Our most scenically-located client, Longborough Festival Opera is a privately-owned country house opera in the heart of the Cotswolds.
Lauded by audiences and critics alike, LFO is a uniquely intimate and characterful venue, which comes across in the tone of the website’s design and copywriting; a purposeful balance between seriously sophisticated and warmly welcoming.
Integrating with their new Spektrix box office system – which sells tickets, membership and dining packages – the new LFO website is designed to be beautifully clear; much like the acoustics in the opera house itself.
We worked so well with the LFO team, they tasked us with designing their season programme – a 100-page, perfect-bound book which acts not only as a programme for each production, but a high-quality keepsake for the audience.
The biggest challenge was taking four very different creative visions for each of the season's four productions, and melding them into a cohesive look. We did this by using a consistent typographic framework throughout, then assigning a unique colour palette, image style and title treatment to each production.
On the website, bespoke 'hero' images and highlight colours for each production achieves a consistent and distinctive look across print and screen.
Speaking about both projects, LFO’s Marketing Manager says: “They not only fulfilled our brief; they created something beyond the limits of our imagination. This is the particular skill of Supercool.”
