Stuart Spurring

Assistant director

Stuart is assistant director of the Sensory Trust and works closely with Jane and Victoria to develop the organisation’s strategy and programme of projects and consultancy.

With a background in graphic design and publishing, Stuart heads up the Sensory Trust’s information design and visitor experience work, developing engaging and creative ways to connect people with nature and the outdoors. He applies his design skills to project and consultancy work and is responsible for much of the information and graphic design work at the Trust.

Recent work includes spearheading our first Kickstarter campaign to support the development of a gorgeous new treasure hunt card game 'gofindit'.

Stuart joined the Sensory Trust to lead a new programme focused on the design of accessible information and raising professional awareness of the importance of information in opening up open spaces to the widest audience. Prior to moving to the Sensory Trust, Stuart worked as a graphic artist for a regional media centre in the Pacific. This work included running projects for the Fiji Disabled People’s Association, work which highlighted some of the challenges (rather than restrictions) that designing accessible information poses.

Recent content development work includes the new publication 'out to play in Cornwall', the Let Nature Feed Your Senses project and developing a new visitor engagement toolkit for the Forestry Commission and Natural England.

Design work includes the introductory banners lining the entrance to Eden Project, advising the National Trust on playful design and the design and development of nature-based games and exploratory tools to encourage children and adults to engage with the natural world through all their senses.
