WHAT WE DO

We are a full service design consultancy committed to extraordinary exhibitions, interpretive environments and commercial installations.

PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS

VISITOR INTERPRETIVE CENTRES

COMMERCIAL EXHIBITIONS AND TRAVELLING DISPLAYS

Our permanent installations reflect our understanding of museological principals and requirements. We believe in the need to protect precious objects whilst still attending to the needs of wide ranging audiences.

Our primary concern is for the visitor experience. We will use whatever means available to engage with and communicate to the audience.

With a forty year relationship with Mercedes Benz, and a similar one with Austrade we understand the commercial exhibition environment – timeframes, commercial imperatives, re-usability and more come into play.

RETAIL AND COMMERCIAL INSTALLATIONS

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION

MULTIMEDIA

We bring that something extra to retail and commercial installations – we make the environment talk.

With age comes a need for upgrades; we can make the renewal process seamless.

We use an array of new technologies to take audiences beyond the walls of the space by creating immersive environments and interactive engagement.

ABOUT

Acumen Design is one of Australia’s most experienced and creative interpretive design companies.

 

What we bring to the table is a mix of creative and innovative design and an innate understanding of how it enhances your communication objectives.

 

We don’t design simply for design’s sake – our difference is that our design supports the stories you want to tell.

 

For institutions, we create museum spaces, and tourist and visitor centres.  For our corporate clients we design marketing environments – exhibitions, expos, marketing suites, trade shows, and retail spaces.

 

We take complex stories and bring them to life through architectural, environmental and graphic design using objects, images, interactive and multi-media installations to engage and captivate your audiences.

 

As a creative hub and in collaboration with the client, Acumen draws together teams of specialists as and when needed.  These are the best people in the business – graphic designers, audio visual producers, writers, lighting designers, special effects specialists, fabricators, construction crews, etc. These teams are dedicated to delivering exceptional results for our clients.
