Profile Review

Morris Associates is an internationally recognised award winning design practice. It was established in 1987 by Colin Morris with the support of Lord Palumbo and guidance of Peter Carter to provide expertise in museum design and exhibition design for creative and enlightening exhibits in the areas of art, history and science. Since then the company has steadily expanded its disciplines and now offers clients a complete design service including planning, feasibility studies, research and interpretation, interior design, project management and graphic design for permanent, temporary and travelling exhibits.

The result of this business collaboration was a substantial investment in well-equipped design studios and an experienced team of designers and support services. From this secure foundation, Morris Associates provides a broad spectrum of design, management, and technical capabilities, which together allow the company to create and test innovative designs in-house in 2D & 3D, and to undertake any individual element of a project from the feasibility and concept design stage, through manufacture to its installation and completion.

The company remains totally focused on maintaining its reputation for high quality in each discipline. This also allows us to devote our enthusiasm and expertise to develop the most appropriate and creative solutions in conjunction with a brief and provide close attention to each individual client and their projects specific requirements. In addition, to complement its abilities, close team-focused relationships have been forged with other highly respected professionals, which allows us to undertake architecture, art handling, cost control, fabrication, fit-out, installation, interactive technology, lighting design, object mounting and specialised research and interpretation as well as shipping under one organisation.

Morris Associates has undertaken commissions for many recognised museums, galleries, visitor centres as well as private companies and individuals. As you will see, the international clients have provided a diverse range of projects, enabling the continuous development of new ideas in museum design and techniques as well as the establishment of somewhat smaller satellite studios.
