By the time the second hand on your wristwatch has circled its dial, a child will have died of malaria. And by the time those minutes have added up to a year; nearly 660,000 people - most of them African children - will have died from the disease.
Malaria has been a health problem for much of human history, but recent progress in scaling up the use of bed-nets and anti-malarial treatments has seen annual deaths from malaria fall. And in clinical trials, fresh ripples of excitement are emerging among normally restrained and cautious scientists. In 2012 Beattie Communication as part of their work with Glaxo Smith Kline were involved in developing a travelling exhibition to raise awareness of Malaria and its causes.
Paragon Creative worked with Beattie Communication to help to communicate the important health messages about Malaria through a pop up, highly interactive travelling exhibition.
We created setworks, graphic design and production, a ‘swat the mosquito’ interactive, an interactive ‘hot spots’ globe and models of over-sized mosquitoes. The whole exhibition was housed in a pop up inflatable dome which created a versatile environment for temporary exhibitions.
