Blickling Hall National Trust Map

In late 2014 I was approached by National Trust Blickling Hall to create a new welcome map for their estate. The brief was depict all of their estate as a large watercolour illustration to be used on their welcome board signage and in their new visitor leaflet. It had to clearly show the land belonging to the National Trust, along with their holiday cottages, walks and cycle routes for visitors to follow.

Fiona came highly recommended by one of my National Trust colleagues, who had been working with her for some time on various design projects.  Initially, I asked Fiona to design a new map for our car park that was pleasing to the eye, but also functional enough to be used for orientation around the estate.  She took the brief and worked it up over several stages, checking with me every step of the way to make sure she was delivering what I needed. Since then, Fiona has also breathed new life into the design of our Welcome Leaflet.  I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again – she strives to make the process as effortless as possible for the client, and is very easy to work with.
