Cape Hatteras National Seashore, the nation’s first national seashore, was established in 1937 to preserve segments of unspoiled barrier islands along the North Carolina coast. Seventy miles of shoreline provide a range of recreational outdoor activities and opportunities to discover the rich history of these dynamic islands.
We worked with National Park Service staff to create six new graphic panels for outdoor wayside exhibits. The panels provide information about things to see and do in the area, and share interpretive stories about the cultural and natural history of the islands. Our planning and design team provided site analysis, research, graphic design, text writing and editing, coordination for image acquisition, and management of fabrication subcontractors.
The final wayside exhibits enhance the visitor experience by providing clear, easy-to-understand orientation information, describing the history of the area, and showing that there is more to explore on the islands than just the beach.
