October 2016. Qualia is working with the National Railway Museum, York, to design the activity spaces for its Future Engineers Project. The project was conceived as part of the Museum’s STEM outreach programme of learning events with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and maths.
Qualia is working very closely with the museum's in-house graphic design manager, Chris Mossop, to get the results exactly right. Richard Mathers from Qualia is creating seamless 3D environments that match the project's established visual identity as envisioned by Chris and his team at NRM.
The sketch (right) shows how Qualia's clear drawn information will facilitate an efficient and speedy build process.
September 2016. Qualia has been hired alongside Paragon Creative to produce a series of new interpretive installations that tell the story of sweet and confectionery manufacturing in York.

It will soon be possible to rediscover some of the the old favourites that were first created in York.
