A trivium is a point where three roads converge. Our team is led by 3 principals, each with a different set of skills, but there is one point where they all meet—at the intersection of story, technology, and experience. To us, really good media exhibits are the result of a contained collision of all three of these things.
Between the three principals, we have almost fifty years of experience designing, creating, and producing interactive exhibits!
Jill excels at creating opportunities where people can find emotional connections to the topic at hand—particularly art, architecture and design. As an interpretive strategist who specializes in media exhibits, she ensures the main message of the experience is kept in the forefront of the team’s mind and reflected in the exhibits. Furthermore, she is adept at identifying and seeking out new opportunities and partnerships for the Trivium team.
