If you’re heading to the east of England this weekend, look out for the National Trust’s latest advertising campaign encouraging visitors to have fun.
Designed by The Click Design Consultants and led by creative director Bobby Burrage, the campaign features a range of posters that look like warning signs or restrictions – such as “keep off the grass” and “reserved” notices – but invite people to play, sit, explore, take photographs and have some fun.
The signs also feature the hashtag #NaturesPlayground, encouraging people to share and comment on their visits to National Trust sites using social media.
“The new signs are a fun, tongue-in-cheek way to help people reconnect with nature and enjoy our outdoor spaces to the full. Some people still view us as being very formal with lots of rules and regulations. I would encourage those people to come along and see how we have changed over the years,” he says.
