Miramichi Salmon

Jeff Bray of Form-Media spear headed this project for The Miramichi Salmon Museum in Newcastle (now Miramichi) New Brunswick.

We were asked to fabricate a ceiling mounted mobile of a school of full sized salmon, a variety of window sill mounted interpretive panels, curved interior graphic walls and a large 3D topographic model of the surrounding area showing the walking trails, and some custom desks to hold the microscope & screen.

Lynda McConnell did a fantastic job of realistically painting the fiberglass fish which hung from the ceiling from a ladder type structure.

The topo map tested our 3D routing skills, but turned out quite well indeed. The topography was exaggerated to emphasize the vertical climbs and descents.

The modular light weight graphic walls performed a duel role by providing room divisions as well as providing large printed interpretive areas.

Form-Media did an excellent job on the graphic design.
