Laing and Carroll has designed the identity for The Thames Gateway Forum, which will launch next week. The forum is a new event concept arranged by Meeting of Minds, bringing together the three regions of the Thames Gateway – Kent, Essex and London – to facilitate development.
‘The brief was to make the identity contemporary, fresh and forward-looking; it has to be durable, as the development plan extends to 30 years. The forum should become an annual event as development continues,’ says Laing and Carroll partner Dominic Carroll.
The forum is scheduled for launch in November, with the aim of stimulating investment and discussion on Europe’s largest regeneration effort.
It is taking place in response to a Government initiative to create housing in the South East.
In addition to the forum identity, Laing and Carroll will also be designing launch material to encourage participation in the event.
