Colour at the Ontario Science Centre
BY ELGIN CLECKLEY
@ VOL 32
ON MAY 06, 2014
Colour at the Ontario Science is an integral part of our vision since our opening in 1969. From the three hues in our iconic logo, to use in defining architecture and way finding, colour assists 1 million visitors a year setting the stage for interactives and copy panels in our halls. Colour changes in response to our needs, but also helps define interactions, resolve questions and enhance the visitor experience. Elgin Cleckley, Senior Exhibit Designer of the Science Centre, takes a quick tour of the Ontario Science Centre discussing the colour histories of the past and how they have evolved into the colour language we use today.
