Fairytale Farm is a unique concept. With ambitions to open the farm to the public in the summer of 2012, Nick Laister’s vision remains clear: “We want to create an inclusive facility, designed to be completely accessible to, and stimulate the imagination of, children with varying disabilities, but which these children can enjoy alongside children and families without disabilities.
There are very few rural facilities for disabled children and their families. As most parents of children with special needs know, much of the countryside is out of bounds. Although there are a number of centres for disabled children, these tend to be institutional and require advanced booking, and most mainstream attractions are not fully accessible, despite the efforts of owners.
Fairytale Farm will be different. We will be the first family farm attraction where everything is designed around the needs of children with sensory, learning and physical disabilities. But we hope that children without disabilities will enjoy it too!”
mark-making* has been donating its time and expertise to the project for the past few months, developing an identity programme for the farm that will help raise its profile, generate greater interest and attract more much needed support. The website design and build follows the creation of the logo and core visual assets earlier in the year.
