Action Stations is a fantastic multi-purpose venue at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. The marketing team there wanted a new brochure designed to specifically promote their corporate and weddings business.
It started with a competitive pitch. We were delighted to win and produced a series of brochure design concepts for the client. From this came many iterations of copywriting, design, photo choices and layout. But it was well worth the time and effort.
The aim was to really deliver something that stands out from the competition, as the events venue marketplace is extremely saturated.
However Action Stations is totally unique and we wanted all the personality and benefits of this venue to shine out clearly in the finished product.
As part of that uniqueness we identified early on that the building itself is iconic. We produced hand drawn illustrations of parts of the building facade to use throughout the brochure to reinforce this message.
This desire to be different was also reflected in the paper chosen to print the 12 page brochure – a touchy feely “rough” matt paper.
The D3 team would like to thank Kerry, who led the project, for all her input. She was a big fan of one of the bold vibrant styles presented at concept stage and we are so pleased with the final results.
Here’s just a few of the pages – if you’re looking for a wedding venue in Portsmouth, something a little different, get in touch with Kerry.
