Army Museum Halifax Citadel / WW1 Exhibition
The Road to Vimy and Beyond, 1914–1918

Located in the Cavalier Building of Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, the Army Museum has fascinated and inspired thousands visitors with an extensive collection of Haligonian, Nova Scotian, and Canadian militaria.
In 2014 the Museum is featuring a brand new exhibit marking the First World War Centennial. This exhibit commemorates the service and sacrifice of the soldiers in the First World War, and in particular, highlights the stories of the soldiers from Nova Scotia. The central piece of this highly moving exhibition is a powerful re-creation of the Vimy Memorial.

The permanent exhibition, The Road to Vimy Ridge and Beyond, 1914–1918, features a complete scale model of the famous Vimy Memorial, a massive and emotionally powerful monument to the sacrifice of Canadians who fought and died in the First World War. 
The challenge behind creating the exhibition logo was to make English and French version visually balanced and equal.
The "ribbon" element will later become an important graphic motif in the new Army Museum logo.
"The graphic design and installation done in the production of our First World War Centennial Exhibition has yielded world class exhibit spaces, which has resulted in a significant increase in visitation. Form:Media understood our needs and vision for the exhibition quickly and were the best partners any institution could hope for."
— Ken Hynes, the Army Museum Curator
We designed an interactive touchscreen, mounted within a re-creation of a military equipment crate, allowing museum visitors to explore key WWI battles involving Canadian soldiers.
The popular conception of WWI is of battles that achieved little, but while the front lines may not have moved dramatically, each battle had innovations and outcomes that shaped the course of the war.
The kiosk covers pivotal battles of WWI involving Canadian forces, most notably Vimy Ridge. Form:Media has been steadily adding battle information to the kiosk as we approach the 100th anniversary of the conflicts.
