Coventry University Sustainability Annual Report 2017-2018

Coventry University Sustainability Annual Report 2017-2018

“Our vision to ‘Create Better Futures’ weaves through our activities at the University, as a centre for academic and research excellence, enterprise and innovation; and in the local and global communities that we are connected to.

This year we have continued to grow as a University and also in our approach to sustainability. This report outlines key achievements and recognises we are uniquely placed in what we can offer to society; through beneficial research, education and skills, environmental benefit and our physical presence in the community.

This report highlights exceptional work already taking place across the University Group, with an appreciation this can go much further and have even greater impact.”

Professor John Latham

Vice-Chancellor and CEO, Coventry University Group Extraordinary Professor, Stellenbosch University


Our brief from Coventry University was to design an Annual Report that demonstrated the Universities’ commitment to sustainability and the environment.

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.

'Over The Top' Christmassy comedy artwork design

'Over The Top' Christmassy comedy artwork design

This year’s annual alternative pantomime, Over The Top, is a heart-stopping, pun-filled adventure, overflowing with uplifting Christmassy comedy.

The year is 1918 and the troops on the Western Front have had a surprise visit from a fearless group of suffragettes who’ve come to perform a show to lift their spirits. But with bullets whizzing over their heads and howitzers shaking the ground, the troupe get stuck behind enemy lines and a rescue mission is needed. Hashtag #FirstWorldWarProblems.

Sergeant Beauty and a crack team of daredevils soon set off on the perilous journey to rescue them, but will any of them make it back to Blighty for Christmas?

Featuring an all-female cast, this show really is set in No Man’s Land. But fear not, these suffragettes definitely have our vote, and we’ll be rifling through the joke book to make sure the performance doesn’t tank.

If you’re looking for a fun-filled night out away from the kids this Christmas then look no further!


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 Over The Top. We designed the show artwork to appeal to a fun loving audience, blurring the boundaries between classic Christmas and First World War imagery!

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.

Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School prospectus design

Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School prospectus design

“There have been Catholic schools on the site at Potters Green Road since 1958. The schools were built to serve the rapidly expanding Catholic community in the area after the Second World War. Cardinal Wiseman is a unique school with international links in Europe and Malawi. The school is an active member of the Romero Academy within seven partner primary schools which helps all young people to succeed in their learning from the age of 2-19. Staff at the school work hard to provide a safe, happy learning environment for every young person so that they can develop a love of learning as they prepare for an active working life.”


 

Create Onsight were commissioned by Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School to modernise, update and re-design their school prospectus and marketing materials. The document is used as the main ‘take home’ literature for adults looking to place their children at the school.

The school has a rich heritage dating back from 1949 that was reflected in a simple, classy, timeless look and feel. The design uses large imagery of real children working and enjoying classes and other activities within the school alongside informative text on academic areas.

We also translated the new look to various banner stands and large format banners used to give examples of the schools outstanding performance.

A new logo, brand and website design for Bedroom Gallery

A new logo, brand and website design for Bedroom Gallery

Branding isn't just about visual imagery. Branding is the whole perception from hearing the name of a company or seeing its logo and messaging consistently across all marketing platforms. Designing the imagery and symbols which make a brand recognisable and transferring the appropriate message is a job with great responsibility.

Bedroom Gallery - Bringing Ideas to Life.

"We specialise in creating the perfect bedroom for you. Being the most private and personal room in your home means each design we create will capture your desires. Our designers work to your brief and help to create an individual style and a look you absolutely love. Luxury Bedroom Interiors and home office furniture done your way."

Design of a new logo


At Create Onsight we understand your brand not only needs to look great but also target your preferred audience and produce return on your investment.
— Leigh Cunningham, Creative Director

 

Create Onsight were asked to design and roll-out a new brand for Bedroom Gallery that reflected the quality of their products and services whilst targeting their desired high-end demographic.

The final logo design is both stylish and sophisticated yet understated and elegant. The ornate coil within the rectangle is subtly both a ‘b’ and a ‘g’ without being over contrived and obvious. This simple, sophisticated approach is often used by high-end brands from fashion chains to boutique hotels, where less is more and simplicity speaks of confidence and heritage.

The new Bedroom Gallery icon was then used to create a pattern motive, or visual language, that was applied across marketing collateral from business cards to wall livery and the website, creating consistency and brand recognition.

Website design and build

As part of the new brand launch Create Onsight designed and built a fully responsive website showing the various product ranges Bedroom Gallery has on offer. The website is designed to enable users to access information quickly and easily with heavy emphasis on inspiring product photography. Product pages are designed predominantly for mobile and smart pad usage with scrollable pages and slideshow photography of ranges. The overall look of the website is simple and elegant yet heavily product-focussed to encourage enquiries and ultimately sales.

Show artwork for the Belgrade Theatre's production of We’ll Live and Die in These Towns

Show artwork for the Belgrade Theatre's production of We’ll Live and Die in These Towns

"We’ll Live and Die in These Towns is a gritty and compelling new musical drama driven by the adrenaline-rush energy and working class poetry of songs from The Enemy’s number one debut album.

A young rock musician, Argy, sits on the cusp of the big time only to suffer a crisis of confidence hours before the biggest performance of his life in a huge homecoming concert.

His manager, unable to convince him to sing, sends him away to re-visit his past and decide his future. So Argy walks the streets of his hometown, visiting family and friends in a bid to make sense of his feelings and find a way forward.

Argy’s worked his whole life for this break. But now it’s here, can he face down his fears and seize the moment?

We’ll Live and Die in These Towns comes from the pen of acclaimed Coventry writer, Geoff Thompson and is directed by Hamish Glen. It’s designed by Patrick Connellan and The Enemy’s Tom Clarke is the show’s Musical Director."


Create Onsight were once again commissioned by the Belgrade Theatre to design, produce and supply artwork for their upcoming production of We’ll Live and Die in These Towns. As a home grown production the pressure to sell tickets is greater than ever, so it was of paramount importance that the design was pitched to the correct audience, muscial theatre lovers.

The artwork was translated to banner stands, flyers, posters, badges and outdoor advertising.



Watch the slideshow below to see how we created the artwork:
