As part of my job as assistant-curator at the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities, I am working to prepare an exhibition on Doggerland (opening spring 2021) – a prehistoric landscape that currently lies submerged beneath the North Sea (I will put up a blog post on this soon). The exhibition is part of a larger research project, including lots of activities for the public such as find identification days and public lectures (read more on this here).

Given my experience running social media channels for other companies and groups, I was charged with setting up a social media project that would feature the preparations for the Doggerland exhibition, research on Doggerland and to share Doggerland finds done by avid amateur-archeologists along parts of the Dutch coastline.

I designed a bold graphic visual identity and set up a strategy geared towards connecting existing Doggerland enthusiasts as well as interest those as of yet unfamiliar with this archeological treasure trove lying beneath the North Sea.
