From slithering snakes to swinging apes, our work with Chester Zoo has been a roaring success!

Chester Zoo

Chester Zoo is world renowned as a conservation, animal and leisure attraction and is the UK's most visited tourist attraction outside of London (and our favourite).

We've relished the opportunity to work with the team on a variety of projects over the last year with projects both at home on British soil and far away as part of their ongoing efforts to preserve wildlife in its natural habitat. Together we've worked hard to bring the story of the zoo's inhabitants to life whilst making it easy for zoo explorers to navigate their way around the various exhibits on offer. 

Interpretation design with a difference

Working with Chester Zoo's colourful and informal branding, we've produced a wide range of interpretation panel designs that have since been released into the wild. With a combination of hand drawn animal illustrations, enclosure plans and infographics, these large scale printed panels are delightfully engaging.

Animal illustrations (inside & out)

As well as detailing an animal's environment we have been asked to produce detailed anatomy drawings for a range of species at the zoo describing not only their skeletal and internal organs but also their physical movements and behaviours.  

Chester Zoo Islands Project

The latest of Chester Zoo's state-of-the-art habitats is 'Islands', an incredible feat in both animal conservation and landscape development. We've produced a range of artwork for the new zone including working on the illustrated map as well many other interpretation and directional signage across the attraction.

Sing for Songbirds Campaign

We're proud to have worked with Chester Zoo on their Silent Forest Campaign, a project to discourage the trapping of wild and endangered Indonesian songbirds. Working with the team we've produced a colourful children's book aimed at highlighting the problem to locals at a younger age, this book was produced for schools in Indonesia. There is also an English version for sale in the Chester Zoo shop. 

Working with Root Studio really takes the stress out of sourcing great graphic design; they understand our brand and never fail to deliver crowd-pleasing designs. We very much look forward to working with them on future projects over the next few years.
