Family Discovery Trail, National Trust in Bath
“We have worked with Lisa at the National Trust Bath Skyline property over the last 2 years on several projects and she has helped us to deliver some extremely high quality interpretation that has proved very popular with our visitors. We have been very impressed with how completely she has immersed herself in the projects, helping to clarify the initial brief and coming up with detailed, well thought out and highly creative proposals.
With our Family Discovery Trail the aim was to promote our child friendly installations to a family audience. Not only did we develop stunning artwork for a leaflet and additional downloadable sheets, but she helped us to develop a new self-led trail through the countryside that entices families to explore the adjacent countryside with regular child-friendly engaging activities, while also combining existing way-marking to reduce countryside clutter. “

Welcome area design and visualisation, Leigh Woods, National Trust Bristol
“At the Leigh Woods National Nature Reserve in Bristol Lisa helped us to deliver an extremely high quality visual interpretation of how a complex project could look when finished, working to very tight deadlines.”

Walk to the View, National Trust in Bath
“With our Walk to the View project in Bath Lisa helped us to develop an entirely new route connecting the city with the nearby countryside to appeal equally to both ramblers and active tourists alike. Her work researching a range of possible story options allowed to us deliver a final walk that had been meticulously thought through and a leaflet with very high production values which has been extremely popular and very well received.
As well as being enjoyable to work with, Lisa’s approach is highly professional: her organisational skills are excellent and she has always been very clear on both project costs and timescales, helping to set project goals and deadlines and keep a tight control on expenditure. She has always been very responsive whenever project and budget updates have been needed.”

“A stunning waterfall and interesting industrial heritage site, this is particularly well designed for children. The child’s pack given on entry includes a brass rubbing kit to use on various images around the site and smell boxes to bring the past to life.”

“When it is easy for a national trust site to be a bit ‘snooty’ this one was fantastic! Took little one and the dog and both received the warmest of welcomes from every member of staff!
The little one got an explorer pack and she loved going round with her magnifying glass and taking rubbings on the plaques provided.
I enjoyed the aroma pots that were included and helped bring history to another level! Brilliant!”

Ynys Newydd Nature Trail, Clyne, Swansea
“Lisa was the creative force behind the Ynys Newydd trail at Clyne Valley Country Park where she developed an informative, interactive, educational and above all fun trail for all the family to enjoy. She worked well with local schools, community groups and artists and the trail really enhances the site. ”
