US air museum to offer design work?

The American Air Museum In Britain, which last week received a 6.5m Lottery grant to build its home in Cambridgeshire, may appoint graphic and exhibition designers. The museum is intended to record the role of US forces in the Second World War.

London’s Island Design has provided an initial identity and promotional material for the 11m project. The identity may be kept, according to Steve Woolford, head of exhibitions at the Imperial War Museum, of which the Duxford project is a branch.

“We’ll need graphic design at some point,” he adds . “We may use a mix of our staff and freelances, or we may look for a specialist consultancy. We’re debating how best to tell the different stories.”
