The Catoctin Furnace African American Cemetery Interpretive Trail is a set of 13 outdoor wayside panels set along a half-mile trail that meanders through the woods. The panels explain the ironmaking process, explores Catoctin Furnace’s historic buildings, and tells the story of the workers, both African American and European American, who lived and worked in the furnace and village.
I created a “look and feel” for their organization, utilizing rust red-orange and charcoal black, which references the iron used in the furnace. In addition to 13 wayside trail panels, I created a logo, a custom trail/village map, pole banners, a brochure, a poster series for their museum, and even a custom floor mat!
Shown: Pole Banners, Logo, Brochure, 1 of 13 Interpretive Wayside Exhibit Panels, and Two Custom Maps and Icons
