Whales are captivating creatures that hold immense significance both within the marine ecosystem and human culture. Our whale watching signs aim to inform and engage visitors, providing a unique opportunity to deepen their understanding of the ocean’s interconnected web of life. Combining a mixture of photographic images, line drawings, and illustrations, our signage vividly portrays the remarkable journey of whales, with a particular focus on humpbacks.

Barrenjoey Headland whale signs

In 2023, we proudly completed two whale watching signs at Barrenjoey Headland in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park – an ideal vantage point for spotting whales. These signs offer valuable insights and suggestions for ethical behavior, encompassing safe whale observation techniques, preventing boat collisions, and emphasising the vital importance of preserving whale habitat. The accessible and engaging information intends to inspire a deep appreciation for the marvels of whales, foster an understanding of their conservation value, and encourage visitors to take actionable steps to protect these magnificent creatures.

Cape Solander whale signs

In 2014, our team developed whale watching signs for Cape Solander in Kamay Botany Bay National Park. We covered every aspect of the project, from design and content writing to image sourcing and illustration.

Solitary Islands Marine Park

At The Interpretive Design Company, we have a rich history of developing numerous interpretive signs about whales over the past decade. Notably, two of our designs feature curved tops – one resembling a whale tail, and the other, a wave. These signs, commissioned by NPWS and the Solitary Islands Marine Park, are constructed of durable aluminium to withstand the harsh and exposed conditions where they are displayed. Our designs are based on intricate line drawings and utilize a limited palette of two colors, creating visually impactful and informative signage.
