Leysdown Rose-Tinted - alternative signage
Commissioned by FrancisKnight Public Art Consultancy
for Swale Borough Council and Kent County Council
September 2011 - March 2012

Mark C. Hewitt was commissioned as writer in residence for Leysdown Rose-Tinted, a public art initiative in Leysdown-on-Sea on the Isle of Sheppey. Part of the job involved creating new signage for the village, from practical interventions such as a new village sign giving information about local attractions to more whimsical bits of street signage. The commission - for Swale Borough Council - was devised and managed by FrancisKnight Public Art Consultancy.
