Background

As one of 43 Active Partnerships across England strategically placed to address the worrying levels of inactivity in society and increase the number of people taking part in sport and physical activity. The name change to Active Suffolk (formerly Suffolk Sport) aims to reflect this redefined purpose and aims to engage with inactive and under-represented audiences, as well as those who already participate in regular sport and physical activity.

Approach

The new branding was asked to convey the 'Active' nature of our business, whilst appealing to the kind of people who do not see themselves as traditionally 'Sporty'. As well as this the logo needed to show a sense of working in partnership from local authorities, to public health sectors and schools. Visually the new identity had to be simple and recognisable whilst being able to work with a range of vibrant colours, backgrounds and mediums.

We set out to create an strong brand-mark that incorporated all these values whilst taking advantage of a vibrant and exciting colour scheme that fed into the physical activity side of things. The brand mark consists of 4 dynamic shapes coming together the create an "S" shape that embodies the several partnerships intertwining to make up the county of Suffolk.

Outcome

The new logo identity was developed into a comprehensive brand guidelines document to ensure external partners and companies would handle the logo correctly. This included guidelines of logo use on branded materials such as stationery, printed annual reports and clothing.

With the new branding in place we set-out to refresh their website design to be more in-line with the new brand and a user friendly approach. The website incorporates SportSuite technology to provide tools that the users can use to find activities in and around the Suffolk county.
