The City of London, has long shared a vision with the local community to improve awareness of the rich history, cultural significance and wildlife value of the open space. Bearing this in mind, as well as a broader ongoing project to improve site facilities, and it became clear communication of site information would need to be enhanced.
With this in mind and in conjunction with project partners, The Friends of Farthing Downs and the Old Surrey Downs Project, they began investigating potential providers. Keen to work with a company able to offer a full service from research and design through to manufacture, Fitzpatrick Woolmer were appointed.
Fitzpatrick Woolmer’s solution involved a suite of 5 A1 semi-seasoned oak Musketeer™ lectern displays, in addition to a semi-seasoned oak ladder sign. Each lectern would provide interpretation about one of the key aspects of the site e.g. its rich heritage, its nature and wildlife and links to the City of London. From researching to copywriting, illustration and hand-drawn watercolour illustrative mapping, Fitzpatrick Woolmer developed the displays from scratch, to create a range of engaging and informative high quality oak displays.
