Rhyl and Prestatyn Funtime 2011
I actually found working with Sarah (Lead designer) a pleasure. Her designs were fresh, innovative and she seemed to get the look I was aiming for. The copywriter Karen was also fantastic and knew the area well enough to provide detailed copy with little input from me. I would not hesitate to work with Splinter in the future and would definitely recommend them to colleagues. The brochure has been well received by Councillors and tourism colleagues and is being distributed through Visit Wales campaigns, various marketing campaigns and through the network of tourism information centres.

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.
