“Bluecadet has been our integral partner since the first day of the project, guiding us through research and discovery to define, conceptualize, and develop our vision.”
– James J. Cuorato, President and CEO, Independence Visitor Center Corporation
Visitor Journey Mapping
Understanding the arc of the visitor experience on-site and off-site, identifying opportunities and pain points and turning them into memorable moments.
Spatial & Interpretive Planning
Developing various ways the brand and content manifest themselves through architecture, exhibits, environmental graphics, signage, and media.
Prototyping & User Testing
Building and testing ideas. Is the experience fun? Is it sustainable? Can it hold up to thousands of kids pounding on it? We answer these questions early.
Capturing the visual impact to build excitement, creating tools to reach consensus, and supporting your fundraising efforts.
Evaluating the importance and urgency as well as the investment and potential impact on your organization.
What can you expect?
A collaborative experience based on onsite observation, stakeholder meetings, visitor analysis, workshops, and a review of current assets and information.
What are the end deliverables?
A series of suggestions both short and long term, visualizations or prototypes, and an implementation plan with rough order-of-magnitude budgets.
When is the right time?
Ideally, in advance of a building campaign, new exhibit, or institutional re-envisioning. Because they are rooted in delivering impact while considering investment there's really no bad time.
How long does it take?
Depending on the end deliverables and stakeholder sign-off, we suggest anywhere from 2-4 months from kick-off through delivery of the final report.
What will the project team look like?
Your team will be made up of a Strategist, Producer, Spatial Designer, Designer, Tech Director, and Content Strategist.
How is this different than an Architectural Master Plan?
Where Master Plans focus on large scale, long-term building changes an EMP focuses on a phased plan of improving the visitor experience immediately and over time.
