In the summer of 2016, the Cayman Islands sent a team of four athletes to compete in the prestigious Olympic games in Brazil. This provided me with the perfect opportunity to publish a magazine to promote and support the Cayman Islands team and the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee members, showcasing past Olympians and guiding the community about where to watch the Olympic Games. Who better to assist me in the layout and design of the souvenir magazine than the incredibly talented team at Creative Circle Media?
After one briefing call, Bill and Lynn immediately understood the concept and my needs, and those of the Olympic Committee’s needs. The magazine needed to be vibrant, eye catching, heavy on photos, patriotic to the Cayman Islands and must inspire the reader to keep it as a souvenir. We had 16 weeks to create something very special.
Lynn supplied me with a detailed overview of the project, a list of deliverables and a guideline for submitting the written content and photos, which I diligently adhered to. The Olympic Committee worked closely with me and were extremely co-operative, and participated in the proofing process.
As ever, Lynn was incredibly patient with me and created multiple proofs in total.
The final product met the criteria as requested. As well as a local distribution, copies were couriered to the team in Brazil.
The front cover caught the attention of the local community, and we soon ran out of copies.
It’s always a highly interactive and mutually respectful experience working with the Creative Circle team; they understand that we need to pander to our clients’ needs while still complying to the creative direction of the project.
