British Science Festival 2009: In 2009 we worked with the British Science Festival which was hosted at Guildford. We suggested installing a dramatic temporary new lighting scheme for Guildford Cathedral. This successful event became the opening ceremony for the festival.
Guildford Cathedral Lighting Project: Working with Oldham Lighting and Architectural Lighting specialists BDSP Partnership we delivered a landmark display to celebrate the events themes of creativity and innovation. Paul spoke to the University of Surrey about the illuminations and the Oldham Brand. [VIDEO]. The BBC recorded the event on the BBC Surrey website [SLIDES].
Oldham Lighting: Oldham are a global leader in linear lighting and can trace their business heritage back to the pioneering lighting techniques that produced neon signs.
Oldham Lighting: Working with the board of directors we developed a new brand strategy to integrate the new and existing products. Verve created a strapline 'the art of illumination' to summarise the way Oldham work closely with lighting Designers and Architects to realise a creative vision for a public space or building. Verve united the products with new names and themes. The cutting edge LED range was named Star-LED and the individual products under the range were named after stars - Mira, Rana, Vega and Zeta.

Attracting IT Professionals: We created a campaign using recognisable characters from the Granada archive of television. Helen Mirren's eyes (Prime Suspect) were used to entice IT professionals to seek further information through a banner campaign. This was backed up with a micro-Website.
The Granada Media Search Engine: The site uses Cybersword content management software to search the Granada Media archive for content. We designed the interface and gave it a theme. Granada has a wealth of famous detective characters. Using sleuths as a theme for a search engine was an appropriate metaphor for a service that helps users track down content.
