Project commissioned by Westfield Shoppingtowns Ltd
A short film was made about this project, view this footage.
Lynne worked on a large-scale mural project as part of the 360 million pound development of the Westfield inner city shopping centre in Derby. Lynne designed and painted the 80-metre mural based on a ‘retail experience’ theme. Lynne’s design for the mural inspired the lighting, seating, signage for the centre and also the colour palette of the planting in the landscaping outside the entrance to the underpass. The mural creates a warm welcome for shoppers and visitors to the city as the mural is based in the underpass which leads into the shopping centre from the Derby train station. The footfall at this entrance is the largest at all the shopping centre entrances.
Lynne worked with Primary and Secondary schools, Derwent art group and students from Mackworth College. The mural, which creates a warm welcome for shoppers, was painted along the Traffic Street underpass, the main entrance linking the train station to Westfield Derby. As part of this project, Lynne also set up a design competition across Derby Schools where students were invited to design a pattern for a shopping bag, shoes or a t-shirt. The winning designs were to have their drawings included in the mural and displayed on canvas in the Centre’s Parents Rooms. The three winning designs were by Jessica Freeman from Woodlands School, Amy Potter from Beaufort Community Primary School and Olivia Cook from Curzon Primary School. Alongside their work, the designs of other highly commended entries were also included in the mural.
