Which Story To Tell?

Our day job (theme park construction) involves telling stories visually. As we consider the elements for the detailed designs for the inn we are talking about the story as much as the art we are creating. The big question is always: 'What story are we telling?'

The explorer's suite, the North Star was ‘built' by a world traveller, who experienced many great adventures and collected treasures from far and wide. Many of the artifacts she collected will be on display throughout the suite and garden. What she witnessed also greatly informed the design of the suite's architecture. A small detail like the brackets under the eaves of the front tower are a prime example. So the question is do we focus on a maritime theme (after all the suite's bedroom is a tall ship) or instead explore her travels and adventures? Stay tuned for the answer...
