The exhibit is a recreation of a typical Maasai village. This display consists of three huts: a family hut, an elder hut (an elder serving as a village leader or advisor), and a hut under construction. The “under construction” hut is purposely left unfinished to illustrate the techniques and materials used by these people to build their dwellings.
This project started as an internship that turned into a designer job and then an exhibit designer position. My part in this project was the signage and implementation of them. I also created digital and print press releases and all advertising branding, including banners and billboards.

It was great to meet a Massai Elder at the exhibit’s opening.
