The Story Of An American Icon

Mount Vernon

Preserving the past means educating the future. The Story of an American Icon takes viewers on a journey through the historical items that made Mount Vernon, and the women who helped preserve George Washington’s legacy. From the president’s dress sword to a spearhead from indigenous people, there is a grand history to share. 

We created a visual style that highlights the many layers of history the Mount Vernon Ladies Association helped uncover. Pushing the boundaries of horizontal timelines, we created an educational video for the ongoing exhibit at the Mount Vernon estate.
