Penguins of the World

Fairman Studios was chosen among a number of other illustration studios to create original illustrations that are now be part of an interactive walk-through display for the Saint Louis Zoo Penguin and Puffin Coast Exhibit, which opened at the zoo in Spring 2003. This poster (which may be purchased at http://penguinsoftheworld.com) was created after the project was completed as an educational and promotional piece showing all 17 species of penguins.

The Saint Louis Zoo, Ten 8 Group, Peckham Guyton Albers & Viets, Inc. (PGAV), Pacific Studio and Fairman Studios teamed up to create the new Penguin and Puffin Coast Exhibit, which opened at the zoo in Spring 2003. Fairman Studios was chosen among a number of other illustration studios to create original illustrations that will be part of an interactive walk-through display within the exhibit.

Two large indoor exhibits, one for penguins and one for puffins, will depict a rugged naturalistic coastline complete with underwater viewing. The Lichtenstein Penguin Cove will be home to penguins from the Antarctic, and Puffin Bay will feature puffins, a beautiful oceanic bird from the North. This will be the first walk-through, sub-Antarctic penguin exhibit in North America. The indoor puffin exhibit will include about 25 tufted and 25 horned puffins, all from the Northern Hemisphere.
