ROBERT BOYLE SCIENCE FESTIVAL – Logo and Brochure design
Our Role: Logo and brochure design for Festival Event
The inaugural Robert Boyle Science Festival, opened by Sean Sherlock, Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Jobs, Innovation and Department of Education & Skills, was held in Lismore 18th-20th November 2011. It is an initiative of Lismore Heritage Company and additional partners, to have a yearly gathering for both the local and scientific communities offering a menu of scientific lectures, social events and family activities to enjoy over the course of a festival weekend.
Red Heaven Design was approached to design a logo for the festival, which would be used on marketing materials to promote the event including a brochure to be designed by RHD as well.
The logo and brochure design links his birthplace in Lismore Castle, his work in early alchemy and his connection to The Royal Society of Chemistry as one of its founding members. Incorporating the identity within a heraldic shield shape honours the history and setting of subject. The painting of Boyle by Kerseboom was reproduced by permission of Chatsworth Settlement Trustees.
The Science Festival has since evolved into an annual summer school, which has adopted the logo with amendments to the name. For more information on The Robert Boyle Summer School please visit the website here.
