Festival of Tomorrow partners with GEL Studios

By Nick Batten on 11 January, 2023

Swindon-based creative agency, Gel Studios has been named as a major partner for The Festival of Tomorrow and will be providing all creative services for the 2023 event.

Centred in Swindon, The Festival of Tomorrow is an exploration of the wonders of science, innovation and the arts. Organised by Rod Hebden and Louise Halliday of New Elements, the festival aims to share knowledge and research which together will shape the future of our world. 

Over the past six months GEL Studios has worked with the Festival of Tomorrow to upgrade its website and add new functionalities which will greatly benefit the organisers and those attending. The new website, which went live on Monday, 19th December 2022, features resources about the festival and its contributions to the local community.  

As well as website design and development support, the team at GEL Studios will also be providing graphic design and marketing services support too. These efforts will raise awareness of the festival, and hopes even more people are able to enjoy the shows, talks, interact with the latest science and technology gadgets and speak with the exhibitors. GEL Studios’ marketing team will also be attending the festival to include live coverage on their social media channels.  

This year, the festival will be held on 17th-18th February at the Deanery Academy in Swindon. Events are also being held around Swindon Town Centre, The Brunel Centre, STEAM Museum and Health Hydro from 11th -19th February. 

Graeme Leighfield, Managing Director of GEL Studios, said, “Giving back to the community is what drives us every single day, and our commitment to helping others has never been stronger. This work makes a huge difference to our community and is a true reflection of our vision, which is inspiring change through creativity.” 

Rod Hebden, Director of The Festival of Tomorrow, said, “It’s been a fantastic experience, yet again, working with Graeme, and the team at GEL Studios. The new website they’ve created for us is absolutely stunning, and I’ve no doubt it’ll give us a stronger foundation for all our engagement throughout the year.  

“It’s been great to see the range of services GEL Studios now offers. The design work they’re producing is excellent, they’ve breathed new life and structure into our social media, and the whole team is just a delight to work with – professional, efficient and always on hand when we’ve needed them. We couldn’t be more pleased!”
