New Visitor Maps for Port Lympne Reserve
4th May, 2016
I'm very happy to announce that the new visitor maps I've designed for Port Lympne Reserve in Kent are being put to good use.
I was first commissioned by the Aspinall Foundation who own Port Lympne Wildlife Reserve in Kent last year to design an illustrated map of the reserve to be used both on A4 sized maps handed out to visitors as they arrive as well as on new signage throughout the wildlife reserve. There are even future plans to use the maps as part of the upcoming Port Lympne App.
As the primary use for the map is for visitor navigation it had to be both geographically accurate and to scale as well as being easy to understand and aesthetically pleasing.
As part of my research I spent a fantastic day down in Kent at Port Lympne being driven around the reserve, taking lots of pictures and getting a real feel for the landscape, the animals, the wonderful accommodation on offer and the valuable work done there - I can highly recommend it as a great day out - my children were very jealous and I even got some good photos of one of my favourite animals - the tapir.
