Illustrated Mindfulness Map of Waddesdon Manor NT
One of my most recent commissions was to design a Mindfulness map of Waddesdon Manor NT, Buckinghamshire which is managed by the Rothschild Foundation, on behalf of the National Trust. The concept of the map was to guide visitors through all the peaceful and thoughtful areas of the manor gardens in an attractive and engaging way. The final map was very well received and is now available to buy at Waddesdon Manor as a folding maplet.
"Going into this project we wanted to present Waddesdon Manor's exceptional gardens in a way they may not have been experienced before - encouraging a mindful visit by spotlighting restorative and inspiring aspects of the grounds. Bek worked to this brief brilliantly, capturing the gardens and some of its lesser known artworks and peaceful spots perfectly. Bek has been a pleasure to work with, from her enthusiasm for Waddesdon as we wandered the grounds together to her extreme attention for detail that has meant that not only is the map a beautiful piece of art in its own right, it also captures the serene atmosphere that can be enjoyed on a wander around Waddesdon. We are sure that our visitors will enjoy this exquisite map as much as we have loved working with Bek to create it."
