    • Goals: The  designs  I  worked  on  this  quarter  are  all  components  of  a  large,  temporary  interpre:ve  display  at  our  Refuge  Visitor  Center.    Our  Refuge  is  remote,  so  not  many  people  ever  actually  get  to  visit,  and  it  is  difficult  to  relate  current  research  to  our  visitors.    My  goal  with  the  overall  panel  is  to  bring  relevant  informa:on  about  KiElitz’s  Murrelet  research  to  a  general  audience;  hopefully,  the  audience  will  come  away  with  a  beEer  understanding  of  how  scien:sts  study  a  rare  species,  what  concerns  managers  have  for  the  bird,  and  feel  a  stronger  sense  of  respect  and  stewardship  for  the  natural  world.    Audience: The  audience  is  a  wide  mix  of  people.    We  have  all  ages,  from  toddlers  to  elderly  adults.    The  scien:fic  nature  of  this  display  is  geared  more  towards  adults,  since  there  are  many  other  displays  geared  towards  children.    The  audience  may  have  very  liEle  scien:fic  background  with  no  previous  experience  in  Kodiak,  or  could  be  knowledgeable  local  community  members  who  are  engaged  in  the  scien:fic  community.    Most  visitors  are  in  groups.  Message: When  readers  are  finished  reading  my  informa:on,  I  want  them  to  know  that:  The  Kodiak  NWR  is  currently  trying  to  understand  more  about  the  ecology  and  habitat  of  a  rare  seabird,  the  KiElitz’s  MurreleE,  in  an  effort  to  protect  a  diminishing  popula:on.    Sub-­‐messages  depend  on  the  subject  in  each  panel.  
    • My  first  design  is  intended  as  a  main  panel  as  part  of  the  display,  introducing  the  sec:on  about  the  summer  research.    I  like  the  color  combo  and  the  text  contrast,  but  I  broke  out  some  of  the  info  into  two  separate  frames  for  a  beEer  focus  in  the  following  week.  
    • The  previous  two  designs  were  experiments  in  proximity  and  alignment,  as  I  moved  the  :tles  closer  to  the  text  body  and  played  with  different  leR  and  right  alignment.      
    • The  previous  slide  was  an  experiment  with  a  different  panel,  prac:cing  contrast  through  font,  color,  and  the  photo  itself  (the  chick  in  front  and  the  blurred  mountain  create  depth).    I  ended  up  liking  the  :tle  font  more  than  I  thought  I  would…  
    • The  previous  slide  was  an  experiment  in  style.    I  took  a  similar  design  from  within  our  visitor  center  and  adapted  it  for  this  project.    I  like  the  clean,  elegant  combina:on  of  fonts,  colors,  and  the  muted  background.    I  think  I  might  use  this  for  most  of  the  text-­‐rich  panels,  and  only  use  the  bright,  colorful  photos  for  a  few  larger  panels  throughout.  
    • I’m  s:ll  not  sure  if  I’ll  use  this  as  the  actual  design  that  goes  up  in  the  visitor  center,  but  it  is  a  start.    I  went  back  to  one  of  the  first  panels  I  worked  on  and  tweaked  the  image,  the  fonts,  the  color  scheme,  and  the  alignment,  as  well  as  rewri:ng  the  text.
