As Eastbourne Airbourne returns for its 20th anniversary with four days of fast jets, historic aircraft, parachute displays and more, PRG is celebrating seeing our winning graphic design displayed across the town.
PRG won the contract to design the official Airbourne programme and supporting marketing materials for the UK’s largest seafront airshow in May, following a three-way pitch. Since then PRG’s in-house design studio has been working closely with Eastbourne Borough Council to create the eye-catching design now displayed in prominent positions across the town as well as appearing on BBC television. On sale throughout the town is the PRG designed Eastbourne Airbourne brochure detailing Eastbourne Airbourne flying times and Eastbourne Airbourne schedule of events.
PRG’s graphic designer Chris Booth said: “We needed a design that celebrated Britain and the landmarks that have been reached this year, namely, The Queens’ Diamond Jubilee, The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and Eastbourne Airbourne’s 20th Anniversary.
“The union flag symbolises Britishness, is instantly recognisable, appeals to the nation and expected visitors to Eastbourne, and ties in with the armed forces who play a major role in Airbourne every year. A section of the flag was turned at an angle to symbolise take-off and flying for dramatic effect.”
The excitement in the town is palpable with Airbourne welcoming the UK’s only flying Vulcan bomber as the headline act. Plus, airshow fans can look forward to military displays from the Tornado GR4, Hawk, King Air, Sea King, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight featuring the Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire, Ticano, Tutor and an Army Air Corps Lynx, to name just a few.
