Cybex Back at Leisure Industry Week 2014

Cybex International returned to Leisure Industry Week last month with a new-look exhibition stand, designed and built exclusively for one of its biggest UK trade shows of the year.

Not only supporting on marketing, operational and the logistics both pre-event and during the show, the 100AND10% team were tasked with designing new creative for the stand, which this year included two new areas to promote the Cybex Design Studio and Cybex Research Institute (CRI).

Wall graphics were produced to profile the latest research from the CRI; executive director Dr. Paul Juris was on hand to talk through his latest findings and to explain the importance of the role that the CRI has in the development of Cybex equipment.

Floor vinyls were also designed to highlight Cybex’s latest equipment offering, the Eagle NX selectorised strength range, which was front and centre of the 110m² space.

The pre-event comms plan, delivered by 100AND10%, included HTML emails, pdf invitations for Cybex clients and prospects as well as extensive promotion via Cybex’s UK Twitter profile.

Video footage and photos were collated throughout the show to create a post-event highlights video; part of 100AND10%’s full service marketing support which includes video production and editing.

Nuffield Health engages 100AND10% for new fitness centre signage

Leading health and fitness organisation Nuffield Health recently completed the installation of a new fitness centre at Enfield Grammar School and tasked 100AND10% with designing the creative signage and wayfinding.

The facility, which saw the school’s old sports hall transformed into a state of the art gym and fitness studio, is open to members in the evenings and at weekends, whilst being available to the school throughout the day.

The challenge of combining the branding of both Nuffield Health and the school was overcome with the creation of a composite logo, used across all signage.

“Given the dual purpose nature of the site, it was important to ensure a balance between the two and ensure that the school didn’t lose its identity, but also that everyone was aware of the new gym on site.” explained Ed Foster, 100AND10%’s creative manager.

“The photography used adds to the atmosphere of the whole environment, which already looks fantastic following the refurbishment and the addition of the new Cybex equipment. The wayfinding, whilst always a functional element, also allowed for the incorporation of more subtle branding, too.”

 “We asked 100AND10% to deliver the onsite creative at Enfield Grammar having seen some of their other design projects, including their work with Cybex.

“Following the successful installation of the artwork and very positive feedback from the client, we’ve since asked them to support on the gym’s pre-launch marketing campaign; we’ve been delighted with what has been produced by 100AND10% to date and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Check out some examples of our creative work below and visit www.enfieldgrammar-nuffieldhealth.com for more information on the gym.

Taking place on 22-23 October at Twickenham Stadium, Rugby Expo will again be managed and delivered by the team at 100AND10%, who are responsible for all pre-event and at-event operations, plus creative elements including the new website which was launched earlier this year.
