Our launch event design, production and set-up work
Cogent Design created the invitations, directional signage, PowerPoint presentation templates, delegate packs and environmental graphics inside the British Museum. We liaised closely with the Museum events department to ensure that we were compliant with their regulations and Health and Safety policy. Because of the limitations on fixing to the walls we used large scale free standing banners and projected 10meter high graphics onto the walls using high powered spot lights and animated Gobos. Cogent also supervised the set up and attended on the day to ensure the smooth running of our areas of responsibility.
