"Metro Design Group recently completed two extensive contracts with the Royal Alberta Museum providing illustration work for the new Natural History and Human History suites of galleries.
We worked closely with Creative Director/Illustrator, Doug Driediger, as he produced a wide range of beautiful watercolour illustrations. Projects ranged in scale and complexity from delicate specimen identification panel illustrations and engaging story panel imagery to large mural recreations of Alberta’s First Nations working and living on the land 10,000 years ago. Doug's work is elegant, sophisticated, welcoming and sensitive to museum visitor’s culture connections—something we strive for in telling Alberta’s stories."
