Wednesday was a milestone for Taylor-Bray Farm in Yarmouth Port. With their Spring Sheep Festival coming up this Sunday, Cape Cod Tech has been hard at work for the past 3 months providing integral signage explaining the layout and farm’s historical significance. 

The project consisted of a 12’ Kiosk along with 5 Pedestal signs located throughout the farm at each significant location. 

The Design + Visual Communication Department's Junior class consisting of Jonathan Young, Hannah Capra, Therese Henault, Hannah Richardson, Ashley Guest worked a combined 60 hours to complete the design and aesthetic of each sign. Compiling page after page of historical information and retouching new and old photography to provide a comprehensive snapshot into the farms layout, past and future needs.

The Carpentry Department headed by Instructor Brent Warren Constructed the Kiosk and pedestal signs that are located throughout the farm. 

I have included the initial schematics, design meetings with Taylor Bray representatives Hank Teuwen and Jack Duggan, installation video, and final photographs. The Kiosk is still awaiting a few components such as it’s red cedar roof, bulletin board and donation box.
