Our Role: Logo and brochure design for Festival Event
The inaugural Robert Boyle Science Festival, opened by Sean Sherlock, Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Jobs, Innovation and Department of Education & Skills, was held in Lismore 18th-20th November 2011. It is an initiative of Lismore Heritage Company and additional partners, to have a yearly gathering for both the local and scientific communities offering a menu of scientific lectures, social events and family activities to enjoy over the course of a festival weekend.
Red Heaven Design was approached to design a logo for the festival, which would be used on marketing materials to promote the event including a brochure to be designed by RHD as well.
The logo and brochure design links his birthplace in Lismore Castle, his work in early alchemy and his connection to The Royal Society of Chemistry as one of its founding members. Incorporating the identity within a heraldic shield shape honours the history and setting of subject. The painting of Boyle by Kerseboom was reproduced by permission of Chatsworth Settlement Trustees.
The Science Festival has since evolved into an annual summer school, which has adopted the logo with amendments to the name. For more information on The Robert Boyle Summer School please visit the website here.
The Robert Boyle Science Festival was conceived in summer 2011 as a new and alternative festival for Lismore, Co. Waterford, birth place of Robert Boyle.
It was important to the committee to develop branding that would incorporate the heritage behind Boyles association with Lismore while also conveying the spirit of science & discovery which he was renowned for, and approached David at Red Heaven Design to conceive of a suitable logo and promotional materials for the Festival.
The committee was extremely impressed with the preliminary designs & the level of research and creativity applied. The final design was chosen as it communicated most appropriately the significance and meaning of the Robert Boyle Science Festival and the message it intends to convey.
David is creative, professional and meets the set deadlines. The committee of the Robert Boyle Science Festival has no hesitation in recommending his work.
