New print design: Shine Awards 2015

We’ve been involved in the Shine School Media Awards for around a year and a half now.

Back in January 2014, I met with the chair and lead print sponsor and talked about things we could do for the awards and that led to a logo, print brochure for the award winners and in January this year, a new website.

It’s been a lovely project to be involved with, not least because the team behind the project are so enthusiastic about embracing fresh ideas and keeping as up to date as possible. The entrants are mostly in their mid-teens, so probably about as savvy as you can get in terms of consuming and producing digital media, so it has been a fascinating exercise keeping up with them and finding out how they responded to the event.

Happily a meeting shortly afterwards with the Shine team went well and we joined the team.

We recently completed work on a lovely piece of print for the International Pole and Line Foundation.
