Waterlooville Community Forum, in partnership with The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre, received £44,400 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the exciting project, Waterloo to Waterlooville 200.
Led by volunteers from the local community and supported by staff from The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre, Hampshire Libraries and Havant Borough Council, the project focused on researching, recording and celebrating the heritage of Waterlooville over the last 200 years.
The goal of ‘Waterloo to Waterlooville 200’ was to touch the lives of every man woman and child living working or connected with Waterlooville in a celebration involving music, parades, talks, competitions, festival events, children’s activities, markets, schools, community groups, exhibitions and shows.
Waterloo to Waterlooville 200 approached us to help them with the creation of a range of printed materials, including a study pack, a 300x70cm vinyl banner, quiz booklet, photo booklet and a DVD.
As they already had a logo and a colour scheme which had been used on their website and previous marketing materials, it was important that any further artwork had a consistent look, whilst clearly portraying the theme of the project; The Battle of Waterloo.
We used the striking image of The Battle of Waterloo across the Waterloo to Waterlooville 200 artwork. This enabled us to create a consistent look across the varying print products. We chose a selection of typefaces to work with, which we felt worked successfully alongside the style of the artwork.
The overall result of the Waterloo to Waterlooville 200 project was as follows:
- 300x70cm promotional vinyl banner
- A5 quiz booklet
- A4 quiz answer sheet
- 16 page booklet of scripts
- Printed DVD
- 2 page info sheet
- 8 page A4 photo booklet
- Presentation folder – which was to be used as a study pack, and distributed in local schools.
