Crickhowell Primary School – Pond Interpretation Board

I was recently commissioned to design and illustrate (and write the English language copy for) an interpretation board to stand beside the pond at Crickhowell Primary School, Mid Wales. The board had to be eye catching whilst also containing lots of information on pond life and pond dipping in both English and Welsh. Although it’s quite a departure from my usual style, I had a blast creating the board, it took me back to my childhood when I used to put together my own little nature books! I would love to do more nature illustrations, and intend to pursue this direction a little more in the future.
