I create designs and 3D visualisations of playgrounds for schools and nurseries across the UK.  I make sure all designs meet the brief and Red Monkey standards as well as making sure children will want to use their new outdoor space.  I really enjoy seeing how the designs come to life from an image on a computer screen to a finished playground and seeing the children enjoying their new outdoor space is very rewarding.
