Cromer Prospect

Commissioner: North Norfolk District Council

David Ward, Ray Carpenter and Stephen Parry

We worked in partnership with North Norfolk District Council to secure funding for the appointment of a lead artist to work with the team responsible for the regeneration of Cromer's seafront and pier.

Working with landscape designers Mott MacDonald, lead artists David Ward incorporated details of historic lifeboat rescues into the landscaping of the pier forecourt using brass inlaid text in a unique font designed for Cromer by typographer Ray Carpenter. Transformed at night, Cromer's famous flint walls are illuminated by subtle washes of coloured light that Ward developed with lighting designer Chris Baldwin. Artist Stephen Parry was commissioned to create a series of large ceramic panels for the Rocket House Museum that reflect Cromer's changing light, sand and sea.

The project was funded by Arts Council England East, the East of England Development Agency, the European Regional Development Fund and North Norfolk District Council.
