Design for AONBs

For many years, we have helped AONBs (Areas of Outstanding National Beauty) to promote themselves and the fantastic world they have on offer right on their respective doorsteps!


From hedgelaying and drystone walling competitions, to touring the Brecon Beacons and enjoying the peace of the Malvern Hills - we've promoted it all, in print and on the web, yet never forgetting the necessarily tight rein on budgets and timetables.


Explore the Cotswolds: In 1999, we were asked to design a publication aimed at encouraging visitors to the Cotswolds using public transport. By summer 2010 we had produced the 11th issue - by all accounts it’s still a success with both the visitor and those promoting tourism to the area . It is specifically requested year on year at tourist information centres around the country.


The guide takes the form of a pocket sized booklet with fold-out route maps covering the wide choice of venues to visit, with taster days out for the walker and cyclist. Throughout, the content is designed with the emphasis on using public transport. The booklet is accompanied by a series of timetable guides giving bus and train times for the extensive Cotswolds AONB, with an additional a booklet of trips and timetable information for the Cotswolds Way National Trail.


Since 2010 we've responsible not only for the design of the booklets plus commissioning of the specialist transport details for the Explore series of booklets, but we also produced the content, with copywriting and research work all handled in-house.


A feather in our cap came our way with a recent endorsement from Natural England, recognising the publications as 'best practice' in promoting sustainable travel.
