Dorchester Town Council

How can you combine print and digital to great effect in a town trail? This was the question with which we helped our local council, in developing a trail interpreting the history of Dorchester, county town of Dorset.

We designed many different interpretation panels using illustration, archive photography and QR codes that link to web pages with more information, audio, more photographs and video.

In 2018 we completed a Poppy Trail of seven panels to commemorate the centenary of the end of WWI. Prior to that we had designed almost 20 other panels for a town trail, with the wonderful illustrated Dora the Dormouse leading the way.

In 2021 we also designed the Council’s Heritage and Tourism Strategy document, showing their plans and ambition for the future.
