Revolting Art + Design are extremely proud to announce that they have been awarded the 2012 Media and Innovation Award for Collaboration between Business & Young People. Revolting’s ‘Secret Safari’ project, created for the National Trusts Young Persons Alternative Guide to Brownsea Island was one of 34 nominations in 12 award categories.
The project was commissioned by the Brownsea Unlocked Partnership, as a way to engage young people with the island. Using the unique habitat as inspiration Revolting worked with Ashdown School to create six unique creatures. In workshops both on the island and in the classroom, they worked with students who’s drawings and stories were then developed by illustrator Phil Smith and award winning writer Joanna Quinn.
The creatures and stories are now part of an interactive tour of the island where visitors are encouraged to capture the creatures by scanning hidden QR codes at various locations.
In their category Revolting were up against projects created by SiftGroups (in association with South London Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, Tate Britain, and the Southbank Centre for the Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project) and Aardman Animations (for the Tate & Legacy Trust in association with Fallon and BBC).
The Media Innovation Awards celebrate the innovative use of media and design across the South West of England, it attracted entries from as far afield as Penzance and Poole with applications from companies and practitioners in the creative industries and also from their clients.
The judges are respected members of the UK media and design industry and the Awards are a joint initiative by the media, design and music clusters across the South West.
This is the second award Revolting has received for this project, the other being an European Lovie Award presented and judged by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. For more information please visit Revoltings online case study and the Revolting Awards page.
Also look out for the Secret Safari appearing in a new book ‘Basics Graphic Design 03: Idea Generation' by Neil Leonard, published by AVA later this year.

Reaching our award

Revolting has been shortlisted for a Media Innovation Award.
This Wednesday night (14th November) the Revolting team will be attending the 2012 gala dinner at the BBC studios in Bristol. 
Revolting’s ‘Secret Safari’ project, created for the National Trusts Young Persons Alternative Guide to Brownsea Island, is one of 34 nominations in 12 award categories. Revolting is excited to be the only Dorset company in the running, going head to head in its category with Aardman (of Wallace and Gromit fame) and a project backed by Louis Vuitton.
Pupils from Ashdown Technology College wanted to produce a digital installation on the island. The installation needed to connect the world as experienced by young people to Brownsea. Revolting worked with the students in workshops on the island and in the classroom to explore the ideas of habitat and natural selection and how certain environments can shape the creatures that live there. These ideas were refined with illustrator Phil ‘Biff’ Smith and the creatures’ individual stories were developed by award-winning writer Joanna Quinn and six new creatures were born. QR codes were then installed at different locations on the island so that visitors could ‘capture’ the creatures on their mobile phones.
Keep an eye on our twitter @wearerevolting for photos from the evening and most importantly to find out if we win!

As part of the Young People’s Alternative Guide to Brownsea Island in Dorset, pupils from Ashdown Technology College wanted to work with an artist or creative agency to produce a digital installation on the island. The installation needed to connect the world as experienced by young people to Brownsea.
Brownsea island is a unique habitat with some rare and uncommon flora and fauna, this inspired Revolting to create a ‘Secret Safari’. Revolting carried out a thorough survey of the island to establish where mobile internet coverage was best so that the highest quantity of visitors could access the project. It then worked with pupils in workshops on the island and in the classroom to explore the ideas of habitat and natural selection and how a certain environment can shape the creatures that live there.
These ideas were refined by illustrator Phil ‘Biff’ Smith and the creatures’ individual stories were developed by award-winning writer Joanna Qunin working with the Poole pupils. Eventually, six new creatures were born. QR codes were then installed in each of the locations so that visitors could ‘capture’ the creatures on their phones.
The Safari now forms part of the Young People’s Alternative Guide to the island and will be used to promote the island to young people and increase visitor numbers. Revolting will monitor the success of the project by tracking the number of time QR codes are accessed. This project has also received a Lovie award from the The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences

The Lovie Awards recognise the unique and resonant nature of the European Internet community. The awards are presented and judged by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, who are a leading body of experts, business figures, luminaries, creative celebrities and other Internet professionals.
The awards recieved almost 700 entries from 20 European countries and Revolting won an award within the Education and Reference category for an interactive ‘Secret Safari’ on Brownsea Island which we produced for the National Trust.
The purpose of the project was to increase young people’s interest in Brownsea Island. To achieve this the National Trust wanted to create an alternative guide to the island. Using inspiration of the unique habitat of Brownsea, Revolting worked with pupils from a local school to create unique creatures that are captured by visitors scanning QR codes at hidden locations around the island.

To communicate the quality, craftsmanship and uniqueness of their copper baths, William Holland required a sales brochure that would demonstrate all of this to potential buyers and suppliers.
Revolting understood that the design and detail of the brochure was central to ensuring that it would stand out in a competitive market place, as was the quality of the printing and paper stock.
To achieve this took the time and expertise of the team and our print supplier to ensure that all elements of the brochure would meet our clients expectations. This included identifying suitable print and binding methods, to create a truly high quality brochure which will be a invaluable communications and sales tool.

Recently we had a small redesign of our business cards.
The new cards all feature a QR code to make it easier to store our contact details on a smart phone. Not only that, you can now have a miniature Revolting team stood on your desk, shelves or any other surface (we’ve already had a table-top bowling competition - Ross won!).
The photographs were taken by our friend Andy Whale (www.andywhale.com) and the cards were digitally printed and hand finished by Acanthus in Somerset.

