I’m really lucky that I get asked to be involved in interpretation projects. This is where information about a place, such as a beauty spot, or heritage site is explained easily and quickly with words and pictures.
This might take the form of panels, guides, leaflets, or all of these. They usually incorporate a map, which I draw up and quite often some illustrations too.
Clients usually come to me with a whole host of research they have done on the topic, and don’t know where to start. I love sifting through it all, and picking out the ‘nuggets’ of information to illustrate that tells the story in an interesting and accessible way. It’s great fun and I always learn something too.
Here you see a panel design for a woodland area, that shows some statistics, a site plan and an educational element in the form of a leaf identifier, along with some examples of other interpretation projects.
