APD emergency services artwork unveiled
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

APD Communications has created a work of art to commemorate the work done by its clients in the emergency services.

The Tapestry of the Emergency Services is 6ft by 4ft. It consists of 64 pegs, each of which is associated with a “meaningful word” to describe those working in public safety. It “comes to life” by wrapping four colours of thread - red, blue, yellow and green - , around the pegs to represent each of the UK emergency services.

The launch venue for the work is the Centre for Digital Innovation (C4DI) tech hub in APD’s home city of Hull.

Speaking of the piece, Rhiannon Beeson, APD marketing and sales Manager, said: “We work with emergency services organisations and critical control operations around the world, but we’re very proud of our roots, and to call Hull our home.

“The tapestry board is an attractive and engaging way of showing how people feel about the emergency services. In a world of digital content, it’s nice to create something that’s tactile and based on a traditional craft.”
