Trademark | Brand Identity | Digital Extension


Funded by NASA as Kansas’ Premier Science Center, The Exploration Place has grown into much more over the years by branching out with Earth and technology learning centers. This proposed rebrand will accommodate all the immersive exhibitions EXPLOR Science & Discovery has to offer. The primary logo represents the outer space elements since that is what they’re known for and the brand extension will incorporate the Earth sciences that the museum has expanded into. Visitors will have the choice if they want to be an ‘astronaut’ or an ‘explorer’ on the digital extension and that will determine what merchandise is branded with: space or earth.

This will include a full brand development with a new name, color palette, typekit, and various touchpoints such as merchandise, signage, personalized publication, and an interactive storyline to elevate Explor Science & Discovery experience.

To make things easier and organize for large groups such as class field trips visitors will receive a bag at check-in with everything they need provided by the museum or arranged with the school. There will be a version with the brand extension logo and imagery for those that chose to be an explorer during their visit. The drawstring will also come in multiple colors to help children keep track of which bag is theirs.

As an opportunity to educate children on recycling there will be a recyclable water bottle system. Visitors will receive this bottle at entrance or in their all-access bag and are expected to drop off at marked location on their way out.

Summary | Ideation Process | Outcomes


Explor boasts a wide array of exhibitions and activities, yet it currently lacks a unifying feature that connects all of these offerings. Presently, visitors have the option to purchase tickets for individual museum exhibits or opt for an all-access pass. Interestingly, most people lean towards the all-access pass due to minimal price differences.

Given that Explor is a popular destination for local family outings and field trips, it's highly likely that not every exhibit appeals to everyone. To address this, we propose the integration of an interactive adventure that spans the entire museum, enticing all visitors to explore the entirety of our offerings.

Our solution involves creating a digital extension that becomes active with the purchase of an all-access pass. This digital extension will enable users to immerse themselves in interactive storylines, offering them the choice to become an Astronaut on a thrilling mission or an Explorer embarking on an exciting quest, thereby enhancing their overall museum experience.
