This year (2016) Duke of Uke will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary! Within CIP we have the opportunity to help celebrate this landmark and create visuals showcasing the spirit and energy of the Duke of Uke.

Through this project we have the opportunity to create an illustration based window display in either 2D or 3D form, an informative or entertaining gif animation for the Duke of Uke, 5 Visuals for Instagram and posting strategy and a visual identity for the 10th anniversary.

I’m currently stuck between creating  a gif animation for the Duke of Uke, and creating the 5 visuals for the Instagram. As I research the Ukulele and those who play it (both in groups and professionally) I hope my choice will become clearer.

To start my research, I’ve looked at the Duke of Uke’s current social media and website and picked out current art work and images. This will give me a clear idea of their style and current branding and help me pick out elements I can use in my own work for them.
