The Globe is a 1930s art-deco theatre and music venue that closed down in 1997. In its heyday, the Globe had the honour of hosting such acts as the Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Chuck Berry. It is now being renovated, revitalised and reopened by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council. When it opens in 2019, it will be the biggest music venue located between Newcastle and Leeds, offering a capacity of 3000 people.
“The work was not only of an extremely high standard and your team quickly aligned imagery to the brief, but it was also turned around in a very short period of time. I have to say it’s one of the best examples of a design response to a brief, within an extremely short time scale, that I have experienced. We are just in the final throws of appointing/partnering with an international operator and as yet it’s unclear as to whether we will use this imagery in the final execution of the project, but it’s fair to say that this work and materials allowed us to present a proposition to the market place in an extremely positive way via the brochure, the micro site and the supporting imagery, and certainly contributed to what I hope will be a successful conclusion to the search for an operator for the Globe project.”

We were tasked with developing a visual identity including a visioning document for this striking venue. The visual identity was developed to reference the art-deco heritage whilst being relevant for a modern audience.
