibitions to a separate insert (yellow).

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: A Crack in the Hourglass, An Ongoing COVID-19 Memorial
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer created a memorial to those lost—unbound by time or place. Portraits of loved ones are rendered in sand, printed by a modified plotter. The portraits disappear almost as soon as they are completed. Finished portraits are photographed, printed, and added to the gallery on a monthly basis. 

The design of the exhibition was a close collaboration between curatorial, exhibition design, and graphic design with parameters from the artist. All of the exhibition graphics conform to a grid created by the tabloid-sized portraits.
