Project

Urban / Medium

 

The Clones interpretive signage scheme was part of a wider redevelopment of the town, principally involving the reopening a section of the Ulster Canal and the construction of a marina close to the Canal Stores.

 

The installed signs were made from durable, powder-coated and galvanised steel frames with high quality vinyl graphics, coated with and an anti graffiti film. A special cushioned mounting system was developed that allowed the panels to be mounted to rough stone walls and minimised damage to the listed structures.

 

We also managed to incorporate information from existing interpretative signage, allowing us to remove these panels and reduce visual clutter. Some of the signs referred to locations, such as the Motte and Bailey, that were heavily overgrown, so we sourced high resolution archive images to show what could no longer be seen.

 

Images on the signs integrated well with featured historic maps which clearly showed the town in its heyday when it was a major railway junction and market town.
