Virtual MLK Project

Identity and spatial graphics designed for an exhibit dedicated to adding nuance and tangibility to Civil Rights history

Fall 2019 - Spring 2020

The Virtual MLK Project is a multi-faceted experience to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s widely influential speech titled, “A Creative Protest.” The research along with the VR experience provided an embodied sense of what it would have been like to witness the historic sanctuary during King's speech.

Areas of Focus

Identity, UI/UX, Wayfinding


The design decisions were informed by the exhibit’s intent to amplify unheard fragments of Civil Rights history.


We streamlined the user journey and created spatial mockups to iterate on what the exhibit would look like.


We created a wayfinding system that consists of branded signage placed within Hunt Library in an unobtrusive yet prominent manner.
