The Museum at Eldridge Street is housed in the Eldridge Street Synagogue, a magnificent National Historic Landmark on the Lower East Side that has been meticulously restored. The Museum wanted to develop a timeline that uses historic photographs and the stories of three American families to construct a timeline of the rise, fall, and reemergence of the community of Jews in Harbin, China in the first half of the twentieth century.
Beginning with a 25-page Word table provided by the curator, I developed and executed a system of fonts, colors, and graphs to make this large quantity of information attractive and easily digestible.
Johanna Goldfeld to us came highly recommended by Mark Podwal, an artist for whom she designed an exhibition.Â I was so pleased with her work that we have used her for four exhibitions. Sheâ€™s created graphic identities, designed text panels and labels, and determined complex sizing and arranging of photographs.Â She is a team player in the best sense:Â taking direction, providing a creative response, responding to requests for change, and finally getting it all into production.Â Iâ€™ll definitely be calling her for our next show, too.
