Sourcelab is an interactive design firm with high creative standards and technical mastery. We convert complex sets of information into clear, meaningful interactive pieces that inspire and engage. Our team provides complete project development including content management, technical engineering, graphic and experience design.

Interpretive Exhibit Design
We think of an exhibit as an experience that needs to be designed with what we call its preview, view and review in mind. As such, we analyze and digest all content to create holistically engaging design that help viewers across generations both understand and relate to the exhibit.

Visual Storytelling
An image is worth 1000 words would be a clear example of how compelling, intelligent metaphors, or the mere presentation of visual material can help explain concepts, historical data, facts and ideas. Beyond just an image, the dynamic expression of ideas in time can further convey a diverse range of information and make a story more cohesive and compelling. We utilize the most up-to-date technologies to infuse movement, motion and energy into our pieces whenever appropriate.

Interface
Interface design for web, kiosks and mobile devices. Every medium has different needs for usability, accessibility, and patterns of use. We employ rigorous usability testing to ensure that our interfaces are easy to comprehend and augment, rather than interfere with, the overall user experience.
