As Peter and I considered the design of NEB's Fun World's new entrance it was critical that it do a number of things. It of course had to be visible from everywhere in the large parking lot. It had to present a strong visual clue about what was inside. It had to create a sense of excitement and arrival and it had to convey that as you passed through the everyday world and all it's cares would be left behind. The answer to all of those needs was a fantastical arch of a giant fallen tree with magical creatures perched on top. The lettering will be backlit of course to make it even more special at night.
