Prospectus and marketing materials for The Early Learning Camp

Prospectus and marketing materials for The Early Learning Camp

Located on Blackhorse Road in Exhall, Coventry, The Early Learning Camp is a day nursery and pre-school facility for children. Their mission is to create the most engaging and caring early learning environment for children from birth to 8 years guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The organisation aims to:

Provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age

Work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop

Add to the life and well-being of the local community

Offer children and their parents a service that promotes quality and values diversity.


Create Onsight were asked to re-purpose the existing brand after considerable investment in brand new Forest School building at The Early Learning Centre in Exhall, Coventry. The aim of the new building was to encourage more outdoor learning whilst following  the guidelines of the Early Years Foundation.


We were asked to help promote an Open Day where parents could see the new building and facilities. We designed various social media banners for use on Facebook and Twitter and re-designed the existing prospectus. The style of imagery and design within the prospectus has a rural, outdoors feel showing children playing and exploring their environment. The overall design is fresh, modern yet accessible and easy to read.

A new brand and website for illustrator Ann Scott

A new brand and website for illustrator Ann Scott

Ann Scott is a freelance Illustrator based in the UK. After graduating with a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration Ann has 10 plus years experience in the industry with rights sold in China, Japan, S Korea, Turkey, USA, Asia and U.K.

Ann has worked with various publishing houses, licensing companies, galleries and private clients. She specialises in children’s books and art licensing. Clients include Autopress Education, Rockpool Children’s Books, Bramble Kids Publishing, Ladybird Books, Frederic Thomas USA, London Transport Museum... and many more.



I strive to create work that is more than just a picture, filled with personality and a living vibrancy. Illustrations to make people smile and lift spirits. I like to interpret an idea or text in an original appealing way, with a quirky amusing touch.

I pride myself in producing work that goes beyond delivering a brief, exceeding client expectations working within tight deadlines.
— Ann Scott


Create Onsight were approached by Ann to rebrand and redesign her existing website, to bring the overall look and feel up-to-date, and make it responsive to smart pads and phones.

A new logo

The new logo was designed to be timeless and minimalist, with the focus on one of Ann’s hand-drawn characters to give the logo a personal touch. Many illustrators opt for the cliché signature style logo, so to do something different helps the overall brand stand out from the crowd.

A new website

“Portfolio websites are critical for illustrators who want to get exposure for their work and attract new clients. The website is designed as an online portal, easily accessible from any device, with a focus on the artwork rather than the design of the website interface.

That said, the user journey is very important to us so we take care to make sure that everything is one to two clicks from the homepage, including the online enquiry form.

Ann’s work is amazing and now the brand and website does it justice.”

Leigh Cunningham, Designer, Create Onsight

Read All About it! Artwork design for two exciting shows at the old Coventry Evening Telegraph building

Read All About it! Artwork design for two exciting shows at the old Coventry Evening Telegraph building

The iconic, 1950s Coventry Evening Telegraph building is a landmark. Its storeys are heavy with stories. The dusty air of the now abandoned newsroom is thick with them – flying from desk to desk soundtracked by the faint, staccato echo of long-silenced typewriters, dashing to deliver the day’s deadline copy.

Situated just over the road from the Belgrade Theatre – another hub for city storytelling – the Coventry Evening Telegraph building will soon enjoy a new lease of life as a beautiful hotel. But before that, for a brief moment in time, it will become a theatre.

This architectural gem will host two extraordinary, site-specific productions using drama, digital, puppetry and dance to explore the city’s rich history.

One show, City Final, sees the Belgrade Theatre youth and community groups take audiences on an exciting journey against a looming deadline, around the cavernous building and through the last 50 years of Coventry life. There are two different routes for this performance, Route A and Route B. If you are in a wheelchair or have other mobility or access needs we recommend you book for Route B which is on one level and more accessible. For more information about the different routes, visit the City Final show page.

While Mercurial Dance’s show, Retold, offers audiences a unique cabaret-style show inspired by their very own, personal memories. The action plays out in the Telegraph’s foyer where generations of people came to share their news with the paper.

Hold the presses, and become part of the story as you join us on this thrilling journey through time.

These performances are part of the Coventry Great Place project supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England, Coventry University, University of Warwick, Coventry City Council and Coventry Business Improvement District.


Create Onsight were commissioned by the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry to design and produce artwork for two shows, Retold and City Final. The brief was to create a design that would promote the theatrical dance aspect of the shows, but also promote the one off use of the unusual location, the old Coventry Telegraph building.

The typographic style within the title treatment is inspired directly from the original Coventry Telegraph Newspaper masthead, whilst the imagery of a falling performer was superimposed in Photoshop. Take a look below to see how we created the artwork from montaging various images together to create the desired effect.

The finished design was translated into posters, website banners, outdoor advertising, flyers, banner stands and lamp post banners.

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

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!)

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.

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.

A snippet from Elmhurst Energy's training brochure

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.
