Wye Valley Walk Information Panels

Client > Wye Valley AONB

We designed and printed 5 outdoor site information panels for the Wye Valley Walk project. The panels incorporated the branding we had created previously for the Overlooking the Wye Scheme but introduced a new colour-way to differentiate this project.

We introduced sample illustrations of fish on an early design mock up to highlight the riverside walks. Our client really liked this but it was important to our client that the fish were indigenous to the River Wye. our solution to this was to produce a unique set of fish illustrations based on photographs of fish found in the River Wye.

Background information > The Wye Valley Walk is a 136 mile (218km) trail that takes 12 days to complete. The route starts (or ends) at the marker stones at Chepstow Castle or Rhyd-y-benwch car park, Hafren Forest. The landscape is very varied: densely wooded gorge; riverside meadows; broadleaved woodland; orchards and arable fields; hills, mountains and open moorland.

The Wye Valley AONB is an internationally important protected landscape containing some of the most beautiful lowland scenery in Britain. Designated in 1971, this unique landscape straddles the border between England and Wales. It includes areas within Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire. The 44 mile/72km stretch of the River Wye winds down through the valley through spectacular limestone gorge scenery and dense ravine woodlands. Superb wildlife, intriguing archaeological and industrial remains and impressive geological features all make it into one of the most fascinating Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
