Jane Pit Workington
Workington Town Council is undertaking a community project to commemorate the contribution of mining to the town’s history and create a memorial to the men, women and children whose labours contributed significantly to the wealth of the area. The remains of Jane Pit are protected as a Scheduled Monument. The memorial will be achieved by bringing people together and helping communities to discover the local history of their area. This will include community archaeology, group discussions to reveal stories about Jane Pit, public events and volunteering opportunities to learn new skills and share experiences together.
I was asked to develop the brand for the project and worked with Workington Town Council to create a strong logo which included an illustration of the mine’s buildings but with a contemporary twist.
