Hedlund Dog Park, Hope, BC
Hedlund Off-Leash Dog Park Sign

Whenever Boldfish Creative teams up with the talented builder Justin Brown, magic happens. Actually - it's less magic, and more work. This lovely kiosk is a new addition to the quiver of branded community signs. It sports a covered area and a bench for those not-so-sunny days. Championed by Libby Kirkland and the volunteers that made the dog park a reality, we were delighted to design such a fun sign for our furry friends. Having frequented this park myself, I felt a real connection to this project....

Coquihalla Canyon Park interp sign
Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park – Interpretive Signage

As a frequent visitor to the Coquihalla Canyon, this was a project close to my heart! We worked with BC Parks staff, AdvantageHOPE, and local resources to create both interpretive and informational signage for this park. A total of 11 interpretive and  informational signs were designed in compliance with BC Parks Signage Standards. Most of the signs featured custom hand drawn historical maps and graphic elements. Several different kiosk sizes were accommodated. It makes me smile every time we stroll through the park and see people eagerly crowding around a sign to learn about the fantastic history of this storied canyon and the railway that ran through it!...
