It’s the question that usually follows my statement that, at Leading Hand, Environmental Design is one of our key services.
Environmental Design embodies art direction, graphic design and illustration. It is regularly used in architecture on walls, stairs, ceilings and any number of architectural surfaces and also often on the surfaces between buildings such as playgrounds, walkways and a myriad of other open spaces.
We are very excited about our most recent Environmental Design project at the Alexandria Park Community School. We designed the graphics for the pop-up school which is a series of demountable structures for the high school students to occupy while their new permanent school is being built.
Environmental Design can perform many functions: create visual wayfinding solutions; enhance a sense of community and identity; and can communicate other important sets of information.
At Alexandria Park Community School the designs showcase Australian wildlife and botany in a design narrative that reimagines the previous student mural.
Stay tuned for more environmental design projects for us in the coming months.
