Signs and Banners for Zoos

Get more foot traffic to your zoo, aquarium, museum or botanical garden exhibit with beautiful fabric visual aides.

Studies have shown that zoo, aquarium, museum and botanic garden patrons are more likely to respond to images of the animals and exhibits they would like to see. This can also enhance a zoo or aquarium’s educational benefit to the public.

Banner Art Studio has a 30 year track record of successfully providing professional creative services and technical expertise to design beautiful way-finding fabric signage for your zoo, museum, aquarium or botanic garden exhibit.

We have developed colorful fabric banners and signage for:

  • Zoos
  • Museums
  • Hotels
  • Visitor attractions
  • Entertainment facilities
  • Hospitality centers
  • Hospitals & corporate
  • Retail industry-specific projects
  • Military & government

Our artwork is integrated into the cultural landscape of our clients’ site, and sensitive to the human interaction and guest/visitor participation of each space.

Did you know: 72% of visitors say a new exhibit for a new species would persuade them to visit a zoo or aquarium.

Our designs enrich the experiences of your guests because they’re built on research and insight.

We understand how and why people move through exhibits and attractions at zoos, museums and aquariums. From understanding and influencing guest behavior, to visual art in new ways, we’re always looking to go a step further. We know that it makes a difference in the lives of your guests.


“I was so thankful to be in communication with Mettje for this project. She asks the right questions, and helped me think through all of the issues related to both the interior mobile art and the outdoor installation. She knows what she’s doing, and her experience working with different architectural spaces and in different environments is invaluable.” – Jo Hohlbein, Creative Director, Indianapolis Zoo.
