Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum/Indianapolis International Airport Window Display
In 2021, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum approached me with a project to update and create window graphics that would be on display at the Indianapolis International Airport on both Concourse A & B as passengers would arrive from their flights. The scale was to be quite larger than my usual projects but the subject matter I was quite familiar with. Anything relating to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Indy 500, or historically related to either was something I have spent years immersing myself in.
As with any large project, plenty of research was needed, photos, notes, and measurements all would be invaluable for this design.
The images supplied allowed me to better visualize both the space I had to work with as well as the backdrop of the planes. The challenging portion of this project was determining the placement of the overall graphics in relation to the window dividers. The imagery was selected from the museum archives and spanned the period from Ray Harroun’s 1911 Indy 500 victory up thru the 2021 Indy 500 winner, Helio Castroneves. Call-outs to each were added to promote the museum’s social media presence. I generated two QR codes, one to direct folks to the IMS ticket site and the second to connect them with directions to the museum from the Indianapolis International airport.
