ONFife event brochure

Our latest design project is a full revamp of the seasonal event brochure for Fife Cultural Trust, which we successfully tendered for in March. An insightful and rewarding design process, working with some great people in Kirkcaldy. We have developed a brand new layout and colour scheme, and reinvented the ON logo with a bright and inviting floral font cover for the summer issue.

A contemporary celebration of the life and work of Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns took place in Edinburgh 25-27 January  http://www.redredrosestreet.co.uk

A wonderful festival that we’re thrilled to work with! In addition to the overall look and feel we developed a set of illustrations to some of Robert Burns’ poems, for a family trail in Rose Street.

For ice cream lovers
