Whirligig design for Playground Amstelpark
Posted 11 months ago and submitted by Dewy Venerius | Share link: http://illo.cc/95380

These are the first pictures of a big project I worked on: the design of a whirligig in Playground Amstelpark, located in Amsterdam (the Netherlands). Playground Amstelpark is a cosy, outdoor playground with a lot of attractions and playsets for children.

The concept for the whirligig was to make it look like a large oak tree. The tree is inhabited with all kind of animals. Small creatures such as insects and frogs crawl in the grass, while the forest animals have fun at the trunk. And if you look closely, you can spot birds and other animals hiding between the branches.

All the creatures which can be found in the tree are based on animals from Dutch nature. This way children will learn something about the Dutch flora & fauna during their visit.

The carousel’s target group is children of 4-12 years old.

You can view all the illustrations I made for this project in my Hireillo portfolio and on my website.
