Archaeology, National Trust Communications and Heritage Interpretation


Ancient

Lives

Rooted in the past, listening to community, talking to the present

Our interpretive projects are informed by knowledge of how to investigate historical sources; the skills to communicate with client groups and stakeholders; and experience of the many ways to tell the story of people and place that fires the spark for your visitor.

Three pillars of Design

The Wildlight philosophy is that the visitor experience should be enjoyable and uplifting as well as informative. Tim gives your heritage interpretation project a strong conceptual steer grounded in his historical knowledge, design training, and interest in human centered design.

CONCEPTUAL

With clarity comes creativity. The process of sifting and refining gives new and imaginative solutions as we disentangle the strands. Sometimes the unexpected occurs giving a new way of looking and sharing.

PHYSICAL

Physical objects using real materials bring a sense of connnection. Tactile materials, evocative images and distilled words take people over the threshold of the everyday and into a new place in the imagination.
