″ The new wayfinding signage design has resulted
in an estimated 45% reduction in journey times″
″Infusing nature with interior design has created an enriched and restorative environment for
children, families and staff.″

This project won the prestigious London based international Association of Illustrators (AOI) Awards 2013, category Public Realm.
My illustrations were used throughout the New Royal Children′s Hospital as way finding and interior graphics.
I worked for a year full time on this project and got to work with an amazing team of people.
Environmental themes and related characters were used to describe destinations and functions in the hospital.
As a result journeys were created that were easy to describe and remember by adults and children
Moving through the different floors of the hospital their journey takes them from ′underground′ at the lower ground levels through to ′sky′ on the top floor.
Specific areas within each level are described in relation to an appropriate animal, for example, ′Koala Ward′ exists on the
′Tree Tops′ level.
Buro North worked with my illustrations to create highly distinctive wayfinding graphics and over 5,000 signs, wall panels and essential landmarks for the large hospital site.
