Cheltenham Design Festival

The Cheltenham Design Festival will be returning this November and we can’t wait!

This years festival theme is all about togetherness and relationships and our Founder & Creative Director, Andy Hussey has been asked to submit a poster for “Design Connects Us” – a screen printing challenge in collaboration with Gloucestershire University.

The poster will be typographic and will be a response to the theme of “relationships”, depicting what that means to him and Lost & Found Creative as a business, as well as the wider community.

Working with students at the university, Andy will screen-print the final design and posters will be exhibited at the university for one week in the lead up to the main festival.

The final designs will form part of the official festival launch which will be happening in November.

Inked: The Graphic Art of the Tattoo

We can’t wait for this talk and to visit the Mshed exhibition…

Branding is about creating something unique in a sea of sameness. It’s about stand-out and individuality — we don’t create brands that blend in, we create them to stand out.

We take our visual cue from a relevant category and then give our designs just enough of a twist to be different. It creates a sense of belonging. And like us, it’s tribal.

Inevitably we brand ourselves by the clothes we wear, the brands we follow, the products we buy, the causes we support, and the people we hang out with. But for a large number of people it goes deeper than this. It goes skin deep.

The West of England Design Forum is hosting an event that celebrates all things ancient and modern in the world of tattooing. It’s obsessiveness within the design community and – unlike the ephemerality of fashion trends – the inky permanence of branding yourself.

Street in the Park, Dorset

Street in the Park, Dorset is a collaboration between Activate Performing Arts and Weymouth College.

The aim and objective of the project is to take over Borough Gardens, Dorchester for one weekend only and host DJ competitions and Banksy-inspired installation performance. Budding young DJs will compete for a cash prize and the opportunity to perform in front of a local audience and a team of music professionals.

Lost & Found had the pleasure of branding this event and providing Activate with promotional literature.

Life Cycles & Landscapes

An ambitious three-year project from 2016-2019, Life Cycles & Landscapes was a partnership between Activate, producers of the Inside Out Dorset festival, artists And Now: and Landscapes for Life, the National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Lost & Found are working with this consortium to document this project and produce a beautifully crafted, hardback book, featuring essays, interviews and project imagery.

Look Again

Slow down, look, look again… Change your perspective, your vision and your story. See your life, your work and your world with fresh eyes.

This is the message of Look Again, a photography and mindfulness company based in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

Look Again offer a plethora of packages for all, ranging from training for business and workshops for charity, to workshops for education and photography retreats.

Lost & Found have been working with Look Again to formalise their brand strategy and create communications to reflect their different product offerings. Look Again will be attending the national mindfulness conference later in the year, so we have been ensuring they have everything they need to get noticed and get their message across.
