I (Alistair) take the roles of co-organiser/event manager, marketing, ticket sales, business relations and business sales as well as brand management, designer and producer of all assets, website, logo and related.
Chester Comic Con has built up a brand value very quickly due to the high quality of the event and it's family appeal, this has led to partnering with brands such as Cineworld and Hickory's Smokehouse for cross brand collaboration and advertising.
The Chester Comic Con logo features distinct 3 colour branding, referencing the classic colours of pulp superheroes. The 'Superball' logo works takes inspiration from superhero iconography and incorporates the CCC initials of Chester Comic Con.
A clean, crisp and fast website provides a great user experience and prominent branding. Combining modern design with sisual effects such as parallax scrolling, pop out menus, announcement bars and pop up overlays allow for engaging and interactive content that gives a professional web presence.
