Welcome to W19 Design – The home of affordable, bespoke interactive design

Specialists in hands-on interactive exhibits and exhibitions for museums and visitor centres.

W19 Design offer exhibit and interactive design from concept through to production. We can design and build bespoke interactives to perfectly fit your needs and budget. We can develop exhibits and interactives to a strict or loose brief and produce a high quality, robust, informative and engaging experience.

What we do

Our focus is on ‘hands-on’ and a wide range of interactivity is possible from simple to high-tech. If you can imagine it we will try our best to design it and make it real: Hand Cranks; Magnetic panels; Gears and pulleys; Touch screens; Touchless interaction; Pumping water; Augmented reality; Lasers; Graphic displays; Embedded PCs; Tracing tables; Wind and wave power; Sports technology; Illusions… and much, much more.

As well as designing and building complete interactive exhibits we can design, build and install technical components for your models –  Technical and Electrical

Whatever your exhibition, whether it is travelling or fixed, temporary or permanent, brand new or a refurbishment we can design the right interactive experience for you and your visitors.

Services offered

We can do as little or as much as you need and offer a personal service tailored to your needs, budgets and time-scales:

  • Exhibit and exhibition consultancy
  • Visualisations
  • Concept development and prototypes
  • Layouts and floor plans
  • Design development and refinement
  • Engineering drawings
  • Props for shows and demonstrations

We design with the end user in mind. The general public can be tough on interactives so we strive to make everything robust and safe but still engaging, accessible and easy to use. We can match the look and feel of your environment or create something new and exciting. Typical installation sites could be science centres, museums, hotel or business lobbies as well as visitor centres.
