Proun Design, founded in 1999, is a Boston-based design firm specializing in interpretive exhibits. At Proun Design, we strive to create exhibits that attract, engage, and educate. To that end, our projects blend 3D exhibits, objects, graphics, and media within the given space to create an integrated interpretive experience. We utilize the power of the object, the power of the image, the power of the voice, the power of place, and the power of the unexpected to draw visitors with varied interest levels into the story—to pique curiosity, challenge preconceived ideas, and provoke thought.
