Steve Messam 2009

Commissioned by Cumbria Tourism as part of the Capital of Adventure campaign, these signs were designed to highlight the variety of outdoor activities available in the Lakes as well as promoting the area as a place to visit. They were placed and photographed at various locations around the county, carried in a landrover or small helicopter to enable quick fell-top photo shoots. The signs were then given to Art Roots at Grizedale Forest. Some are still in place but some have since disappeared.
