Step 1

Collaboration

We work closely with client teams, stakeholders and collaborators to identify, develop and challenge the norm to create truly inspirational and engaging solutions.

Part museum, part lab allows us to investigate, explore, commission, research and celebrate games and play within the realm of museums, galleries, heritage, Science centres and more.

Step 2

Research

At the heart of every HKD project is a research and passion lead design solution that works for you. Our team consists of leading experts in a wide range of fields from cutting-edge genetics to iron-age production techniques. We believe that a having solid understanding of a subject really allows us to develop unique and real experiences.

Step 3

Design

We believe that learning through play & games (active engagement and fun) allows visitors to better understand a new concept or idea, take on a different perspective, or experiment with different choices.

Learning through play and games, turning visitors into participants.

Our passion for new and exciting approaches has allowed us to develop unique, world-class exhibits and continue to create engaging visitor experiences for over the last 20 years.

Step 4

Development

We work closely with our client teams and their end users to develop and refine designs to create fun, engaging and memorable experiences.

Step 5

Testing

We design real experiences, not just concepts. This means they must be robust, fun and safe. We prototype and test everything from the cleaning of the materials to how users interact with our designs.

Selected Projects

Winchester Science Centre

We worked closely with the Winchester Science Centre team to create a science centre that embodies the idea that science is for all. We worked hard to overcome barriers to participation and engagement including cutting edge acoustic design. The goal was to help young people believe that STEM is for them.
God's House Tower

The permanent arts and heritage exhibition is part of the medieval building’s £3.1million refurbishment and tells the story of the medieval Town Quay gatehouse. As interpretation designers on the project, we worked with local history expert Dr Cheryl Butler to uncover the lives of felons, gunners, pilgrims and traders which the 700 year old building has housed. The immersive exhibition features the gruesome tale of Southampton’s last hanging, the French invasion of 1388 and a 360 degree VR tour of the tower.
Hong Kong Space Museum

HKD are delighted to have worked on the complete refurbishment of the galleries within this iconic building on the Hong Kong waterfront. Our design approach makes the complex ideas of space accessible through intelligent exhibit design and engaging storytelling, focusing on hands-on experience and experimentation.
