Greenwich Summer Sounds

Festival branding for one of the UK’s most iconic heritage settings.


Bringing the Sound of Summer to the UK’s naval capital.

Greenwich Summer Sounds is an extraordinary music festival held at London's Old Royal Naval College, a cultural gem in Maritime Greenwich. With 9 world-class artists and 28,000 attendees, it's an unmissable event spanning 4 unforgettable nights.

We created an impactful brand identity to help launch the offering.

This research and development phase fueled our agency's design-driven enthusiasm. We faced a pristine canvas, adorned solely with a world-class lineup and the awe-inspiring silhouette of the UK's iconic skyline. With meticulous exploration, we charted diverse routes, dissected intricate mechanics, and crafted captivating treatments. It was a captivating journey of creative discovery that breathed life into our design endeavours.

A design language that felt fresh & exhilarating with a heritage tonality.

To connect the Old Royal College's historical setting with a contemporary vibe, we sought a treatment that bridged the two worlds. Our preliminary research highlighted the strong presence of nautical and naval graphic language in the collective consciousness. Leveraging this awareness, our team seamlessly merged these graphics and stylistic elements to create a distinctive brand language.

“We love our GSS brand look and feel - a truly smart visual identity.”
