Corey Timpson is an active collaborator and thought leader in the experience design and digital media discourses within the museum and cultural industries.
As Vice President, Exhibition, Research, and Design, at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) Corey was responsible for the direction and oversight of all exhibition programs, research and curation, design and production across all media, digital platforms, and all collections-based initiatives.
As the project director for the design-build of the CMHR, his focus was on interpreting difficult knowledge and presenting it through a multi-sensory, transmedia storytelling approach. Corey also championed the creation of the museum’s internationally recognized inclusive design and accessibility practices.
Prior to his role at the Human Rights Museum, Corey led the design and architecture teams, as well as the Virtual Museum Labs Program, at the Canadian Heritage Information Network, working on projects of digital innovation with a large number of cultural institutions nationally and internationally.
Corey’s primary focus is to facilitate interactive and dialogic experiences between and among audiences (on-site and online) through mixed-media, digital technology, and immersive environmental design.
Whether working for museums and culture, sports and entertainment, healthcare, or commercial clients, Corey places a strict attention on rich experience design, built upon sustainable and inclusive interaction and data models. His design leadership has accounted for over 30 international awards in the fields of environmental, exhibition, and graphic design, digital and interactive media, digital systems, film and linear media, and universal design.
