Love Beyond the Rainbow
How do you represent diversity and unity through visual language? You deconstruct the rainbow.
Partnering with BALTIC, Northern Stage and Sage Gateshead, Sail started a brand revolution and helped define their national positioning, strategy, identity and engagement.
The festival’s aim was to break boundaries, start dialogue and have political purpose, along with providing queer artists opportunities to showcase and perform.
Our idea focussed on ‘deconstruction’ using the LGBTQ flags to represent connections, culture and pride. The bold colours, shapes and fluid compositions underpin constant disruption, exploration and experimentation. The identity is a call to action, one that gathers communities to explore and celebrate LGBTQ culture. We worked with Curious on a brand strategy, visual identity, roll-out and campaigns. Curious are now an Arts Council Award winning brand, and recognised as the largest event of its kind in the North East, with strengthened positioning and reach nationally.
