Vindolanda — The Wooden Underworld

Vindolanda Trust logo

We were approached by Vindolanda to assist in preparing a pitch to secure funding for a proposed extension to house a new museum and activity centre to be called the Wooden Underworld, a showcase for various wooden artefacts excavated on-site.

The project was green-lighted, necessitating a series of presentations and progress reports, producing a wide range of graphic materials and display elements, build and project management… not to mention bringing the project to fruition on time and well within budget.

Our initial proposal to the Vindolanda Trust for development of a strategy and concept design for the Museum Extensions.

An interim design stage document was produced to establish actual graphics, fittings and finishes.
