Cath Kidston’s Guide to Vintage at Southbank Festival minimag

Vintage at Southbank is a cultural festival curated by Wayne Hemmingway that celebrates music, fashion, art, design and dance from the 1920s to the 1980s. Cath Kidston set up a pop-up shop in the vintage marketplace at the festival in the style of an old fashioned hardware shop.

I was given the task to design the shop front which was then transformed into a hand painted lifesize fascia, a brand history wall, a ‘Cath Kidston Guide to Vintage at Southbank’ mini mag, along with POS and signage within the shop.

Spring / Summer 2012 ‘Cheap as Chips’ sale window POS

Spring / Summer 2012 Sale online and direct mail marketing

The Spring / Summer 2012 sale identity used the tag line ‘Cheap as Chips’, mimicking the appearance of traditional British chip shop signage. These boards were hung in the window on a chain attached to a sucker and as the sale progresses they were flipped over to show a new customer-facing message communicating further markdowns and a new tag line ‘Now Cheaper than Chips’. This was also supported instore by hanging signs above feature tables, strut cards, along with online marketing and direct mail.
