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.
