The Brief

Design and deliver a range of interpretation under the theme of a ‘Window on the World’ as part of a wider development of visitor facilities at the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port.”

Our Response

In conjunction with the restoration of the original slipway and adjacent buildings, Bright 3D were commissioned to design and deliver a comprehensive package of interpretation that would guide visitors to the slipway and interpret the story of Ellesmere Port and its important role in the Industrial Revolution.

Bright worked closely with Michael Glen for the interpretive planning and writing; and with Jam Creative Studios to create an integrated suite of interpretive media that combined physical elements of interpretation with innovative digital media based on bringing to life a series of authentic historical characters.

In addition, the slipway buildings were refurbished and dressed with elements of interactive media specifically aimed at telling the stories of those working on the slipway and their crafts and skills. For example interactive toolboxes reveal the stories of the shipwrights and the tools that they would have used to repair boats at Ellesmere Port.

Throughout the site visitors can use mobile devices to bring characters to life with a sophisticated augmented reality programme which also helps guide visitors around the attractions at Ellesmere Port.
