Where we started

We (Dee and Peter) founded The Interpretive Design Company (TIDC) in 2011. Our common interest in the natural environment and cultural heritage made it a natural progression from our existing graphic design business into the world of interpretation.

Over the years our small and agile company has become increasingly focused on connecting the visitor with the values of place. We have delivered hundreds of interpretation projects for iconic sites across Australia and beyond.

We research stories, develop themes and key messages, write content, design signage, create interpretive plans and project manage production. Our award-winning projects have been recognised nationally and internationally.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land we work on, the Gumbaynggirr people, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
