The Poly

Revitalising a cultural institution

The Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society or ‘The Poly’ as it is known locally, is a much loved educational, cultural and scientific charity, based in Falmouth, Cornwall.

It is based in an iconic listed building at the heart of the town and is due soon to celebrate its 200th year. We were commissioned to refresh the branding and to establish a new design style, with a fresh contemporary colour palette to be used in conjunction with a set of modern fonts.

The new branding was then implemented in a co-ordinated and consistent manner across all the marketing and display materials.

At the same time we were asked to redesign the website to be more contemporary and user friendly and to appeal to a wider audience helping to increase traffic to their existing online ticket system and to increase bookings.

The site is responsive for use on tablet and smart phones and makes both seeing what’s on and booking tickets so much easier then before.

"Vitamin Cornwall (Creative Edge) have made developing our new website a straightforward and really positive experience. The team have always been happy to help with our (numerous!) requests and have provided a great service, as well as creating a truly modern website we can manage really effectively in-house… thanks all"
