Islington Community Festival has unveiled a new brand design and poster for the one-day celebration, which takes place in Salford on Saturday 11th July. The festival will be staged at various venues around Islington as an initiative to showcase the creative community and bring the locals together, including residents of the new Vimto Gardens development.

The festival aims to present a platform for local groups, projects, musicians and artists to showcase the richness and diversity of Islington.

Verity Gardner of event organiser Islington Mill said: “Cuckoo Design have very kindly supported the event by designing imagery and a logo which perfectly fits the design brief of organic, hand-drawn and clearly identifiable to the area and local people. I am thrilled with the results and it has been a pleasure to work with the Cuckoo team.”

Jennifer Kennedy, sales and marketing manager at Cuckoo Design, said: “We jumped at the opportunity to get involved with this project. The event provides a beacon of inspiration for Salford’s creative community and we are extremely proud to play our part. The brief was to reflect the organic and environmental nature of Islington Mill, while capturing the strong creative influence they have on the community.”

The Festival, also sponsored by Muse Developments, Social Adventures and Salix Homes, will feature exhibitions, live music, stalls and food and drink.
