Splinter has re-designed the Snowdonia Mountains and Coast ‘The Active Destination’ bilingual guide. Working with Gwynedd Council we produced the 80 page A5 document promoting the wide range of outdoor leisure activities available in the area.

We were selected by Gwynedd Council because of our experience of producing Welsh / English documents and our understanding, and creative interpretation, of their corporate guidelines. The high quality brochure promotes the activity tourism products within Snowdonia National Park, Llŷn Peninsula and Cambrian Coastline.

Just wanted to thank all at Splinter for all their efforts and patience in producing the Snowdonia Mountains and Coast’s activity brochure. The team was always helpful and very easy to work with. Splinter delivered on producing a modern, quirky, clean design, which has produced a visually exciting piece of marketing material for the Snowdonia Mountains and Coast area. It’s been accepted with open arms by all of us at the office and especially the area’s trade! Thank you and we hope to work together again in the near future.

Splinter are proud to announce that one of our gang, illustrator Stephen Chan, has beaten over 250 applicants to win the UK’s Don’t Panic poster competition. The competition is part of the PlayStation® Season and Manchester International Festival, the award is made even more prestigious as Stephen’s design was chosen by graphics guru/legend/master Peter Saville ( who said:

The work questioned the subject [innovation] and posed multiple answers. Also it was one of the only works executed in a contemporary visual idiom, whereas a lot of the posters were styled using a retro aesthetic. I discounted these immediately as they weren’t innovative in style, even if the subject was attempting to be innovative.
