Below: A large part of the package included photo-composite artistic impressions of 6 of the reserves zones. The main building was designed with a lilly pad theme running through it, I followed this theme in my designs for other areas and installations.

Left: The interpretation included several storylines that we thought could be clearly represented through the site using colour themes. Colour pallets for these themes were drawn from colours found in the Tongli Reserve. Typographic solutions were explored considering the balance of Chinese and English text. Sign structure ideas included printing directly to substrate.
