Getting active on Castle Field!

This Saturday saw the return of Sweat Southsea's Fitness Festival on Castle Field. This inclusive event celebrates a healthy lifestyle and is aimed at inspiring people to have fun and get more active in daily life.

The sun was shining all day and the crowds came out in force to participate in a wide range of activities including trampolining, TRX classes, Power Plate, Duathlon, pilates, yogs,five aside football and a whole host of activities for kids. The healthy food market also made sure everyone was well fuelled!


Hampshire Food Festival 2018

Food and Illustrations. Two of our most favourite things here at Starfish! So, we were rather cheery when it was decided to go with an illustrative approach to this year's Hampshire Food Festival materials.

A comprehensive suite of images was created including beetroot, lavender, grapes and salmon and appear on the pull up panels, preview leaflet and throughout the Programme of Events which will be released later in the month.


The festival itself spans the month of July and comprises over 60 events throughout the County.

Working with Visit Chichester

Starfish was delighted to receive a call from Visit Chichester toward the end of last year asking if we would help them produce the new printed Guide for 2018. Whilst the timescale was extremely tight, we undertook the advert sales and exceeded the target set. We also overhauled the design of the guide, giving it more of a brochure like feel with added editorial pages and more imagery to convey just what the area has to offer in terms of culture, sport and history. 

The cover illustration reflects the Visit Chichester theme of City, Country and Coast with separate elements of the illustration used throughout the brochure.

The meerkats roll into town...

After several weeks of illustration work and production, MetroBus Uk's meerkat bus finally rolled into Crawley Town. 

We were joined by the local press, Mayor Brian Quinn and members of staff from MetroBus UK and the Nature Centre at Tilgate Park to view the cheeky characters that adorn this single decker. The bus is designed to promote the Centre which houses over 100 different species including, of course, a mob of meerkats. 

This was a delightful project to work on and we were thrilled that it went down well, especially with those that work with the meerkats every day.
