Welcome to Darwin!Create your own digital exhibits and signage. No programming required.
What is Darwin?
Darwin runs on Windows, Macintosh, and iOS devices; we can also use it to create exhibits for Android devices.
How does it all work?
Creating your digital exhibits with Darwin is a simple, repeatable process.
Create and edit
Design, prototype and build your new digital exhibit or app using Darwin Creator, which runs on PC or Mac.
If you can build a slideshow, you can use Darwin.
Export and upload
Export your exhibit to a USB key, ready to install on your in-gallery computer – or upload to our temporary online storage
Install and run
Copy your exhibit to a public-facing Mac, PC or download to an iOS device running the Darwin Player app. It’s quick and easy – then you set Darwin to auto-play and reveal it to the public!
How easy is Darwin to use?
Very! If you can use PowerpointTM or KeynoteTM then Darwin will be pretty straightforward. Create pages and popups, add content and links between them – from a simple interactive to a complicated iPad tour, it’s all possible with Darwin.
Create animated, interactive digital exhibits
Darwin comes with a wide range of built in features, like giant image exploration, image galleries, audio players and more.
It also has built in animation facilities, which means you can create immersive and dynamic pages quickly and easily.
Specifying how your pages ‘build up’ their content makes each Darwin exhibit look bespoke and hand made, not generated from a template.
Easy to use editor
Build up your exhibit one page at a time, adding text, images, video, hotspots, buttons, shapes and more. Darwin has a easy-to-use page editor in which you lay out your pages and popups exactly how you want.
Link between pages, set transitions (like dissolve, wipe or flip) add a timeout sequence, play audio files and much much more!
Build the exhibit on your Windows or Macintosh desktop computer and preview it to check you are happy with it. Then export it to use on an in-gallery computer, or upload it to our temporary storage, ready to install on an iOS device.
With Darwin we have created a wide range of digital tours and exhibits. It is at the heart of our digital offering.Anna Bright
