Solway visitor brochure design, map design and interpretation

Discovering Solway with Lathwell designs

While the Solway Coast AONB is known for its stunning wetlands, it is also rich in built heritage.

It was this feature we were asked to help visitors and residents alike to 'discover', through our recent commission to produce a 24-page booklet that promotes the area's ancient churches, fortified houses and historical towns and villages.

This led to a really fun collaboration between Lathwell & Associates as project manager and designer, our long-time interpretation partner Anna Gray, and a local drone photographer. We especially enjoyed the opportunity to showcase our specialist service of bespoke map design - not to mention visiting the area to test the routes for ourselves!

Calvert Trust Exmoor photo shoot

Exhilarating Exmoor photo shoot

There's nothing like an adventure in the Great Outdoors...and we're incredibly fortunate to have one of the world's best wild playgrounds right on our doorstep: Exmoor National Park. This is home to Calvert Trust, a fantastic charity that enables people with physical, learning, behavioural and sensory disabilities to experience exciting, challenging and enjoyable outdoor activities - importantly, with their families and carers.

So it was with enormous excitement that we accepted the commission to design Calvert Trust Exmoor's 2018 holiday brochure.

Today, we got the project underway with a fun photo shoot, working with superb local photographer, Tim Pestridge. After a day of participating in abseiling, horse riding, bush craft, canoeing and cycling, we confess we are well and truly bushed - but, when work is this much fun, it certainly doesn't feel like work.

Ah: the designer's life for me!
