Interpretation design is where the art of design and science of interpretation meet. Our role is to ask the right questions, facilitate and deliver rewarding visitor experiences.

Abound was founded by Russell and Carol Eggleton. Russell has over 25 years experience in designing and delivering interpretation projects of all sizes, from Shetland, to the south of England. Meanwhile, Carol provides valuable business acumen and administrative support.

As a small company we build dynamic teams with like-minded professionals – allowing us to align skills and resources to meet the needs of any given project. We value the relationships we build with our clients and work collaboratively to best interpret the brief and understand visitors’ needs. Meanwhile, we seek opportunities to extract the best value from your budget, actively managing the relationship between time, cost and quality.

How we can help:

  • supporting feasibility studies, grant applications and interpretative planning of on-site and new media projects
  • 3D and graphic design for temporary exhibitions, galleries and touring exhibits, utilising both traditional and digital media
  • interactive and multimedia exhibit design
  • outdoor interpretation and signage
  • project management


Case Studies & Selected Works

We hope that you will find working with Abound a refreshing experience, as we are as keen to see the best possible outcome for your project, as you are.

     I have enjoyed working with you and I’m really pleased with the results at Falkland.'

  • 'I am really happy with the museum and just wanted to congratulate you on your design'

A cracking visit to Bletchley Park

October 25, 2019

I was excited to visit Bletchley Park with interpretation colleagues, as part of the AHI 2019 Conference. The visit fed both my personal and professional interests. I have long been fascinated by the story of the code breakers, and like many, have enjoyed watching the likes of The Imitation Game. […]

Reasons to use digital interactives (or not)

October 23, 2019

Digital media has become ubiquitous within exhibition spaces. However, with touchscreens now such an integral part of our daily lives too, some are questioning whether we should take a fresh look at analogue. We hit pause for a moment to consider the pros and cons. Reasons for using digital participatory […]
