The Celebration of Armistice
As part of the 100 year centenary celebrations, which marked the signing of the Armistice that ended the Great War in 1918, Oi was delighted to work alongside the Bailiff’s Chambers to create a concept for various deliverables for the Celebration of Armistice event.
The musical celebration was held at Fort Regent as the penultimate event to the Remembrance Sunday ceremony. The event combined a series of readings, visual presentations and musical performances from many local acts including the Jersey Symphony Orchestra to honour the occasion.
Oi was asked to produce an identity for the event. Our creative team began with designing two complementary logos which reflected the Great War era. Using a vintage style typeface for the 'Jersey 2018' logos, a silhouette of a 'Tommy' soldier was also incorporated into the designs.
An A4 poster was also produced to promote the event. The creative focused on a violin silhouette to signify the musical aspect of the symphony, which also contained original Great War imagery. The imagery used was taken from the journal of John Edward Coombs, a Jersey soldier who served in the Great War. His journal contains a collection of photographs and other authentic material from the time.
Carrying on the creative inspiration from the poster, Oi also produced the programme for the event. The design incorporated collages of authentic photographs (again taken from the journal of John Edward Coombs), sepia tones and subtle First World War graphic silhouettes. The end result was very authentic and sympathetic to the era and created a wonderful keepsake for those attending the celebratory event.
Oi also created digital artwork for the screens that played during the event which added to the reflective ambience of the ceremony.
