Signage Project – Rocky Branch Park

There is something quite refreshing about volunteer work. Generally it’s a position or job which you have picked because you have expertise, passion or interest in learning more about. It is unpaid, and the external pressure and expectations you get from a paid position are generally non-existent.

While I have had, and do, multiple volunteer jobs for one of the parks in the Tarheel Trailblazers organization, taking on new responsibilities is rewarding from a knowledge building perspective. This role was centered around designing, installing and maintaining a mountain bike/hiking parks signage. The project included the main entrance information boards, way finding, and safety signs. read more

Rocky Branch Park – Kiosk Maps

Design: Adobe Illustrator, GIS for Maps
Printing: Gaston Printing and Signs

Mockups and Design

Craig Brickser from CTD Trail Design provided the base GIS layer gave the map some depth. I then used reference points, old GPS data from previous rides and exploratory rides to overlay this onto the maps, to create the trail lines. There is a fine line with regards to how much, or how little detail to show on public facing maps, so there was some trial and error. Included are some early versions, and mockups of the existing trails.

This main map was (and is still) used to create the individual loop maps at the hub of each trail.
