Coventry University’s Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing Year in Review

Coventry University’s Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing Year in Review

Coventry University's Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing has a long and proud history of vibrant, innovative and impactful research, applying our knowledge and expertise to benefit businesses and society all over the world.

Their world-class research teams, supported by excellent facilities, and working in collaboration with global partners, are providing the scientific and engineering advances that underpin the development of new technology for wealth creation, sustainable development, and improved safety and security in people’s personal and professional lives.

Organised into four over-arching and multidisciplinary Faculty Research Centres, their research benefits from an impressive, ever-growing network of commercial, academic and government partnerships here in the UK, throughout Europe, and across the globe with an ambition to increase the volume, scope and impact of their research even further.

Create Onsight were delighted to be approached to design the first Research Review for Coventry University’s Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing.

The design is stylish and sophisticated yet easy-to-read with use of bright and colourful imagery to break up the copy on each page. The different sections are colour coordinated with section divider images containing a flood of colour to create interest and impact. A three column layout enabled flexibility within the design, giving the ability to add quotes and imagery directly next to relevant content. The design was widely commended by all stakeholders and seen as a fresh and professional approach for such an inspiring and important document.

Design for the Belgrade’s alternative pantomime The Good, The Bad and the Ugly Sisters

Design for the Belgrade’s alternative pantomime The Good, The Bad and the Ugly Sisters

In a spit and sawdust saloon in the Wild West (Midlands), the swing doors are flung open and there stands The Prince, and he’s mean, and he’s got a six shooter. Is he looking for Cinderella? Or just here to stirrup trouble?

A rootin’ tootin’ spaghetti western where the glass slippers have spurs, and the bells chime for high noon. Yeeha!

If you want a fun-filled night out away from the kids this Christmas, then this is the night for you! The show lasts around an hour, so it leaves plenty of time to complete your evening with a few celebratory drinks!

The Belgrade Theatre's brief was to design show branding and artwork that reflected the fun and humorous side to their Christmas production. We designed the posters in a 'Blazzing Saddles’ inspired style, blurring the boundaries between classical Christmas imagery and slap stick style spaghetti western. It will no doubt be a 'cracker' of a show (sorry!)

Design of a new training brochure for Elmhurst Energy

Design of a new training brochure for Elmhurst Energy

Elmhurst is the UK’s largest accreditation scheme for energy assessors. Established in 1993, they have delivered vocational training to thousands of individuals, providing them with the skills and knowledge to build a career in energy assessment and other property related services. 

Their impressive catalogue of over 20 qualification and continual professional development courses offers unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional development, providing a recognised route to a brand new career.

Create Onsight were approached to design a stylish, new training brochure that reflected the quality and professionalism of Elmhurst Energy's industry expertise in training. Utilising the leaf aspect of the logo we create a striking, colourful image that represents Elmhurst’s products and services whilst respecting the company’s green credentials.

The minimalist layout inside, with use of white space and beautiful imagery creates a professional, easy to read and spacious design.

The brochure is distributed at events and training sessions but also available to download via the website in pdf format.

"Training lies at the heart of what we do.
Our personalised approach ensures that everyone learns at their own pace and leaves feeling confident in putting what they’ve learned into practice. All of our trainers are experts in their field with real industry experience, delivering practical learning that is directly transferrable to the industry.

Our courses cater for every level of experience and are delivered through a variety of methods, from classroom-based learning to interactive exercises and site visits. Continual investment in our training means our courses are constantly updated to reflect industry developments and changes to key methodologies.

Elmhurst’s training is recognised across the industry, with many of our courses delivered in partnership with professional bodies such as City & Guilds and the Awarding Body of the Built Environment (ABBE)."

Part of any good brand is about creating consistency. Create Onsight brought life to the leaf icon held within the Elmhurst Energy logo by montaging industry relevant imagery into one image.

Christmas is around the corner! A promotional piece for the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry.

Christmas is around the corner! A promotional piece for the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry.

"The Belgrade is the only professional theatre in Coventry and so we act as both the city and region’s commercial and producing theatre. We are also highly respected for our groundbreaking community and education initiatives. Hamish Glen is the current Artistic Director and Chief Executive.

We present a vibrant programme of produced, visiting and community work in our two auditoria and other spaces, which is informed by a distinctive and brave artistic policy. This policy is designed to cater to and develop the different audiences in and around Coventry, and to raise our profile as a producing theatre. We endeavour to bear witness to our community’s experiences, find a unique voice for the Belgrade in the context of the region and attract leading theatre artists – in short, re-establish the vision, radicalism and internationalism that marked the opening of the theatre in 1958."

Create Onsight designed and produced a 'Christmas Gift Ideas' brand that was used across marketing materials ranging from a dedicated flyer to banner stands and for use online.

Let's have a Game Off! Branding and packaging design.

Let's have a Game Off! Branding and packaging design.

 

Game Off - the card game that pits friends and family members against each other in head to head battles.

Looking for a party board game with a difference? This. Is. It. You can have a Dance Off or a Cook Off, why not an Impression Off? Or a Spell Off? Or an Insult Off? THAT'S WHAT THIS IS! It's a battle royale extravaganza of head-to-head games. So, get your game-face on!

It's a really brilliant party game created by two brothers, Andy & Bob Fletcher. Each box contains a compendium of fun and snappy head-to-head games - battles, designed to create match-ups between unlikely rivals, bringing out that competitive edge in us all.

Creates Onsight were commissioned to design the brand for Game Off from scratch. Taking into consideration the wide and varied target audience (Ages 3-133), a fun, stylish and memorable brand was created giving flexibility across various deliverables from packaging to promotion.

Along the way various character were illustrated in house to represent each of the 5 games categories. The ‘Micmars’ were born!

Look out for Game Off available to buy online in early 2018.
