What we do
Tandem provides interpretive consultation and design services to heritage sectors and visitor-focused organisations.
At Tandem we create world-class visitor and brand experiences. The subjects are fascinating and varied – from Titanic to Seamus Heaney and from ‘the beautiful game’ to the Wild Atlantic Way.
We use smart, beautiful design with diligent research, writing and planning to tell stories that inspire and entertain. It’s unusually rich and exciting work that makes a real difference.
We believe in the power of interpretation to help individuals and communities find long-lasting value and meaning in heritage and culture. That’s why we place learning at the heart of our design process and understand its role in providing fun, thought-provoking and fulfilling experiences that will be remembered
We have worked at every scale; from designing a tiny reading space that only children can access, to creating larger-than-life figurative statues that tower over visitors at an ancient heritage site. And, we have interpreted stories and places using all kinds of media; from paper leaflets and activity sheets – through interpretive exhibitions and interior interventions – to hands-on interactive displays and immersive audio-visual experiences.
If you would like to discuss how we can help you or your organisation tell your important stories, please get in touch.
