Before the Big Ten project began, when you walked into the conference headquarters, you might not have known where you were. Today, it’s impossible not to get a sense of ‘wow’ and feel pride of the conference permeating throughout the space.

As part of a world-class design team, DI helped bring the Big Ten’s storied academic and athletic history to life through a collection of interactive exhibits showcasing players, coaches and moments dating back to 1896, the year the conference was founded. A major attraction is The Big 10 Theater which gives patrons a behind-the-scenes, immersive audio and video experience featuring notable accomplishments on and off the field of play.

What’s now called the Big Ten Experience has become a fan destination giving all generations an opportunity to engage in rich university traditions, while at the same time celebrating current achievements.

To see more about how DI brought the Big Ten story to life in an iconic way, visit the Big Ten project YouTube video.

Each year five NASCAR legends are inducted in the NASCAR Hall of Fame and enshrined in history forever. Bill Elliott, Fred Lorenzen, Wendell Scott, Joe Weatherly and Rex White make up the sixth class to be inducted to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, adding their name to a list of now 30 NASCAR Hall of Famers. The Class of 2015 was determined by votes cast by the Voting Panel, which included representatives from NASCAR, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, track owners from major facilities and historic short tracks, media members, manufacturer representatives, retired competitors (drivers, owners and crew chiefs), recognized industry leaders and a nationwide fan vote conducted through NASCAR.com – which counted for the 54th and final vote.

The Indian Motorcycle Company

Working closely with the GMR Marketing team of designers and project managers, EDE produced and delivered signage, branded graphics and lighting enhancements for the newest member of the Indian line: Dark Horse. The entire project was envisioned, produced and delivered in just one week. With a hands-on team, EDE arrived at the Kaiser Tiger, event destination, and installed all components for branding the space, completing all elements in time for the riders to arrive and see the new motorcycle, the “star” of the show. That same night the EDE team uninstalled all branding so that Kaiser Tiger could return to their normal ambiance and Dark Horse could be sent home.

DESIGN: GMR Marketing

At EDE, we’ve been helping clients bring exhibit ideas to life since 1979. We’ve helped them tell their stories, breathe new life into their brands, and make the seemingly impossible – possible.
