  • More about me

  • Ganymede Design Group specializes in the conceptualization, development and design of interpretive environments such as those found in museums, galleries and cultural centers. Our work reflects the synergy of over 75 years combined professional experience in the fields of interpretive exhibit planning, gallery design, graphic design, education and project management… as well as individual creative work in several arts disciplines. Although Ganymede was born as an independent Exhibit Design entity in 1995, our professional relationships with one another stretch back to the 1980s.

    How Do We Work?
    All Ganymede collaborations are the product of a working partnership with our clients. Effective communication between team members is elemental. Each project begins by defining the client’s audience and giving thoughtful consideration to the project objectives, be they aesthetic, informational, emotional or some combination of these and other fundamental factors. Every exhibit and every interior should become a uniquely personal experience for the visitor. Our projects are culturally sensitive and user-friendly, and our focus is ALWAYS to create experiences that are elegant, intelligent, engaging and respectful of the individuals who will explore them.
