I recently designed artwork for the Spectacle Trail activity at Museum of Norwich for the October Half Term, celebrating the centenary of Dipple & Conway opticians.
There were numerous glasses hidden around the museum and using the trail booklet as you walk through the museum, the aim was for visitors to match stickers to the objects.
I really enjoyed working with the museum staff and taking photographs of museum objects for use in the trail artwork and I loved putting it all together to design the artwork.
I was part of the design team back in 2012 when the museum had a complete overhaul and it was great being back and visiting all the different galleries - I especially love the Pharmacy, my Mum grew up in a Pharmacy in Scotland and has her own collection of bottles!
I've recently designed the graphics for a NEW special exhibition at Lynn Museum, called Little Lives. The exhibition takes a look at stories of childhood over the last two centuries and includes fascinating objects from the museum collections along with photographs showing the changing experience of childhood. From stories about Victorian dolls houses to the Nineties tamogotchi there's so much change for how children have grown up in the local area.
I really enjoyed designing the graphics and helping to bring the exhibition to life, it's always great to work with the team at Lynn Museum.
The museum is FREE is visit through October to March 2017 so make the most of it and take a tour, they're open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm and you can find the museum next to the Bus Station in King's Lynn, Norfolk.
Be sure to include the hashtag #LittleLives if you're sharing on social media!
Last month I had a walk around St Nicholas' Chapel in King's Lynn, Norfolk. I'd been interested in visiting this local treasure since the restoration work was carried out by The Churches Conservation Trust in 2015 and it was great to see the place looking so grand....