Revolting Art + Design are extremely proud to announce that they have been awarded the 2012 Media and Innovation Award for Collaboration between Business & Young People. Revolting’s ‘Secret Safari’ project, created for the National Trusts Young Persons Alternative Guide to Brownsea Island was one of 34 nominations in 12 award categories.
The project was commissioned by the Brownsea Unlocked Partnership, as a way to engage young people with the island. Using the unique habitat as inspiration Revolting worked with Ashdown School to create six unique creatures. In workshops both on the island and in the classroom, they worked with students who’s drawings and stories were then developed by illustrator Phil Smith and award winning writer Joanna Quinn.
The creatures and stories are now part of an interactive tour of the island where visitors are encouraged to capture the creatures by scanning hidden QR codes at various locations.
In their category Revolting were up against projects created by SiftGroups (in association with South London Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, Tate Britain, and the Southbank Centre for the Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project) and Aardman Animations (for the Tate & Legacy Trust in association with Fallon and BBC).
The Media Innovation Awards celebrate the innovative use of media and design across the South West of England, it attracted entries from as far afield as Penzance and Poole with applications from companies and practitioners in the creative industries and also from their clients.
The judges are respected members of the UK media and design industry and the Awards are a joint initiative by the media, design and music clusters across the South West.
This is the second award Revolting has received for this project, the other being an European Lovie Award presented and judged by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. For more information please visit Revoltings online case study and the Revolting Awards page.
Also look out for the Secret Safari appearing in a new book ‘Basics Graphic Design 03: Idea Generation' by Neil Leonard, published by AVA later this year.

Reaching our award

Revolting has been shortlisted for a Media Innovation Award.
This Wednesday night (14th November) the Revolting team will be attending the 2012 gala dinner at the BBC studios in Bristol. 
Revolting’s ‘Secret Safari’ project, created for the National Trusts Young Persons Alternative Guide to Brownsea Island, is one of 34 nominations in 12 award categories. Revolting is excited to be the only Dorset company in the running, going head to head in its category with Aardman (of Wallace and Gromit fame) and a project backed by Louis Vuitton.
Pupils from Ashdown Technology College wanted to produce a digital installation on the island. The installation needed to connect the world as experienced by young people to Brownsea. Revolting worked with the students in workshops on the island and in the classroom to explore the ideas of habitat and natural selection and how certain environments can shape the creatures that live there. These ideas were refined with illustrator Phil ‘Biff’ Smith and the creatures’ individual stories were developed by award-winning writer Joanna Quinn and six new creatures were born. QR codes were then installed at different locations on the island so that visitors could ‘capture’ the creatures on their mobile phones.
Keep an eye on our twitter @wearerevolting for photos from the evening and most importantly to find out if we win!

As part of the Young People’s Alternative Guide to Brownsea Island in Dorset, pupils from Ashdown Technology College wanted to work with an artist or creative agency to produce a digital installation on the island. The installation needed to connect the world as experienced by young people to Brownsea.
Brownsea island is a unique habitat with some rare and uncommon flora and fauna, this inspired Revolting to create a ‘Secret Safari’. Revolting carried out a thorough survey of the island to establish where mobile internet coverage was best so that the highest quantity of visitors could access the project. It then worked with pupils in workshops on the island and in the classroom to explore the ideas of habitat and natural selection and how a certain environment can shape the creatures that live there.
These ideas were refined by illustrator Phil ‘Biff’ Smith and the creatures’ individual stories were developed by award-winning writer Joanna Qunin working with the Poole pupils. Eventually, six new creatures were born. QR codes were then installed in each of the locations so that visitors could ‘capture’ the creatures on their phones.
The Safari now forms part of the Young People’s Alternative Guide to the island and will be used to promote the island to young people and increase visitor numbers. Revolting will monitor the success of the project by tracking the number of time QR codes are accessed. This project has also received a Lovie award from the The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences

The Lovie Awards recognise the unique and resonant nature of the European Internet community. The awards are presented and judged by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, who are a leading body of experts, business figures, luminaries, creative celebrities and other Internet professionals.
The awards recieved almost 700 entries from 20 European countries and Revolting won an award within the Education and Reference category for an interactive ‘Secret Safari’ on Brownsea Island which we produced for the National Trust.
The purpose of the project was to increase young people’s interest in Brownsea Island. To achieve this the National Trust wanted to create an alternative guide to the island. Using inspiration of the unique habitat of Brownsea, Revolting worked with pupils from a local school to create unique creatures that are captured by visitors scanning QR codes at hidden locations around the island.

To communicate the quality, craftsmanship and uniqueness of their copper baths, William Holland required a sales brochure that would demonstrate all of this to potential buyers and suppliers.
Revolting understood that the design and detail of the brochure was central to ensuring that it would stand out in a competitive market place, as was the quality of the printing and paper stock.
To achieve this took the time and expertise of the team and our print supplier to ensure that all elements of the brochure would meet our clients expectations. This included identifying suitable print and binding methods, to create a truly high quality brochure which will be a invaluable communications and sales tool.

Recently we had a small redesign of our business cards.
The new cards all feature a QR code to make it easier to store our contact details on a smart phone. Not only that, you can now have a miniature Revolting team stood on your desk, shelves or any other surface (we’ve already had a table-top bowling competition - Ross won!).
The photographs were taken by our friend Andy Whale (www.andywhale.com) and the cards were digitally printed and hand finished by Acanthus in Somerset.
