RAMSGATE CITY REBRANDBranding • Research • Trademark • UI
Today the residence of Ramsgate, England brag about having the best seafood restaurants, amazing local artists, and beautiful parks, and gorgeous gold sand beaches. As well as museums full of maritime history and miles of secret wartime tunnels beneath their feet. In general seaside towns in England are very historically important. Larger seaside towns, like Brighton, Margate, Blackpool, and Bournemouth, have all re-branded themselves within the last decade to attract younger people.
Ramsgate has a perfect location and atmosphere for commuters to London, creative minds, and a younger crowd. With an aging population, these are the type of people the town needs to attract to survive. Unlike it’s larger neighbors, Ramsgate is just missing the “look” to attract them. The goal of this project was to give Ramsgate a refreshing youthful visual design language that still honors the town’s centuries of rich history.
