Climatlantic

Commissioned by Merseytravel www.climatlantic.co.uk is a fun and easy to use website for Primary and Secondary schoolchildren, teachers, parents and guardians. The website and games promote carbon reduction activity and environmental awareness, such as turning off lights, using public transport or planting a tree.

Climatlantic is a partnership of European countries: Ireland, UK, Portugal, Spain and France, located along the Atlantic coastline and working together to reduce their collective carbon footprints. Visitors to the website’s homepage are invited to make a pledge and help save the planet. After pledging you/schools are automatically sent advice to help fulfill that pledge.

The multi-lingual website has been designed with help from Holy Spirit School in Merseyside and Connah’s Quay High school in Flintshire. The children choose the colourful funky style of the website, the cool animal characters, including their names and also helped develop the game concepts. Climatlantic’s eco-guides are called Ollie the orangutan, Ula the parrot and Roofus the polar bear and appear throughout the site and games. Thanks to the fabulous illustrator Tracy who helped bring the children’s ideas to life.

Rhyl and Prestatyn Funtime 2011

We were happy to add a new tourism publication to our collection by winning the contract to produce the 2011 version of the Rhyl and Prestatyn funtime brochure for Denbighshire County Council Tourism department.

Rhyl and Prestatyn are undergoing large-scale regeneration programs in an attempt to encourage people to return to these seaside resorts and relive those childhood memories. So it was important that we balanced magical childhood nostalgia with the area’s new products in our design, copy and by using accent photography to tell a story and evoke a sense of place.

We selected a blend of rich images representing the magnificent landscape and people interacting with it. Our copywriter, photographer and designer visited Rhyl and Prestatyn and we selected and took a range of images that represented not only the different areas of Rhyl and Prestatyn, and the activities that they offer, but the diversity of the target audience as well.

We have just got the hard copies of the latest Annual Review and Accounts that we have designed for Edge Hill. They look great, are printed to high environmental standards and have been really well received by the client.

In addition to the Annual Review we have helped Edge Hill update their visual identity, and are currently completing the Undergraduate Prospectus which should be available in a couple of weeks.

LHT Annual Report one of the big four

The National Tenant Organisations have recently published a joint report reviewing housing associations’ annual reports. The report reviews a sample of 257 annual reports from a cross section of landlords. All the reports were scored and we are delighted to be one of only four landlords nationally that received the maximum five points for our Yearbook.

What the tenants’ organisations liked in particular was our use of transparent and easy to understand performance graphs.

“Thank you for all your work on this and for helping us to make it a success – I have other housing associations calling me and asking for copies of it and the TSA have used it in a report on good practice.”
Andrew Bullock, Communications Officer

It uses its spaces to display talent from all creative disciplines, including visual art, music, literature, dance, and live art.

Clwydian Range brand development

Clwydian Range, upland frontier of North Wales, is an unmistakable chain of purple heatherclad summits topped by Britain’s most dramatically situated hillforts and linked by Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail. Famous for its stunning views, this is one of the least discovered yet most welcoming and easiest to explore of the UK’s finest landscapes.

Splinter, in partnership with Hi-Clarity Communications, have just delivered a comprehensive branding development for the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Consultation sessions were held with stakeholders, staff and local businesses to ensure that local ownership of the process was shared throughout.

In particular the following outputs have been delivered:
- Brand Review
- Communications Strategy
- Brand Guidelines
- Sense of Place Toolkit
