A future-facing vision for Tullie


A future-facing vision for Tullie

Transforming Cumbria’s home for art and culture


Tullie is transforming, and we’re thrilled to help shape this new chapter for one of Cumbria’s most influential cultural spaces.

With almost one million items in its collection, a forward-thinking programme of special exhibitions and events, and a new, future-facing vision, Tullie is reestablishing itself as a go-to cultural and community destination for both global visitors and the people of Carlisle. This is set to be the most significant development for the museum in over 30 years; a multi-million pound project that offers a revitalised entrance and atrium space, new retail offer, and a brand-new ground floor gallery dedicated to the city of Carlisle.

“Tullie is one of our main attractions and their exciting plans will provide a boost to our cultural offer. Providing lasting legacies for all to enjoy.”

Our UK team will be working alongside Tullie and its local communities to roll out a bespoke wayfinding and signage system that looks to intuitively connect the spaces and experiences on offer, enriching the visitor journey and dynamically underlining the organisation’s values and vision.

This is an exciting one, so keep an eye out for updates over the coming months.
