An appealing interpretation design combines intriguing images with creative copywriting and a harmonious layout; these elements are key if you intend to spark the visitor's imagination and provide a truly memorable experience.

When it comes to exhibition design, it's all about grabbing people's attention and taking them on an exciting journey of enlightenment. With the right combination of eye-catching displays, compelling graphics and intriguing props, you can deliver a truly evocative and educational experience.
Through beautifully composed illustration you can reveal the unseen or even bring history to life; become absorbed in a gruesome medieval battle, learn about the heritage hidden beneath your feet or get a glimpse of the creatures that live below the water.
Designing and creating a map is now an art form in itself; why simply read a map when you can turn it into a unique and unforgettable navigational adventure? At FWDP, we can provide you with engaging and exciting creative mapping; you will be truly amazed by how a detailed and colourful illustrated map has the power to open the visitor's eyes to all that your site has to offer.
Thanks to the wonders of technology, digital media has the power to take learning to a whole new level; now the user has access to a wealth of additional information about your site at their fingertips. Platforms including video, audio and text allow you to bring a snippet of history to life or even spark the visitor's imagination and take them on an exciting educational journey. Just imagine watching the coronation procession whilst standing on a modern day street corner or listening to a soldier telling the story of a battle just lost; the possibilities are infinite.
Using our wealth of experience in delivering comprehensive interpretation and wayfinding schemes, we are able to apply our skills in developing realistic and imaginative interpretive signage strategies.
So if you have a creative project in mind, why not drop us an email and we can discuss your creative vision further.
Case Study: Highlighting the History of South Downs National Park
It's incredible to think that more than 3000 years ago Iron Age Celts dominated the land we now know as South Downs National Park. From ancient hill forts to prehistoric burial grounds and battlefields, people are surprised how much heritage is hidden beneath their feet. We designed interpretation panels for 4 archaeological sites in South Downs National Park. Our dynamic and detailed re-enactment illustrations immerse visitors in the scene; as they begin to understand more about the landscape's historic highlights, they feel like they've stepped back in time.
We were thrilled that the St Catherine's Hill interpretation panel was unveiled by Margaret Paren, Chief Executive of the South Downs National Park Authority, and Head of Conservation at Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, David Rumble.
Case Study: Verulamium Park's New Identity
Now buried beneath the modern city of South West St Albans, the ancient Roman capital Verulamium is a fascinating historical gem which St Albans City and District Council is keen to make more engaging and visitor friendly.
To revitalise the original and somewhat tired-looking signage of Verulamium Park, we designed a contemporary logo and signage scheme to reflect the history of the site and create a sense of place.
We are thrilled that the Countryside Management Service are pleased with the project. Their Project Officer, Jon Collins, told us: "We are very pleased with the creative service Fitzpatrick Woolmer have provided. They have brought some excellent ideas and innovation to the Verulamium Park signage project and we are confident that they will help us make the scheme a huge success."
We are delighted that our identity scheme has now reached phase two as we begin producing the signage for Verulamium Park.
Case Study: Scarborough Council Education Packs
Dean Road and Manor Road Cemetery in Scarborough is home to a stunning Secret Garden, abundant with wildlife and flora as well as dozens of gravestones and ancient statues.
Scarborough Council was keen for youngsters to learn about this historic site, so as part of the Heritage Lottery funded Secret Garden Project we produced an education pack which married creative, contemporary design with slick presentation.
We were thrilled that the children of Gladstone Junior School enjoyed using our education pack so much. From spotting war graves and designing posters, to tree measuring and identifying leaves, the 20-page pack is loaded with interactive activities for youngsters to enjoy.
Deputy Head of Barrowcliff School, Paul Johnson, was delighted with the education packs. He told The Scarborough News: “This is one of the best education packs I have seen during my teaching career, well put together with open questions and good illustrations.”
