Belgrade Theatre What's On Spring/Summer 2018 brochure design

Belgrade Theatre What's On Spring/Summer 2018 brochure design

The Belgrade Theatre was built in 1958 as part of the reconstruction of Coventry after World War II. Holding 858 in its two-tier main auditorium, and 250-300 in the flexible, new second space, B2, it remains one of the largest regional producing theatres in Britain.

The Belgrade acquired its name in recognition and thanks for a gift of timber from the Serbian capital city of Belgrade, that was used in the construction of the auditorium. The Belgrade soon became renowned for its programme of exciting new drama and early Company members at the Theatre included Trevor Nunn, Ian McKellen, John Gunter, Joan Plowright, Michael Crawford, Frank Finlay and Leonard Rossiter, with Arnold Wesker and David Turner among the new dramatists.

The Theatre remains the major arts and cultural facility in Coventry and the only building-based professional producing theatre company in the city. It aims to present a broad spectrum of excellent work and produces a wide range of shows.


Whats On Spring/Summer Season 2018

"As you can imagine, we’re absolutely thrilled with the news that Coventry has been awarded City of Culture 2021. It’s an incredible opportunity for the city, and we’re very much looking forward to playing a major part in the year’s events.

Speaking of exciting future events, this summer all of our community groups will come together to work on a large-scale production in the former Coventry Evening Telegraph building opposite the Theatre. The production will play alongside a show from Mercurial Dance, and I’m sure it will be a fantastic spectacle.

Elsewhere in the season we have the usual mix of drama, music, musicals and comedy. I hope there’s plenty in there for you to enjoy, whatever your taste, and I look forward to seeing you back at the Belgrade this spring."

Hamish Glen, Artistic Director, Belgrade Theatre

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.

A striking book cover design for The Dark Side of University

A striking book cover design for The Dark Side of University

“University is supposed to be a life-changing experience and the very pinnacle of educational excellence, but what happens if the dream turns in to a nightmare? What you're about to read is the true story of my life as an undergraduate student studying at the University of Portsmouth in 2008 - 2011.”

Create Onsight were approached to design a book cover for the new publication, The Dark Side of University. The brief was to depict a University in two different extremes to reflect the edgy content of the book. The cover design was created by montaging together over 20 different images to create a striking and intriguing image.

See below an animation of how we put the final design together using Adobe Creative Suite including InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.

A new approach to HR - Delphi People Service Centre and People Portal

A new approach to HR - Delphi People Service Centre and People Portal

The face of Human Resources within business has changed dramatically in the past ten years. Today's modern HR professionals are more strategic than ever, always looking to align with the overall business goals and provide a service to their client base, the people within the organisation.

Delphi Technologies are no exception to this with a forward thinking HR department, always looking to improve services and deliver above and beyond to meet the business goals. In short, HR is defined by both the strategic value it offers and the services it provides to the business.

Create Onsight were commissioned to brand and design marketing materials for a new structured HR service within Delphi Technologies, one of the world’s leading suppliers of automotive parts globally. The HR department now operate under the brand of the 'People Service Centre'. The People Service Centre supports all colleagues in line with company policy and legislation to:

Protect the business - by ensuring that they are legally compliant and consistent across the organisation.

Free managers from administrative and HR tasks, so that they can focus on their fields of expertise.

Create Onsight worked with Delphi Technologies to come up with a consistent, clear and dynamic brand to inform people within the business of how the new department operates. The brand was rolled out across multiple sites within the UK and across various platforms from, eshots and internal on screen communications to posters, banners stands, information cards and table top cards.

A major part of the work involved the design, build and implementation of an internal HR Portal where colleagues can access information ranging from policies and procedure to companywide events.

What is the People Portal?

The Delphi People Portal is a one-stop-shop for Delphi employees and staff to access policies, documentation and HR based content. The system is fully responsive meaning it is accessible via desktop, tablet and mobile devices both on and off site. The People Portal was designed and built by Create Onsight within SharePoint 365 which means access for users on smart phones and pads from anywhere.

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!)
