The Guardian top 50
Adrian Fisher is internationally renowned as the world's leading maze designer.
Over the past 35 years he has created over 600 mazes in more than 30 countries, setting six world records and winning two gold medals for garden design in the process.
Adrian's imaginative and innovative designs are created in the landscape or indoor environments. They are visually artistic, entertaining, playful, and highly newsworthy to the delight of his clients, who enjoy their promotional benefits.
Adrian's work can be seen at the world's finest historic buildings and private gardens including Alnwick Castle, Blenheim Palace, Capel Manor, Longleat House and Speke Hall, with the National Trust amongst his prestigious client list. He has also created rides and puzzles for iconic visitor attractions across the globe including Legoland, Tussauds and the London Dungeon.
Each installation is uniquely relevant to its owners, reflecting how they welcome and entertain their guests. Towers, grottoes and tunnels feature within mazes made of hedges, paving, mirrors, water and tiles. His team of garden designers and craftsmen takes projects from creative concept to detailed design, supply and installation worldwide.
Named by The Guardian newspaper in 2007 as one of Britain's top 50 designers, Adrian is also prominent in the field of public art. He devised a new Bus Map concept for London Transport, invented the Mitre Tiling system and the 7-sided Fisher Paver system, and applied his holistic approach to the future development of Stamford - an English market town with over 500 historic buildings.
Adrian's puzzles regularly appear in newspapers and magazines around the world. His 'Navigati' puzzle appears every day in Britain's Daily Mail, and 'Mandali' features in the BBC's weekly magazine, the Radio Times.
Adrian runs the business with his wife Marie from their estate and studios in the beautiful Dorset countryside. Within the grounds he has built a traditional hedge maze containing a wondrous castellated folly, making full use of the local flint, oak and artisan craftsmen - along with the spectacular views across the Stour Valley.
Adrian serves on the European Board of the leisure industry's professional suppliers' association, TEA, which is dedicated to creating compelling places and experiences. His company is also a member of the International Attractions and Amusement Parks Association and the British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions.
Adrian Fisher Design's highly creative services range from mazes and puzzles, landscape and garden design, entertaining and educational experiences and special events through to public art and community renewal.
