Gordon Ryan is a Partner and Senior Designer at the Expology Design Studio. Expology started in the mid-1980’s as a business Experience Design branch in the global PR company Burson-Marsteller. They thrived as storytellers in the high-level commercial sector, but expanded into the area of museums, exhibitions and visitor centres in the late 90’s. Since 1998 Expology became independent, and has led the nordic market for museums, visitor centres and brand communication.
Gordon Ryan talked about what it meant to “integrate technology” into a museum, about Expology design studio work over the past 18 years – and what they have learned about the development of exhibitions and the use of “appropriate” technology.
