Blasting off at the South West 2017 Business Showcase

Our team had a brilliant day at the South West 2017 Business Showcase on 11th October at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol. It was a great networking opportunity and we talked to lots of amazing people who we hope to work with in the future. The event also marked the unveiling of our new brand identity and the launch of the yellow Burleigh Create rocket.

Join us at the South West 2017 Business Showcase

Join us at the South West 2017 Business Showcase on 11th October at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol. The Business Showcase South West is the largest free business event in the South West of England. It is an exhibition and networking opportunity, offering a day-long series of powerful business activities. Come and meet the team, we would love to talk.

A little piece of history

Early in the year upon relocating to new offices we asked the Letter Press Collective if they would like to house two amazing Albion Presses, a large beauty made by Jonathan and Jerimiah Barrett of Finsbury in 1832. The platen is 18×24″ and it will be an amazing addition to their collection. The smaller Albion is made by Harrild and Sons in 1864 with a platen size of 11×16″. Both presses belong to Burleigh Create who have been managing print in Bristol for over one hundred years. It’s quite possible that Burleigh have owned the presses from new. Greg Corrigan one of Burleigh’s directors was keen that they return to near Lewins Mead where they started life.

Burleigh Create attends the London Design Festival 2017

Last week London Design Festival celebrated it’s fifteenth birthday. Missed out? Here is a pic of one of our team members enjoying an immersive coloured light experience – the ‘Reflection Room’ by designer Flynn Talbot at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Using 3D illustration to enhance your product literature

We have recently been working on a number of projects that have required 3D illustrations. They are an ideal way to create a visual image that can not be created with photography. Products can be originated from supplied CAD files and brought to life with creative rendering. Cut away sections can be introduced or exploded areas that show technical detail. They are an ideal way to demonstrate the application of industrial products and can also be used in print and digital formats.

A busy day out at the Southampton Boat Show 2017

Burleigh Create took a trip to the Southampton Boat Show last week to see our work on display and catch up with a number of clients. We are always interested to follow up our projects and this was a great opportunity to see a number of stands. Seeing a stand on location also gives us a chance to plan and develop new ideas for future projects.

A rocket fuelled Friday

It’s a totally yellow rocket fuelled Friday. Our promotional beer mats have just landed back in the studio. If you need promotional ideas or concepts that will raise your business profile for a campaign or a future event we can help.

Why so yellow?

People ask us why Burleigh Create turned yellow. There is a good reason, so let us explain.

When designing our new brand identity we looked at a multitude of colours and how they worked together. We also looked into the psychology of colour and how it can change our mood, appetite and energy levels. In corporate design, colours are critical to building the brand’s image. A specific colour scheme used effectively and consistently throughout all marketing materials creates a unified and familiar look, and associates those colours with a company. By using colour psychology, you can send a positive or negative message, encourage sales, calm a crowd, or make ones heart beat faster.

Yellow is recognised as creative, young, visible, bright, lively, cheerful, light, curious, eye-catching and attention-grabbing. It is also associated with comfort, liveliness, intellect, happiness, energy, laughter, happiness and optimism. So our colour theme reflects the brand, our personality and our attitude.
