Here are some brief case studies to our landscape interpretation, including signage, interpretation panels, way finding, illustration and graphic design.
We have been working with Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare for a few years on their interpretation and signage. This is a wonderful mix of landscape, interpretation and graphics. During this time we have created some innovative solutions that include wooden signage, indoor graphics, wayfinding and sculptural work.
Horden Denes is an area of England on the Durham coast. It was once a colliery here and the beach was (and still is) covered in coal. But since the closure of the mines the coast is regenerating and wildlife that was sitting below the surface is emerging and flourishing. The local community are justly proud of this area and we worked with the community on the sculptural and interpretative outputs for the site. These included: Robust and green oak totem signage, Cor-ten Steel interpretative features and sculptural seating and picnic area.
We have produced a number of panels in bronze cast. This material is ideal in outdoor situations and over time the bronze seems to get better and better. It is possible to get a high degree of detail and produces a wonderfully tactile surface.
We have produced a suite of panels for a Dementia Garden in Motherwell that included zinc etched discs and an audio post.
