Find your direction


BCU’s Fashion and Textile School required a suite of brochures to promote their world-class courses.

Inspired by fashion look books and magazines, CT developed a contemporary, edgy approach to the design while still adhering to the University’s corporate and sub-brand guidelines.

We created abstract page layouts by highlighting details of garments and deconstructing imagery – playing with block colour, texture and pattern. Cut up typography added interest and direction to the pages. Printed on uncoated stock to add to their tactile nature.

Don’t miss out


Working with Birmingham City University we developed a social media campaign to encourage their students to use their uni email. We developed humorous, bold copy lines paired with quirky imagery to grab the target audience’s attention and really sell the potential benefits of checking their emails so they don’t miss out.

Decomposing music


We’ve just finished working on the marketing materials for Birmingham Conservatoire’s Frontiers Festival of Contemporary Music. For the second year running we were asked to design a 20 page programme, A5 flyer and pull up banner.

This year the theme was ‘decomposing music’ and the design included visuals of knock-downed buildings. A nod to the Adrian Boult Hall’s imminent demolition and the new state-of-the-art Conservatoire building that is under construction.

We also supplied elements to be used by the client to create a consistent look and feel across their website and social media. Follow the festival on twitter @frontiersplus or find them on facebook/frontiersplus.

Trends exhibition


Last month Birmingham City University’s textile students exhibited their ‘trends’ project work at the May Design Series at the ExCel in London. Creative Triangle were tasked with creating the supporting materials for the exhibition including a 12pp brochure, certificates for students, voting cards and exhibition panels.

The students created two room sets within the BCU exhibition stand influenced by two trends – Tropic & Brink – all marketing collateral we created showcased the two trends by creating a platform to incorporate images of the students’ work within the design.

Events guide


Birmingham Conservatoire, part of Birmingham City University, educates and trains musicians to the highest of professional standards. Be it solo performance or orchestra, jazz or classical, the wide variety of creative talent emanating from the Conservatoire really had us inspired.

We were tasked with reinvigorating the autumn concert and events diary. The sixty page diary contained listings for over 100 recitals, events and masterclasses. Utmost importance was placed on designing a flexible layout that gave prominence to the key details. Click here to view the full diary and find out more.
