Accelerate – Brand Launch

We were thrilled to have been asked to create a new brand identity for a project which supports businesses in North Somerset.

Funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund. ‘Accelerate, Supporting Business in North Somerset’ project partners include North Somerset Council, The Food and Drink Forum, North Somerset Enterprise Agency and Weston College.

Our aim with the logo was to demonstrate the link between growth, industry and North Somerset. We explored a number of permutations before focussing in on a simple, bold and dynamic identity.

The scheme launched in 2022 and offered a programme of free dedicated skills sessions and masterclasses.

Delivered by industry experts and trainers, they focussed on themes that would support local business, including business planning, digital support, sustainability, green agenda, mental health and wellbeing, sales and business planning for North Somerset employers and employees

The agency managed the development of the brand identity, through to its rollout across branding, digital and social media as well as merchandise.
