Fraserburgh Sports Centre
We are privileged to be involved in creating design work for the newly created Sports Centre at Fraserburgh.
We were asked to create banners for the roadside which complemented the artwork created for the foyer area of the interior. The banners weren’t to advertise the sports centre explicitly – there are no words – but were to become a visual link between the exterior and interior.
At the time of design concept, the artist Carn Standing had almost completed his sculpture we were to base our designs on. We were able to obtain photographs of the work in progress and to then reinterpret this into the official opening invitation and the roadside banners.
Key to this process were the colours in the wings of the sculpture – an array of soft rainbow colours. Specific to the banners, we needed to intensify the colours so ensure that they could be used on the windproof (perforated) material. The invitation is printed on a shiny pearlescent stock which works a treat with the elegant image.
