When I started working for Taylor Studios a little over a year ago, I was excited to dive into to this new (to me) world of exhibit design. There was so much to learn and take in. I remember one of my first project meetings. We brainstormed different ideas for the gallery and different ideas for what the visitor experience might be. Towards the end of the meeting, I’m handed a list of the client’s existing taxidermy.
Now, to me, taxidermy has always been a part of my life. My dad is a hunter, so I’m familiar with mounted deer and trophy fish on the wall. What I’m not familiar with is some of the taxidermy that I sometimes see from clients. It’s not always the actual animal that amuses me, but the poses they are put in. Below is a quick example and a video of a pretty funny taxidermy commercial.
