Welcome to Artifex Designs

Where Fun Artwork, Immersive Theming, Imaginative Events and Creative Workshops come together.

Creating fun, imaginative, educational, inspiring and magical spaces and events.  Having seen both perspectives, from time in attractions management and from a suppliers viewpoint, we understand how creating a space your visitors will love and want to return to time and time again can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t need to be.

We help our customers transform their venues.  With a whole host of services available, from imagination sparking play areas to transforming animal barns into  Christmas wonder’barns that take your visitors on magical journeys with enough magic and sparkle to make even the grinch’iest believe.

Covering detailed artwork to cartoons, UV 3D halloween mazes to spooky houses, small cosy events to large immersive experiences, nature trails, photo opportunities, signage, escape rooms and even artificial snow, we are here to help you create amazing, unique environments and memorable experiences for your customers.

About Us

We are passionate about helping attractions create fun, imaginative and immersive spaces in their venues, whether that be permanent installations or temporary seasonal events.

Hi, I’m Layona, the founder here at Artifex Designs.  Following 20 years as a mural artist, a background in attractions management and a desire to follow my dream of enjoying going to work everyday and seeing visitors enjoy my creations, Artifex Designs was born.

We cover a whole host of exciting, artistic and creative services.  Over the years we have worked alongside and built up a team of diverse professionals enabling the big builds, cute and cosy, inventive, immersive, magical, creative, creepy and completely mad spaces in our portfolio.

We have worked with a wide range of farm parks, zoo’s, garden centres, escape rooms, country parks and many more over a diverse range of projects including  artwork, special effects, theming and event consultancy.  We specialise in artwork for family attractions and Halloween and Christmas services.

New to Artifex Designs in 2021, we are excited to launch the Artifex Studio where we will be passing on our love of creativity with an array of artwork, creative and seasonal workshops.

What do our customers say about us?

Layona is simply brilliant… What she quietly achieved at Tulleys Shoctoberfest using UV paint for a 3D effect in one of our Halloween haunts was astonishing!!

The difference our new grottos made this year was outstanding, children had previously been nervous of Father Christmas, now they are running in and hugging him in his relaxed and magical grottos, Thank you.
