The intention was to create an installation, which might bring attention to the city centre and play a part in encouraging people to return to the high street. We worked closely with the fabricators to ensure that quality and timescales were maintained. The sign is temporary and had to be designed to support itself in steel with artistic rope forming different shapes for interaction.
