Acorn Heritage Services
works to create innovative and creative graphic interfaces. Although many
nonprofit organizations represent themselves as conservative organizations,
AHS is committed to showing that these organizations can be well established
and trusted but still have an edge that today's society demands in its
graphical interfaces. All of our work is done on Macintosh computers using
Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Macromedia Dreamweaver. We would
be thrilled to work with your organization to show you what we could do
to provide detailed, innovative design options.
We strive to create informative exhibits for local and small museums. We will design the site routing, the overall image, and exhibit panels. We lay out all of the text and images to create a striking and informative program that your visitors will rave about. We take into account the needs of visitor movement along with the need for effective communication. We will also incorporate technology, such as audio and web based, into the program to keep your visitors coming back for more.
Interpretive Panel Design
We have taken the goals of the National Park Service to create effective wayside planels and informative in-town sidewalk panels. We can design panels that are mounted on buildings, panels that are stand alone, or we can design panels that correspond to the educational programs and brochures your organization has developed (See our services for educational programs.) These panels will not only allow your organization to expand its educational reach, but provide innovative stopping points within a community.
Web Design / Graphic Design / Database Design
We have nearly twenty years of experience with computers and technology. We have created several websites, including those for Boston Harborfest.com, the Vernacular Architecture Forum, the American Association for History and Computing and the Tennessee Preservation Trust. In the past we have done sites for the Rutherford County Archives, MTSU's Center for Historic Preservation, The Public History Program at MTSU, Roger Williams University's Historic Preservation Program, and the Samuel Huntington Homestead. Our experience with graphic design and computer technologies allows us to provide the information AND the graphic interface. We can develop print and online documents. We can also develop basic membership or fundraising databases. We have developed databases for historic surveys. Finally we can also work to develop digital video and online audio programs (podcasts).
