The Design Process
Using the storyboard as a guide, proceed to:
1 Display of exhibition space
2 Circulation space
3 Natural and Artificial Lighting
4 Designing sound systems.

Design Considerations:

Many features of galleries that must be considered when organizing and
planning a new space. Some of those aspects are circulation, density,
lighting, backgrounds, arrangement, and labels.
The circulation of the space indicates the layout and direction of flow for
visitors. This can be done by numbering objects, or the layout of displays.
Poor circulation can result in the patron missing some galleries or displays
or viewing objects in an order other than what the curator intended.
Circulation should feel natural and logical; the patron may feel herded and
become resentful.
Lighting is extremely important and cannot be overlooked when planning
new galleries. Natural light is ideal, but it must be filtered, and not too
intense. It also should be consistent throughout the day northern and
southern exposure is ideal.
Backgrounds can refer to a number of things: props, panels, or a simple
painted wall can serve as a background to an object or display. These must
be subdued enough that they do not detract from the object on display,
but they should be complimentary. The specific position, arrangement,
and display of an object is important to consider. Height of the display
case, order in which objects are placed or hung, and the grouping of
certain objects are all major factors in how patrons interpret objects.
