2018 Creative Campaign

Please note we have now closed applications for our 2018 creative campaign.

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 for the duration of Brighton Fringe.

Walk among the festoon-lit trees and you'll find a month-long party in full swing. In 2018, the site will feature four performance spaces, two festival bars, food traders and a children's area. Over 32 days, we stage over 710 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 2018 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: 3 May - 3 June 2018.

In addition to the brochure cover, elements of the design will be lifted as individual feature/accent graphics on merchandise, uniforms, and stationery. Some examples of where the artwork is featured are:

  • Staff uniforms
  • Merchandise
  • Large on-site correx posters
  • Till receipt headers
  • Headed paper
  • Discount cards and drinks tokens
  • Social media
  • Adverts in local publications


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


The artist will receive a payment of £400 for their design, as well as a 1/4 page advert in the brochure and a credit on our Partners page.


The artwork will be specifically used for our 2018 festival campaign (and any aspects related to our 2018 operation) only.

We will work on an Exclusive Usage License. The artist retains full copyright of the artwork.


The deadline for submissions is midnight on Sunday, 17 September 2017.

We are aiming for completion for the final artwork by 11 December 2017.

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