Ashford Borough Council — Create 2019 branding and website refresh

Create festival is a family-friendly, free, one day event set in Ashford’s Victoria Park, and is in its 24th year. With four music stages, it is one of the biggest free music festivals in the South East.

But Create isn’t just for one day!

Organised by Ashford Borough Council, their support for artists continues all week long. Create Platform is a week-long series of arts events and activities in and around Ashford taking place from 15 – 21 July 2019.

We were asked by ABC to re-think the branding for this firm favourite in the community, and in the process enable Create Platform, the festival’s sister event, to get equal brand billing. And so a modern 3d typography inspired brand identity has been designed to raise awareness and promote Create to a younger audience, and create a buzz on social media.

The online presence inevitably also needed some TLC, and this part of the project was made possible in collaboration with our brilliant web developer friends at Dewar/Green who have brought our web design to life and built a responsive website which included full listings for both Create Festival and Create Platform.
