Silicon Forest Brand Development

We have just completed a new branding project for Silicon Forest, a body comprising specialist technology and innovation companies based in North Nottinghamshire.

The aim of the group is to develop Newark & Sherwood as a centre of excellence for technology, to encourage tech businesses to relocate or to start up in the region.

As a technology hub, Silicon Forest will promote: technological skills, prototyping, networking, and technological business offerings in and around the Newark area. The goal is to get Newark & Sherwood widely recognised as a technology and innovation hub.

Silicon Forest is a collaborative project supported by Invest Newark & Sherwood. The design brief went out to competition in December 2014 with the requirement for design companies to produce full brand guidelines and collateral for use on websites, social media printed display and media.

Our successful brand proposal included:

        1. Logo
        2. Strapline
        3. Colour scheme
        4. Brand usage guidelines

The target audience for the Silicon Forest brand collateral includes, Technical business owners & operators.  Investors, innovators and NGOs, Technically minded business leaders.Commercial Directors looking for somewhere to host a technology business, CTOs looking for staff to employ in a technical business, inventors, innovators and visionaries looking to put their ideas into prototype and production.
