International Print Conference Marks 10th Anniversary
14th May 2013
The agency responsible for branding the first ever 3D Printshow in London in 2012 has been appointed to create the identity for this year’s exhibition – which in another first will be going global.
Studio View, which has offices in Lincoln and London, has been commissioned to create the branding and visuals for the 3D Printshow at the Business Design Centre in London on 7th November, at the Carrousel Du Louvre in Paris on 15th November and in New York (details to be confirmed).
2013 marks a busy year for the agency and its 10th year in business. Directors Jim O’Leary (32) and Wayne Christian (32) said they’ve been lucky enough to work on some major national projects.
“Over the past decade we’ve been involved in some really interesting work including installing an 18-screen plasma TV wall for HSBC at Canary Wharf in London, designing a website and mobile apps for London’s largest mincab company Addison Lee and rebranding Napier Turbochargers, which is a world leader in the design, manufacture and support of industrial turbochargers.
“We’ve also recently designed the website for an exciting project to find the new Marilyn Monroe. The contestants, who get through to the final stages, as voted for by the public, will be invited to audition for a role in a new film about her life.”
“We’ve worked really hard to get to this point and we’re really pleased to be celebrating our 10th anniversary this year. Being appointed to work on the 3D Printshow again and taking it to Paris and New York is really the icing on the cake for us.”
Founder of the 3D Printshow Kerry Hogarth said: “Working with Jim, Wayne and the whole team at Studio View is straightforward. You give them a brief and they instantly interpret what you need into a brand that has a strong identity. They have played a central role in the success of the 3D Printshow and I am looking forward to working with them again.”
Studio View specialises in graphic and web design, from flyers and brochures to corporate branding, marketing campaigns and websites. As part of their birthday celebrations they’re also undertaking up to £2,000 worth of work for free for one lucky Lincolnshire-based charity.
Wayne explained: “Since graduating from the University of Lincoln and setting up a studio in the city we’ve received a lot of support locally so we wanted to give something back to the community.
“The work could be a free website designed from scratch or redesigned, or a brochure which could be used to illustrate what the charity does and help with fundraising. We’ve received a lot of interest so far and it’s going to be hard to pick one charity out of so many worthy causes.”
The offer of help to local charities isn’t the firm’s first foray into giving something back. The pair also spends time developing the content for the university’s Interactive Design course and teaching budding designers, and their six staff are all graduates from the University of Lincoln.
Wayne added: “We’ve found some excellent home-grown talent in Lincoln and this has helped establish Studio View as the agency of choice for businesses from Lincoln and London to Chicago. Our aim over the next ten years is to stay as a small, close-knit team which can be proud of the creative and innovative work we produce.”
