The journey so far

After being presented with the project brief, the team started to meet with VisitAberdeenshire to brainstorm ideas, finally settling on a food and drink event that celebrates the diverse and local offering of Buchan. The first task was getting the ball rolling, from liaising with businesses and the venue to creating a full marketing strategy to promote the event, which included an array of digital channels. In October, the team’s designers unveiled the masterpiece logo which has been used ever since in relation to everything Taste of Buchan.
