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.

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 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.

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.

Godiva Rocks Coventry! Artwork and design by Create Onsight

Godiva Rocks Coventry! Artwork and design by Create Onsight

Godiva Rocks is an unmissable new musical featuring a host of hit songs from Coventry artists through the decades. From the same team behind the smash-hit Coventry Blitz play, One Night in November, this new musical features 20 classic songs from Coventry artists such as Frank Ifield, Vince Hill, Hazel O’Connor, The Specials, Terry Hall, King, The Primitives and The Enemy. Girl meets boy in Coventry - but nothing, and nobody, is what they seem, all because of one extraordinary night at the Orchid Ballroom, back in December ’64...

Shady financier Leo Freeman’s decision to knock down the Orchid ballroom has far-reaching consequences - as daughter Nell meets the extraordinary Patrick Vernon - and the hunt for a missing tape reveals a history of musical passions and romantic jealousies stretching back to the dawn of musical time.

Create Onsight were once again commissioned by the Belgrade Theatre to design, produce and supply artwork for their upcoming production of Godiva Rocks. 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. The story harks back to 1964 and goes right through to modern day. Heavy emphasis has been placed on the look and feel of the early 60’s music and fashion with the title treatment designed in 60’s diner style. The artwork was translated to banner stands, flyers, posters, badges and outdoor advertising.

Godiva Rocks is a celebration of Coventry music from the 1950s to the present day - the greatest sounds ever from England’s Motor City!

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