High quality, well-planned interpretation is at the heart of engaging people with wildlife and heritage. We develop innovative solutions that are appropriate to your site and your visitors. Our solutions typically involve a range of media. We can call on a wide network of associates to deliver them.

Our interpretation work has a strong visitor focus. We see interpretation as changing people’s relationship with a place so tend to emphasise participation, dialogue and activity. 

For us, interpretation is not just telling, it’s sharing. It’s not just learning, it’s connecting.

Creating interpretation

We can take our interpretive plans through to installation (or publication, or performance). We regularly act as project managers and concept guardians, ensuring that the interpretation concepts remain clear and undiluted during design and production. We can:

  • build and supervise our own team of specialists
  • brief and help you work with designers successfully
  • help you select appropriate designers, manufacturers , performers (or whoever else you need)
  • supervise the work of designers on your behalf.

Bespoke interpretation solutions

We are not tied to in-house designers. We can therefore recommend whatever media we feel is most appropriate to a given site, story and set of audiences.

 Our solutions often include “soft media” such as person-to-person interpretation, events and community arts.

Supporting staff

We offer training and mentoring to help staff develop the skills and understanding to deliver new interpretation.
