Project Clients: Royal Scottish National Orchestra
With the incredible musical talent of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) on our doorstep, we are delighted to have played a part in the prestigious orchestra’s 125th anniversary celebrations.
The brief was to create a dynamic launch animation that would celebrate the return of the orchestra’s artistic team to Scotland over the next two years while reflecting the vibrancy of their refreshed branding and new logo developed by The Union.
We rose to the challenge by weaving colourful paint splashes around footage of six conductors in action. In a nod to the dance theme planned for the new season, the animation was synced to a light-‐hearted extract from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet.
The video took centre stage at the media launch in the Glasgow Concert Halls on the 17th March and the RSNO is delighted with such a special anniversary gift from their 'creative neighbours'.
Bill Gaughan, Founding Director of 999 Design said: “999 were thrilled to be asked to partner with RSNO on such an important anniversary and are delighted to mark this momentous occasion with an equally vibrant animation to launch the celebrations.”
Daniel Pollitt, Communications Manager at RSNO said: “Our friends at 999 have pulled out all the stops in providing us with this delightful animation which ties in so beautifully with our new branding by The Union, all with the absolute minimum of client interference. That’s really the key. If you feel confident about the ability of your chosen agency giving them the freedom to fully invest their creative potential often leads to excellent results.”
