A Real Piece of Work: Project Overview & Objectives
Arcus Communication Design was recently asked to design a series of outdoor interpretive signs for the Patrick Marsh conservation area.
Located adjacent to the City of Sun Prairie, the 145-acre Patrick Marsh is surrounded by land owned and managed by the Wisconsin DNR, Dane County, and Natural Heritage Land Trust.
Part of Patrick Marsh’s ongoing site improvements, the signs consist of four individual placards outlining the Marsh’s significance from its prehistoric glacial past, resource for Native Americans and early European settlers, and “living laboratory” for today’s young environmental-studies students at nearby Patrick Marsh Middle School. A local display fabricator produced the weatherproof installations.
Incorporating illustrations and artwork by these students, and historical and modern photos and text from a variety of sources, Arcus Communication Design created the colorful and inviting placards. Using a variety of visually-engaging graphical representations of these ideas and messages, the interpretive panels educate visitors and help bring to life this important place.
