Sheffield Children’s Hospital gets a cheerful makover

Reading Time: 2 minutes

No more dragging your kids to the hospital any more! Independent designer, illustrator & lecturer, Nick Deakin, has blown some fresh air and a substantial amount of colour into the Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s treatment rooms – making hospital visits a go-go rather than a no-go for kids.

Working alongside the hospital’s charity arts programme, Artfelt, Nick infused the department with his bold characteristic style and a bright colour palette flooding the space. The project is designed to both engage and stimulate young patients and assist in clinical assessment (by providing just the right amount of visual distraction for young patients) – clever!

Design has the power to communicate, evoke the senses and transform the spaces we live in – explore the intangible value of design (reaching much further that aesthetics alone)

great brands are communicated, not designed
