Design79 have been building a good reputation with the National Trust for a creative, swift friendly service.
Being a National Trust South West design supplier we work across six counties; Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Dorset.
The south west has over 5 million visitors a year, with 83 historic houses and gardens and heritage sites.
We have built up strong relationships with more and more design buyers from many National Trust locations, such as Lanhydrock and Godolphin House. The creative work ranges from simple promotional leaflets to large scale interpretation graphics for visitor centres.
A lot of our larger projects are still being created in the studio, but will be launching this spring and summer.
Our teams recent and ongoing interpretation graphics involve a little more than just graphic design, such as site visits and discussions with various parties: Experience Managers, Marketing departments, production companies, Tour guides, and Regional Managers. We carry out measurements and take a full visual report from the site back to our studio where the team create moodboards and initial visuals that communicate the spirit of the sites.
We are currently working with the marketing teams at Levant, Botallack, Sennen and Godolphin with work kicking off soon at Glendurgan.
I have been really impressed by both the speed at which you guys have got initial moodboards over to me, and also how (seemingly) easily you have grasped the spirit of each place.

National Trust New work
These projects are fantastically immersive for both the client and our team. And the locations are stunning.
We are delighted to be working with the Trust in this formal role as graphic designers. All the team (like most of us lucky enough to live near Trust locations) get an enormous amount of enjoyment from National Trust visits, and it will be fantastic to be closely involved with how they visually communicate.
We are so thrilled with this win, this is a great opportunity for our creative agency. The National Trust is such a strong brand and one that stands for very good causes.
