Solent Celebrate Newport 1800 1056

Solent are proud to have recently completed an eye-catching project celebrating Newport’s role as the Island’s historic county town. Working closely with the Newport Business Association Solent designed a range of Street Banners each with their own distinctive and vivid design.

Inspired by the passion points for the project each features a recognisable Newport landmark, including Watchbell Lane, St Thomas Minster, the Victoria Monument, the Guildhall and the Tudor Arch at Church Litten.

Working with local stakeholders, Solent created a vibrant and distinctive campaign

The project created in response to comments from Newport residents and businesses gathered as part of the Shaping Newport programme in 2017, where local people were concerned that Newport was losing its identity.  The banners highlight the range of attractions the town centre offers to help offset the increase in online shopping.

Shaping Newport is a partnership project between the Isle of Wight Council, Newport and Carisbrooke Parish Council and the Newport Business Association.  It forms part of the area regeneration programme for the Isle of Wight and has created the Place Plan for the County Town of Newport.

Bringing colour to the high street, our team created designs inspired by project passion points.
Find banners throughout Newport on the high street and town squares.

Here at Solent, Newport is where we call our home so this campaign and the wider Shaping Newport project is especially important to us.  Tim Addison, director of Solent said: “As one of the founding members of the Newport Business Association, Solent were proud to work on this exciting and very visible aspect of the Shaping Newport.

“We worked closely with the project team to create this original artwork inspired by both recognisable landmarks and the diverse range of things to do in Newport.

“These banners around the town will highlight these positive aspects of our County town, whilst bringing a splash of colour into the high street.”
