Victoria Jones has spearheaded award-winning interactive projects at Bluecadet including installations, websites, and mobile apps.
Merging a passion for technology and museum exhibition design, Victoria has worked with such leading institutions as The Field Museum, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Victoria’s skillful project management, creative solutions, and attention to detail ensure that projects run smoothly and successfully, from concept through completion.
Since joining Bluecadet in 2010, Victoria has developed productive and longstanding collaborations with clients. She has produced all of Bluecadet’s projects with The Field Museum, including a touchscreen interactive for the renowned “Sue” the T. rex skeleton; the immersive Central Space projection, driven by Kinect motion sensors; and the Restoring Earth interactive kiosk stations and companion website, which invite visitors to curate a “mini-collection” of digital exhibition objects. Victoria draws from a broad range of experience in exhibition strategy and design, interactive media, and web/mobile development—enabling her to effectively liaise between Bluecadet’s clients and our team.
Victoria earned her M.F.A. from the University of the Arts in Museum Exhibition Planning and Design, focusing her thesis on the incorporation of technology into museum spaces. While pursuing her master’s degree, she was selected as the Von Hess Exhibition Department Fellow at The Walters Art Museum; she also worked in the Exhibition Department at the Penn Museum, launching a collaboration that has continued through her current role at Bluecadet. In 2014, she returned to the University of the Arts as a Lecturer in Media for Museum Communication, and she regularly speaks at colleges and conferences.
Raised in Michigan, Victoria credits her family with sparking an early interest in exhibition design. They often visited museums and historic sites, and she was fascinated by the idea that somebody was making the displays. She also developed an interest in technology and began learning HTML in her teens. She came to Philadelphia to attend Bryn Mawr College, where she graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Archaeology and Art History. She currently resides in Philadelphia with her husband and cat.
