‘The action of explaining the meaning of something.’

Interpretation through the medium of signage covers two thematic categories; social history and natural history.


The design and materiality of our signage reflects the environment in which it is placed and the specific themes it presents. Natural forms and surrounding architecture within a built environment provide references into the design process. This enables the signage itself to become part of the creative interpretation and viewer experience that we offer.

Challis Design can provide a complete service including research, copywriting, design, documentation, project management, construction and installation.
