Burns&Beyond is an annual festival celebrating the life and legacy of Robert Burns through arts and culture. Audiences can discover the very best in creative talents from across Scotland and beyond in some of the most well-known venues and buildings throughout Edinburgh city centre.
Working closely with the team at Unique Events, we created a festival name, logo and overall design theme. With a wonderfully mixed programme (whisky speed tasting for one) we needed a design format that could hold lots of information without looking cluttered and confusing. The ampersand in the logo was introduced to tie Burns to the many different festival events, making the branding extremely adaptable. The design was applied to a multitude of formats and purposes, including a website, social media, posters, adverts, leaflets, outdoor signage and on-site branding.
The festival has now had many years of success, and we’re constantly working to help this to evolve.
2021’s theme was sending out messages of love, hope and kindness, after a difficult time by many during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2020, Burns&Beyond joined forces with Edinburgh Chinese New Year to create a fantastic three-week festival.
