Environmental Illustration | Nottingham Trent University
Environmental illustration requires the illustrator to consider scale in more depth and understand that what works at small size takes on a completely different feel when increased to large proportions. Many designers have used illustration within public spaces to provide a source of inspiration and to transform the atmosphere and tone of the environment.
Design a series of large-scale illustrations for one of The Science Museum London. Canvas illustrations are showcase on large interior walls in the foyer of the museum and one of the stairwells. The walls ‘canvases’ convey a narrative about the venue, focusing on the audience (Age 7+).
Designs for three illustrated walls for the museum
Wall one measures 2.5 metres high by 22 metres wide
Wall two measure 13 metres high by 5 metres wide
Wall three measures 2.5 metres high 8 metres wide
