Apples and Snakes promoting Spoke:
A season of spoken word
Apples and Snakes describe themselves as:
England's leading organisation for performance
poetry and spoken word.
They work at national and international level,
but also run local initiatives and community
projects. In 2012 they won the tender to
coordinate Spoke, a year-long programme
by the London Legacy Development Corporation
offering opportunities to participate in spoken
word events in and around the newly reopened
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Create branding, plus posters, flyers and
web banners for three special Spoke events,
each based on a theme: water, earth and air.
The events featured a range of high
profile poets, including John Hegley
and Michael Rosen. So the campaign
had to reflect the corresponding theme
while also highlighting the involvement
of these spoken word legends.
Inspired by the themes and the Olympic
Park location, quirky, colourful designs
showed people active in their environment,
communicating both the energy of the events
and regenerated local area.
We have been delighted with the work that
Georgina has done for us. Not only can she
transform a complex brief into a piece of clear,
coherent design, but she is also able to work
to deadlines that are often on the tight side.
She combines an artist's eye for colour and
composition with a professional approach
and a pleasant manner. Definitely recommended.
