2019 Creative Campaign

We are looking for talented artists, illustrators and designers to create the artwork for our creative campaign for The Warren 2019, Brighton Fringe's largest festival site.

About us

We, Otherplace, are Brighton's biggest production company. Often described as a 'festival-within-a-festival', The Warren is our bustling multi-venue site that pops up every May-June for the duration of Brighton Fringe.

Walk among the festoon-lit trees and you'll find a month-long party in full swing. In 2019, the site will feature four performance spaces, two festival bars, food traders and a children's area. Over 32 days, we stage over 800 performances, varying from cabaret and circus, to comedy, dance, film, music, theatre, workshops - and everything in between!


We are looking for an initial concept for The Warren 2019 brochure cover. The initial design will then be carried forward with us to create the final artwork. The brochure will be printed in A5.

We are open to any creative interpretations of what The Warren represents. The design does not necessarily need to be a pictorial representation of what we do, but should be bold, colourful and convey the spirit of The Warren site.

The design should include the Warren 'header', represented by our iconic entrance archway (see Dropbox link for images). It will also need to include the dates: 2 May - 2 June 2019.

In addition to the brochure cover, the fee includes the design of two adverts for inside the brochure using elements of the cover design. Specifications and briefs for these will be discussed after the cover design is finalised.

Elements of the design will be lifted as individual feature/accent graphics for marketing purposes, merchandise, uniforms, and stationery. Some examples of where the artwork is featured are:

  • Staff uniforms
  • Staff passes
  • Merchandise
  • Large on-site correx posters
  • Till receipt headers
  • Headed paper
  • Discount cards and drinks tokens
  • Social media
  • Posters and flyers
  • Adverts in local publications
  • Web adverts
  • E-newsletter headers
  • Brochure bin stickers


This Dropbox folder contains some images of The Warren festival site for inspiration.

Our social media accounts also have many more photos and content: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.


The artist will receive a payment of £800 for their design, as well as a 1/4 page advert in the brochure (worth £500) and a credit on our Partners page.


The artwork will be predominantly used for our 2019 festival campaign and any aspects related to our 2019 operations.

We will work on an Exclusive Usage License and retain the right to use the artwork for future campaigns. The artist retains full copyright of the artwork.


The deadline for submissions is midnight on Sunday, 30 September 2018.

We are aiming for completion for the final artwork by Sunday 25 November 2018.

There may also be some smaller ad-hoc tasks in the lead up to the festival.

Please email submissions to marketing@otherplacebrighton.co.uk.
