Wildgoose Nature Reserve Outdoor Signage

Wildgoose Nature Reserve commissioned Osis Displays to create 7 display boards for their site in the River Severn Valley. This was a really interesting project as it incorporated many different topics relating to the site. These included geology, land management, history, geography, wildlife and archaeology. Wildgoose Rural Training provides opportunities for all types of people to get involved in working with the land and animals, and working on this project was an opportunity to learn how all the different aspects of natural and human factors have created a piece of our landscape.

Newport Council Nature Reserve Display

We were asked by Newport Council to design and deliver an interpretation board for their local nature reserve. They asked for various species illustrations as well as a larger illustration of the lake. We created the original illustrations and created the layout to be as engaging as possible considering the amount of content being included.¬†With the density of information required and the requirement to include both English and Welsh text, it was a challenge getting everything to fit onto one board. We were pleased with the result, as was the client: “The board looks great! I am happy for it

Wakefield Wildlife Signs

Our new wildlife signs for Wakefield Renewi have just been installed and they look fabulous – adding some colour to the winter woodland! We were contacted early in 2018 to provide a quote for 11 display boards for South Kirby Woodlands & Wildlife Pond. Working closely with the Education Officer who identified the main themes and species needed for the displays we created a set of designs that were very well received. Vandal resistance was a big concern so we used full colour graphics printed onto graffiti proof materials rated for 10 year resistance to fading. The lecterns are made
