Christmas Comes Early

The sun is shining and the beaches full of holiday makers soaking up all that Cornwall has to offer. Christmas is but a distant memory... So you may think, but with the off-season becoming equally important to the tourist industry many companies are promoting all year round. We've recently completed work on three new Christmas brochures for The Bay Hotel, The Esplanade Hotel and Boringdon Hall Hotel.

If Christmas is not going to be at home this year – start booking now!

Spoon Fed

After sponsoring the Ignite Cornwall Business Plan competition for the second year, Creative Edge are now working with winners Sproggie as part of the prize package.

Michael Mailling of Sproggie has designed an ingenious plastic spoon that clips to popular baby food pouches to make on-the-go baby feeding a simple single-handed affair with hardly any mess.

“Judging was once again made incredibly hard by the high standard of entries. There really are many talented entrepreneurs in our industrious county.” commented Dave Rickett, “In the end though, Sproggie had developed a fantastic product that tickled the taste buds of the judges”.

Creative Edge has initially been involved in developing the Sproggie brand.

Judgemental

Creative Edge were delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor a category in the DESIGNED. IN CORNWALL exhibition at University College Falmouth.

The event showcased the outstanding design and technology work produced by students at schools and Higher Education colleges across Cornwall and is the only large-scale exhibition of its kind in the country.

The high standard meant that Senior Designer Leo Stockley had his work cut out when judging the Graphic Product category, but a bauhaus inspired chess board by Joe Cooke of Roseland School was the stand out for its consistency of style. Highly Commended went to Amy Johnstone of Camborne Science & Community College Academy – whose Shoe as a promotional item for a bad was superb. There was a huge variety of inspirational work, from textiles and fashion to food technology. Some of the stand outs in various catergories included the coffin wardrobe, washing machine BBQ and typography on the reading chair (see images below).
