BID Camborne is running a free design and discovery workshop on Tuesday 1 August as part of its plan to create branded zones in the town centre.
The session will explore how Camborne should be visually represented on signage and promotional material and is being led by award-winning and locally based graphic designer Tim Hendy.
“Anyone with an interest in contributing is very welcome to attend,” said BID Camborne project manager Sarah Stevens. “Project A-Void is all about transforming the appearance of the town centre and, worth more than £5m, is one of eleven projects awarded a total of £23.7m by the Government’s Town Deal initiative.
“As well as providing grants of up to £5000 each to help local traders improve their premises, the Camborne Town Deal funding is also being used to create branded shopping quarters and gateway marking for the town centre. That will all help visitors discover Camborne’s treasure trove of independent shops, businesses and heritage sites in a consistent, eye-catching style that captures the town’s heart, soul and uniqueness.
“Tim Hendy is a talented designer with deep roots in the Camborne community. Working alongside him to achieve a new look that feels both authentic and attractive is a real opportunity and I hope as many people as possible will come along and take part.”
The design and discovery workshop will take place from 6-8pm on Tuesday 1 August in the Wesley Church Community centre in Chapel Street. To register attendance, please email [email protected] or call Sarah Stevens on 07496224548.
