MILWAUKEE—ZEBRADOG, a nationally known creator of spaces that delight, inform and engage, has installed a spectacular new multimedia exhibit at the Junior Achievement Kohl Education Center in Milwaukee. Click here to view photos: http://blog.zebradog.com/achievement.
The new Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame exhibit, sponsored by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, functions as an interactive showcase of the 80-plus men and women who have been inducted into the Hall since 1990. More than 10,000 students are expected to visit the JA Kohl’s Education Center this year. They will experience JA BizTown a fully-interactive simulated town and JA Finance Park, aimed at making personal financial decisions through hands-on, simulated experiences.
The new exhibit features interactive iPad displays, energy graphics, a multimedia wall, and more. The result is a dynamic experience that makes the stories of Wisconsin business leaders—from Harley Davidson to Johnson Controls to the Green Bay Packers to American Girl—come alive for visitors to the Hall.
“The Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame exhibit designed by ZEBRADOG is an exciting addition to the Junior Achievement Kohl’s Education Center,” says Tim Greinert, President of Junior Achievement. “We are proud to celebrate the men and women who have been inducted into the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame and to share their inspirational stories. These laureates are entrepreneurs, dreamers, risk takers and leaders who followed their vision and passion to help shape the economic landscape of business in Wisconsin.”
Before ZEBRADOG created and installed the new exhibit, there wasn’t a physical location to showcase the Laureates inducted into the Hall of Fame. Now students and visitors can use the iPads to explore the Laureates’ contributions in a dynamic way through stories, videos and images. In addition, large impact graphics surround the exhibit with key words to inspire visitors as they engage in the interactive and hands-on learning opportunities that are part of the exhibit.
“Junior Achievement is such a great program and we are proud that the comprehensive experience this new exhibit brings to their facility will engage and inspire students in new ways—and at the same time will honor the business leaders, donors and volunteers who have contributed so much its history,” says Mark Schmitz, creative director and principal of ZEBRADOG. “With this project, we successfully visualized, designed and implemented an exhibit that perfectly tells the stories of these exceptional Laureates in an interactive, high-tech, and dynamic environment.”
