Design of outdoor advertising for the Belgrade Theatre

Design of outdoor advertising for the Belgrade Theatre

It’s really quite simple. This is a play (with songs) based on the book The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat, by Eric Idle (who was in Monty Python), inspired by the poem, The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear. Got it?

This surreal and brilliantly chaotic new musical follows the Owl and the Pussycat on their mission to save the world and defeat the dastardly Firelord, his imaginary dragon, Pyron, and his henchmen, Flicker and Brimstone. With Professor Bosh’s help, they seek the magical Bong Tree which will lead them all to safety in the Land of Bong. Their adventures take them across the Gromboolian Plains, down a river of jam, and over a frozen rainbow – helped on their way by a host of wonderful characters including a resurrected dinosaur skeleton, the Pie-Rats and a dancing Pig in sunglasses.

This fantastically imaginative new musical adaptation of Eric Idle’s best-selling book is a celebration of nonsense, and is sure to enthral and delight children aged 6+, their families and anyone with a sense of fun and wonder.

Create Onsight were commissioned by the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry to illustrate their upcoming performance of The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat, by Eric Idle. The brief was to create artwork that would promote the show in the style reminiscent of the infamous Monty Python animations by Terry Gilliam. The typographic style is also inspired by his work.

The show is now being advertised on lampost banners on the main roads into Coventry city centre and at out of town shopping areas.

A new brand for Mangrove Data

A new brand for Mangrove Data

"Mangrove Data is a Data Management Consultancy based out of the West Midlands in the UK. We have experience in Data Architecture and Strategy, Master Data Management, Data Warehousing, Data Quality, Business Intelligence, Azure Cloud services and SharePoint.
We are highly professional and focused on delivering products and services that bring value to the client (and repeat business for us)."

Create Onsight were approached to create a new brand and website for Mangrove Data that projected a fresh, interesting and creative approach for their business. The brief was to include iconography that hinted at both data streams and growth inspired from the business name ‘Mangrove’. The chosen logo not only includes both of these aspects but also a subliminal ‘M’ in the data stream icon arrangement.

The use of grey and green creates a striking and modern colour palette that was also carried across stationery, business cards and a new website.

A fresh new look for Coventry University's Leavers Info Pack

A fresh new look for Coventry University's Leavers Info Pack

"You may already know your future aspirations or you may want support to identify your interests, skills and the opportunities available to you. The Faculty of Arts and Humanities Employability Unit aims to help you navigate this next year and support you in your decision." 

Our brief from Coventry University's Faculty of Arts and Humanities was to refresh and modernise the Information Pack for University Leavers. The pack provides students with guidance notes, a summary of support and services that are available when they leave, as well as information on the ways in which the University keeps in contact.

“Your life and career is a journey and we wish you the best in your discovery."

The design is clean and minimal with the use of quality, support imagery to create a spacious and easy to read document. The subsections are clearly defined by colour to enable the reader to access the information quickly whilst retaining a modern, approachable look and feel throughout.

Ri-dick-ulously good artwork for the Belgrade Theatre!

Ri-dick-ulously good artwork for the Belgrade Theatre!

"The Belgrade’s annual alternative pantomime returns to B2 this Christmas in the shape of Private Dick Whittington – a film noir spoof, loaded with so many bad jokes it’s ri-dick-ulous!

Private Dick is in a tight spot – there’s a dead dame in his office and he’s lost a suitcase full of cash. But with the help of a talking cat, a mysterious mayor and a haphazard hypnotist, he might just find the clues he needs.

Expect an avalanche of punishing puns and groan-worthy gags as our hero chases a stolen gemstone whilst battling sudden shipwrecks and suspicious snake-charmers. From the Coventry docks to a Moroccan palace – almost every expense has been spared in this jolly yuletide jape, designed especially to amuse and delight groups of grown-ups.

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 Coventry's brief was to design show branding and artwork that reflected the fun and humorous side to their Christmas production entitled Private Dick Whittington. We designed the show artwork to appeal to a fun loving audience, blurring the boundaries between classical Christmas imagery and a film noir style bumbling detective!

The finished design was translated into posters, outdoor advertising, flyers, banner stands and online website banners for social media.

See below how we created the final artwork by a montaging various images together.
