Commemorative Sign, K13 Submarine

A commemorative sign for WW1 submarine, the K13, was developed for Parramatta City Council. Colours chosen reflect the surrounding landscape . Date: January 2016 Service: Graphic Design Specs: 900mm wide x 600mm high Client: Parramatta City Council HMS K13 was a steam-propelled, First World War, K class submarine of the Royal Navy. She sank in a fatal accident during sea trials in early 1917 killing a number of the crew. This commemorative sign tells the amazing story of the subsequent rescue. This decade sees important anniversaries for both world wars and there has been a marked interest in commemorative signage for both wars. They are highly evocative and moving stories and we are honored to have been able to participate in these projects.
