Rievaulx Reviewed is a seasonal exhibition and visitor programme, held at Rievaulx Abbey in the North York Moors. The impressive ruins of a once powerful Cistercian monastery have been cared for by English Heritage for over 100 years.
Celebrating 100 years of care
To mark the milestone year in 2017, English Heritage asked us to design and produce a photographic exhibition — ‘Rievaulx Reviewed’. Using archive imagery and 3D effect stereograms, the exhibition traces the transformation of the abbey from ruin to the monument it is today.
The identity that we created uses a vertical line to split the logotype. This is a visual reference to timelines and also the format of stereogram prints — images of two slightly different photographs are printed side by side and viewed using a stereoscope. For the exhibition, we produced kit bags filled with historic stereogram prints and a stereoscope that visitors could take on their journey around the abbey, using it to compare with the vistas today.
