Testimonials

Emeir O’Connell, Manager of Wicklow’s Historic Gaol

"It’s more of a bespoke piece of art that acts as a curiosity and photo opportunity than an information sign. The design appeals to tourists as it is Celtic in nature and the colour scheme is warm and earthy, and it lures the tourist to it. Tourists are regularly seen huddled around the sign, reading the information and posing for photographs."

“We love the distinctive look of the design. People are engaged and we’re seeing the benefits of the cross promotion of the various attractions in our area. The quality of the signage enhances the Ireland’s Ancient East brand and it’s great to see the roll out of the signs across the region.”

Mark Durham Economic Development Programme Leader, Leeds City Council

“We commissioned Placemarque in 2016 to work with us to extend the “Legible Leeds” map and wayfinding system to new parts of Leeds city centre. Placemarque also updated our base map suite of online and printed walking maps, including the development of new maps. The team was easy to work with, and were delighted with the work produced and the quick turnaround of artwork“

Luke Skerritt, Museum, Arts & Heritage, Boston Borough Council

“The team understood our requirements and developed an innovative and cohesive scheme that was complementary to the existing street scene and historic environment of Boston. They delivered a unique solution that reprioritised and redecorated existing waymarking finger posts, developed a new town centre map and installed a number of physical orientation and interpretation monoliths. Their design toolkit has helped inform future signage and interpretative schemes."

Kate Smith, Regeneration Officer, Lancaster City Council

"Placemarque led on designing, producing and installing a family of wayfinding signs to strengthen the physical connectivity across the town and encourage movements between the historic quay, castle and canal. The signs successfully conveyed the message that while Lancaster is physically small there is much to explore. The signs will be an enduring feature of the city’s landscape."
