Judging for student competition to create a brand and sting for new Notts TV
We were looking through some pics this week and came across this one of a nice group of talented students from NTU.
Having not put this on our design blog at the time (was a busy few weeks back then!), here's what happened.
It was a marketing and promotional exercise to promote the new regional TV channel for Nottingham called Notts TV. Students were asked to come up with a Brand Identity for the TV Channel, a short video sting to promote it, and also a social media marketing campaign to spread the word.
Ian Morris, Managing Director of Threerooms, was proud to have been invited to be one of the judges on the competition.
During the afternoon, having been presented with two excellent executions, a winner was decided between the judging team and prizes given out, one of which was a week's work experience at the amazing Threerooms Design Company in Nottingham (woo hoo!).
Stephen was the lucky winner and we really enjoyed his company for that week. He seemed to be a really talented designer and we wished him all the best for the future.
Hopefully he will be back for a catch-up sometime soon to let us know how he got on.
We are pleased to announce that the long anticipated fantastic new website for the Maze, Nottingham’s legendary live music venue has now gone live.

Having worked on all the materials for the Christmas campaign for Victoria Centre Nottingham we couldn’t pass up the chance to get down there and see the lights switch on last night… and we weren’t disappointed :-)
The evening had a ‘Strictly’ theme (complete with a glitter ball, woo hoo!) and included a range of great performances from local dance group Take One who were showcasing different clothes from a range of retailers within the centre.
The highlight of the evening was the Xmas lights switch on by former Corrie actress and 2010’s Strictly contestant Tina O’Brien which was fantastic and made us all feel very Christmassy!!
Get yourself into the Christmas spirit by tuning into the new Victoria Centre advert that we’ve been working on which is currently being shown on ITV (Central East region).
The advert features a range of individuals who are the ‘local faces’ from the campaign and shows their reaction to the range of lovely xmas gifts they are being given.
The advert is running at a variety of time slots over the next few weeks in the run up to Christmas.
Make sure you keep an eye out over the next few weeks for the festive faces on a range of Victoria Centre marketing throughout the area including on local buses and trams, on the Victoria centre website, on ‘in centre’ posters and in the local press.
Fancy seeing Corrie and Strictly Come Dancing Star Tina O'Brien at a location near you?
Then make sure you free up some space in your diary and head down to the Victoria Centre in Nottingham on Wednesday 14th November at 6.30pm to see Tina switching on the Christmas lights.
We are hugely proud to have worked on this year's Christmas collateral for the Victoria Centre's Xmas campaign so we are looking forward to coming down and seeing the first part of the campaign artwork in situ. (the idea of us popping on our dancing shoes and spangly outfits to fit with the 'Strictly' theme is currently under debate, he he).
If you are a superfan of the lovely Tina why not enter the following competition at www.victoriacentre.uk.com which will give 5 lucky winners the chance to meet her on the night and to waltz away with a VIP goodie bag plus 2 tickets per winner to the Strictly 2013 Live Tour.
What's not to love?!?We look forward to seeing you there...
Festival of Nottingham branding and logo released
In collaboration with Tony Bates from Fast Graphics (and many others), Threerooms are now proud to release the branding and logo design for the great new Nottingham event, Festival of Nottingham.
Gearing up for launch in October, and set to provide a full month of events, exhibitions, music and technology action, the festival is set to go with a bang and set light to the very best that Nottingham has to offer for the whole of the month!
And, being a collaborative event, everyone can get involved :) So, if you are a Nottingham venue, have some to offer the Festival, or are just an avid Nottingham fan, then get in touch and get involved!
Thanks go out to all who were involved in the creative process and production of this branding, and a big thanks to FlexyWeb who are putting the website together and Shake Social for helping out with the social media for the event.

We had a fantastic two days in Victoria Centre for our 'Find the Face of Christmas' event. So many amazing people got involved - all they had to do was imagine they were given the best Christmas gift ever and give their best surprised reaction.... and there really were some fantastic faces!
Now you can turn blank walls into something truly stunning!
We've just been sent this innovative new idea by one of our suppliers and love the idea! All we need now is that right campaign to use it for.
Here's a bit more about it:
Until now, many textured surfaces have been off-limits for applying graphics. But now these surfaces can come to life using 3M™ Scotchcal™ Graphic Film for Textured Surfaces and the printing and application expertise of Service Graphics.
This unique product conforms and moulds over indoor and outdoor textured surfaces such as brick, concrete block, tiles, poured cement and stucco, creating photographic quality images that really demand attention.
Now the only limit is your imagination...
The Threerooms directors were both born and bred in Nottingham and both have a great passion for the city, however with an increasing amount of new clients residing in London and with a fear we might be wearing out the M1 going to see them, we decided, in April, to open a London base.
Rachel our Creative Director is now heading up the London office in the leafy suburbs of Chiswick, West London with easy access to Central London and all our southern clients.
"It's really exciting to make the move and open up a new office in London, our main base will still be Strelley Hall in Nottingham but we see this as a real advantage to our London clients - I can visit them and take face-to-face briefs but, with the majority of the work being done in Nottingham we can offer real value to our clients who don't want to pay London prices!"
If you want to get in touch with Rachel at the London office please call 0208 987 8740 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
