CHALLENGE

An 8-metre bespoke wall-mounted timeline

Moog Aircraft Group wanted to visualise their key achievements over the last 65 years and asked Oyster to design a bespoke 8-metre wall-mounted timeline to be displayed in their head office which was inspired by a similar timeline Oyster had produced for sister company Moog Controls Group.

With their pioneering technology, Moog Aircraft is now one of the largest manufacturers of aerospace components across the globe. An example of one of their many achievements is the design and manufacture of actuators for the Apollo Saturn V rocket which took Neil Armstrong to the moon!

SOLUTION

We designed a bespoke wall-mounted timeline using a vibrant blue sky background with hints of cloud to create an attractive environment for the main information and product photography

We held an initial briefing with the client to discuss what items they wanted to feature on the timeline. Moog wanted to include all the major historic events, products and aircraft and rockets which were fitted with Moog products between 1950-2019. Once the content had been agreed, our graphic design team got to work.

We designed the bespoke wall-mounted timeline using a blue sky background with hints of cloud running throughout to create an attractive environment for the main information and product photography. We researched and sourced over 90 images – including a range of actuators, servo valves and flight controls – as well as over 40 supporting images of aircraft, events and historic reference. The images were each meticulously cut out and organised with the relevant copy in chronological order.

To facilitate easy installation, we printed the timeline in sections on 5mm Foamex panels which gave Moog the option to expand it in the future.

RESULT

A stunning wall-mounted display that celebrates Moog Aircraft Group’s key milestones, products and achievements in a visually impactful way

The final result is a stunning, 8-metre wall-mounted display that celebrates Moog Aircraft Group’s key milestones, products and achievements in a visually impactful way. The client was so pleased with the final results that they commissioned us to produce a handout of the timeline to give to customers.
