We Always Have Festival Fever!
When it comes to event management and creative installations, we do cool s#!@
Our motto is “don’t just think outside the box, redesign the box”, so we invest hours of research, strategy and imagination to transform events into truly unforgettable experiences. In recent months we’ve helped the University of Hull to deliver the British Science Festival, which included everything from poetry written by artificial intelligence systems to robot waiters serving drinks, which wowed guests that included to businesspeople and scientists. Around this time we also helped the university to spread awareness of its My Plastic Pledge campaign, which encourages people to think about how much plastic waste they create and then drastically reduce it through manageable lifestyle changes. We did this by constructing a massive turtle made from unwanted plastic, as you do.
This year in particular has been a busy one for us, with event organisers of all shapes and sizes hiring us to get involved in some way or another. HullBID wanted to take their popular Hull Street Food Nights to a whole new level, so we designed tons of awesome signage, put in place some fun entertainment in the form of our own Orange Man, and organised a fully branded rickshaw that gave people free rides to Trinity Square. The result was a very busy monthly festival, with visitors treating themselves to mouth-watering creations from some of the region’s finest independent street food vendors.
Pride in Hull was amazing fun too, as we were asked to design, build and install large freestanding letters that spelled out the event name. Whilst the exteriors of these letters were painted in rainbow colours, the interiors were left hollow so that they could be filled with balloons, which were then secured with a metal mesh. Taking pride of place (pun intended) outside the festival shop on Humber Street prior to the event and then in Queen’s Gardens on the day itself, they proved a very popular addition that attracted countless smiling selfie-takers.
This month we’ve been super busy with a real range of activity, sponsoring the Speak Easy stage at the Humber Street Sesh whilst building the Zany Races track inside Princes Quay, which invites kids to race around the bottom deck of the shopping centre surrounded by cartoon environments. Seriously, if this kind of thing had been around when we were kids, our childhoods would have been so much cooler.
If you have an event in the pipeline, or perhaps at the moment it’s just a pipe dream, we’d love to hear about it. From adding a little extra flair to your existing plan, to providing entire concepts and then building them from scratch, we’re always up for the challenge. And that’s not to mention our graphic design, web development, photography, videography, social media, copywriting and PR services, which when combined together will ensure that your event or festival gets widespread coverage and is bursting at the seams with satisfied customers and mesmerised guests.
