&Smith and We All Need Words to rebrand Shrewsbury

Consultancies &Smith and We All Need Words are working to create a new identity for the Shropshire town of Shrewsbury.

The two groups have been commissioned by Shropshire Council to ‘put Shrewsbury on the map’, according to &Smith creative partner Dan Bernstein.

He says, ‘Other Shropshire towns all have reasons for people to visit them - for example Ludlow has food and Much Wenlock has the Olympics connection - but Shrewsbury is much bigger and has so much to offer.

‘It’s got loads of history, lots of independent shops, there’s loads there. Our job is to find the detail.’

&Smith and We All Need Words were appointed at the end of March following a pitch.

Bernstein says the new identity, which will be used by the council right down to individual shopkeepers, is set to launch towards the end of May.

  • Sometimes I think design and marketing has gone too far when such jobs exist as 'Rebranding Shrewsbury'.
