    The RCPS Falmouth

    The RCPS Falmouth

    We’re currently helping carry out a brand audit for Cornwall’s 175 year old hub for arts, history and sciences, which will culminate in Venn creating a new identity for the historic society. In the meantime we’ve been producing some interim programmes for The Poly, The RCPS’s venue in Falmouth. Despite a tight budget we’ve produced what we think are engaging and functional programmes, which don’t sacrifice on style.

    Good Cornwall guide

    Good Cornwall guide

    We have designed, branded and built a new website highlighting only the best Cornwall has to offer. An advanced modification of a popular content management system means the site is entirely managed by the client, but stays easy to use and update. We’ve also been building customised Facebook pages, new business cards and eflyer templates to help them reach the widest audience possible. They reached 1000 fans on Facebook within 3 days of launching, and visitors to the site are going through the roof.

    The Vine Marketing

    The Vine Marketing

    Our good friends at The Vine Marketing asked us to update their site, built on Expression Engine content management system. We added a little spit and polish and a lot of soul to both improve the representation of brand image and the back end functionality of the site, creating a slicker user experience – both front and back end.

    How Long Would You Wait?

    How Long Would You Wait?

    We are delighted to launch the howlongwouldyouwait.com website. We were comissioned by effervescent in april to design and develop a digital bed for the powerful short film shot by Hana Backland, how long would you wait. The film was made to raise awareness of psychosis, and encourage referrals to Cornwall’s Early intervention Team. We ended up being heavily involved in the whole project – helping to create a strong visual style to tie the campaign together, including postcards and usb bracelets (with Myriddin Wannell). These photos don’t do it any justice – so please check it out…

    How Long Would You Wait? – Posctards

    To go with the howlongwouldyouwait campaign we designed a series of postcards featuring stills from the film by Hana Backland for effervescent. The film was made to raise awareness of psychosis and the postcards feature words written (under the guidance of copywriter extraordinaire Clare Howdle) by people who have experienced psychosis.
