Newport Food Festival goes down a treat
October saw the launch of Newport’s first ever Food Festival, attended by some of the top chefs in Wales, as well as the best food providers from the region and Newport’s most innovative culinary talents. We were proud to be asked to be so heavily involved in it’s branding and designed a whole host of Food Festival related graphics including advertising for both print and web, programmes, signage, and ‘Minichef’ and ‘Teenchef’ identities to name but a few. The branding – with a variety of tasty treats beautifully flaunted on shiny silver forks behind a skyline of the city captured the imagination of the audience as a ‘taste of things to come’ in the festival.
The weekend proved a huge success, kicking off with a festival supper at Newport’s historical indoor market which was transformed (by Icon!) into a spectacular dining venue for 170 people, setting the scene for the Saturday foodie activities. And after working so hard for the festival preparations, it seemed only right that we sit back to enjoy some of the culinary delights on offer at the supper. And we weren’t disappointed… clean plates all round. Looking forward to next year’s festival already!
