The Wellington Point Notice Board & Seat was designed as part of a streetscape upgrade to the main business district of Wellington Point. The timber work was conceptualised to filter light as per dappled light through trees. The sandblasted image on the noticeboard (a gerbera) references local market gardens, in an area well known for flower production. It was decided glass would be used for the noticeboard to reduce the visual weight, and exclude the use of pins and tacks which were seen as a pedestrian hazard. Noticeboard users are encouraged to use blutak and sticky tape instead. Solar powered, warm light Luxeon LEDs highlight the sandblasting on the noticeboard at night.
