Create Longridge – the unique, annual arts competition – is taking place across the town in July, and having recently gained ‘New Event of the Year’ at the Ribble Valley Stars in Tourism Awards (which delighted everyone here) it looks to become even bigger this year.

We’ve worked closely with the team at Create Longridge to establish a completely new and original brand identity for the campaign. Founder and Managing Director of T—PW Mark Murray was thrilled when he was told the project had been nominated for the award commenting, “We were delighted to be a finalist and then when we heard we’d won, it was brilliant and a great testament to all the Team.”

.

“We’re really proud to be part of the Create Longridge project and have the work that we’ve produced, acknowledged with this award.”

.

Create Longridge is a unique arts competition that will take place on 15 July 2017 throughout the historic town. It’s calling on artists of all ages and abilities to enter the one-day event, in which each gets the chance to win up to £2,000 in prize money.

.

Last year the event attracted hundreds of visitors to the town and showcased the creative talents of the entrants as they captured the iconic sights of Longridge on canvas.

.

All the artworks created on the day were displayed and judged in the Longridge Gallery and put on sale, with half the proceeds going towards staging the event for this year.

Owner of the Longridge Gallery and member of the Create Longridge project team, Alistair Sheret commented:

.

“Create Longridge was delighted to have won Best New Event at the Tourism Awards. One of the major factors underpinning the event’s success was the branding and communications message designed by T—PW Design Consultants.”

.

“T—PW’s understanding and interpretation of the client brief was superb. In addition to its branding work T—PW built the Create Longridge website which became the central point for communicating with artists, sponsors and visitors.”

.

“Without the skill of T—PW, Create Longridge would not have been able to fulfil its central objective of driving increased footfall to the town’s businesses. The entire Create Longridge team would recommend T—PW without hesitation.”
