First World War in the Air

Large-scale digital exhibits for the Royal Air Force Museum

As part of the First World War exhibition at the Royal Air Force Museum in London, we created a quartet of large-scale digital exhibits to explain and bring to life the story of history’s first major airborne conflict.

With titles including Wonders of Flight and Portrait of a Battle, the exhibits use a wider range of materials to tell their stories. Wonders of Flight explores the unique and often overlooked role of air power during the First World War. It incorporates archive footage to show how aviation went from an enthusiasts hobby to a powerful military weapon. Meanwhile, Portrait of a Battle is an animated battle map which enables visitors to discover the varied roles First World War aircrafts played, from photographic reconnaissance and helping artillery to find their target to air combat and tactical bombing. We used illustrated 2d motion graphics, 3d animation and sound design to create an informative and atmospheric experience.
