Half Term style, inspired by Enid Blyton

Seven Stories

The brief

We were asked to create the concept for Seven Stories’ February 2017 Half Term campaign and apply it across a suite of campaign materials.

Project requirements

Seven Stories’ Half Term activities programme was inspired by Enid Blyton: Seven Stories holds the only substantial and publicly available collection of Enid Blyton’s work.

We were therefore asked to subtly draw upon Enid Blyton’s books in the campaign creative.

Seven Stories had ambitious targets in terms of visitor numbers and needed a powerful visual concept to deliver an impactful campaign across print, online and digital channels.

What we delivered

We created a torchlight asset as the hero image, adding cut-out letters to convey an air of mystery. We then applied a colour palette borrowed from Blyton’s Famous Five books.

Seven Stories achieved just under 4,000 visits over the Half Term week, which was 10% up on last year.
