Swindon based Festival of Tomorrow is an action-packed exploration of science, technology and research! With cutting-edge exhibitors, hands-on science, talks, shows and workshops - people of all ages and backgrounds can explore and be inspired in a fun and accessible way.
The team reached out to us needing support with numerous printed and digital items for both the festival and the marketing of the event in the weeks prior. There was a large volume of tasks with tight timescales, so we worked with the festival organisers using our project management tool to ensure efficiency and constant communication.
There was already a brand in place from previous years, but they were looking to build on this for 2022 and turn it into something that could be consistently used across all mediums, as well as by partners and sponsors. With this in mind, we also created simple brand guidelines to accompany the marketing materials, to ensure anybody working with the brand would do so consistently.
After a successful 2022 festival, we were then asked to create a new website for the 2023 event (and beyond!). It was important that the work we'd done to build on the brand was also present on the website, as this is a key marketing tool for the festival.
Our graphic design team created a consistent visual experience for all those who interacted with the brand. This included materials to market the event such as social media graphics and flyers, as well as collateral for the day itself - including festival programmes, floor plans, banners and signage. We also managed the printing of the items, from liaising with the printers about the best materials and finishes, to coordinating delivery schedules so everything arrived on time.
When it came to the new website design, our challenge was to give a streamlined approach to booking events and to restructure the navigation so key areas of the site were no longer hidden from view, allowing users to find out more about other fun and exciting projects that the Festival of Tomorrow are involved with.
The design utilises the black and yellow brand colours and emphasises the angles at every opportunity to create a more engaging and visual impact. We have also added transitions to reflect the excitement within the festival and the shows, talks and experiments that happen throughout the event every year.
Absolutely fantastic as always. The quality of work and quality of service are second to none!
