Recent Project: Graphic Panels for a county park
Martial Cottle Park is a new County Park built on the old Martial Cottle Farm in the County of Santa Clara. The farm has been surrounded by suburbs, and was built with group picnics and recreation in mind. The campus required a signage program to direct visitors where to enter, pay, park, locate reserved picnic areas, and read park rules and regulations. Using a natural color scheme the design blended seamlessly with the environment and created an approachable feel for all ages. The program also included a series of interpretive graphic panels and exhibit panels sharing the Cottle family and farming history. I was responsible for the graphic design and artwork production for the project.
