Mumien – Rätsel der Zeit

Signage and Interactive Design

While working on the mummy exhibition communication design, we were also asked to create signage and interactive design in collaboration with scenography studio, Emyl. As well as designing the exhibition texts, we created the analog and digital stations. Museum visitors could learn more about the displayed mummies in an interactive, playful way.

The exhibition in the Natural History Museum revealed the broad spectrum of world mummies, categorized according to the different mummifying processes.

Alongside the main room-texts, we created animated quizzes illustrated by Alice Kolb and animated by Manuel Bürkli.

The most well-known and studied mummy is the well-preserved Ötzi. Ötzi lived around 3,300 B.C.E. and is Europe’s oldest known natural human mummy. He has offered an unprecedented glimpse into the prehistoric age of Chalcolithic Europeans. A touchscreen, as big as Ötzi offers visitors the chance to explore the discoveries made by scientists.

The last exhibition room focuses on egyptian mummies. To display the complicated mummification process we developed an illustrative table in collaboration with Emyl and Alice Kolb.
