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

'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.

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.

The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat illustration and design

The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat illustration and design

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. Take a look below to see how we created the artwork from montaging various images together to create the desired effect.

The artwork was used for all marketing materials from the seasonal brochure through to social media, posters, leaflets, banner stands, the website and outdoor advertising.

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.
