Caroline Miekina

Senior Interpretative Designer

Caroline is a talented and versatile designer, illustrator and visualiser with over 30 years experience. Since 2009 she has worked exclusively in the heritage sector with JANVS | VIDAR.  She has worked on a rich and varied portfolio of projects, several of which have won major awards - including bronze and silver medals at the RHS International Exhibition in London - and most recently, as Senior Interpretation Planner on two of our projects nominated for the Irish Tourism Industry Awards 2017 and one the winner of European Tourist Attraction of the Year 2017 (Fortress Spike Island).

Caroline has worked on a diverse portfolio of heritage, museum and visitor centre projects including the The Viking Triangle (Waterford, 2007-2014), Rugby Football Museum (2009), Royal Armouries (Leeds, 2009), London Transport Museum (Covent Garden, 2009), National Trust Habitat Centre (2009-10), Fairfax House (York, UK, 2010), Michael Collins House (Clonakilty, 2013-2014), Kilmainham Gaol and Courthouse (Dublin, 2014-2016), Spike Island (Cork, 2014-2017), Old Head of Kinsale (2015) and Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (2015-2017). 

Caroline has had a wealth of freelance illustration experience, involving everything from pub signs to medical operative techniques.  Some of her favourite commissions were for Nestle UK in York, a regular client for 20 years, designing seasonal packaging for Smarties, Milky Bar, and Wonka products, and for Clonakilty Brewing Company in West Cork, designing the brand identities for their range of craft beers.

 

She has always enjoyed designing for children, and is the creator of the Pipiatum character for the World Class Arena’s Common Entrance Latin Exam App, and in recent years has worked with the York Archaeological Trust to produce several ‘child focussed’ exhibitions including The Battle of Towton and A Royal Gateway.
