Malaria Travelling Exhibition

ZSL London Zoo


By the time the second hand on your wristwatch has circled its dial, a child will have died of malaria. And by the time those minutes have added up to a year; nearly 660,000 people - most of them African children - will have died from the disease.

Malaria has been a health problem for much of human history, but recent progress in scaling up the use of bed-nets and anti-malarial treatments has seen annual deaths from malaria fall. And in clinical trials, fresh ripples of excitement are emerging among normally restrained and cautious scientists. In 2012 Beattie Communication as part of their work with Glaxo Smith Kline were involved in developing a travelling exhibition to raise awareness of Malaria and its causes. 


Paragon Creative worked with Beattie Communication to help to communicate the important health messages about Malaria through a pop up, highly interactive travelling exhibition. 

We created setworks, graphic design and production, a ‘swat the mosquito’ interactive, an interactive ‘hot spots’ globe and models of over-sized mosquitoes. The whole exhibition was housed in a pop up inflatable dome which created a versatile environment for temporary exhibitions.

STAFF FOCUS: Tim DeCoste, Interactives Workshop Manager

Q: Name?
A: Tim DeCoste but they call me moose now there’s four Tims.

Q: What and where did you study?
A: Seaquam secondary school in my motherland of Canada. University didn’t seem challenging enough so I went to major in waterparks abroad.

Q: How long have you worked at Paragon Creative?
A: 3 years this month.

Q: What development / training have you undertaken since joining the team?
A: IOSH managing safely and the ever-important manual handling and fire warden training. And of course the sage mentoring of Jon Myers (Operations Director) and Chris Nuttall (Technical Director).

Q: Favourite Project to work on and why?
A: Dig It Dubai Springs. It was an achievable project that has resulted in a great success which is always a boost knowing the work our department put in to it, I’m sure others did OK as well. I also got to be involved in the installation, something I don’t often get to be a part of, luckily I still have my old work boots so I almost blended in seamlessly if not for my eloquent speaking and perfect hair.

Q: What do you like about working at Paragon?
A: Everyday poses a new challenge. It’s also close to home so that’s nice.

Q: Dream project to work on?
A: If we could do something ice hockey or maple syrup based I’d be very much in my comfort zone.

Q: What does your department do?
A: Builds big toys!
