Whether you’re a Brisbane native or new to the area, you’re guaranteed to discover something new when the locks come off 90+ of the city’s most recognisable buildings for the annual Brisbane Open House on October 7th and 8th.
Now in its eighth year, the event has gained steady momentum and at JSAcreative, we couldn’t be happier to have been there from the very start.
Our partnership with Brisbane Open House has seen us play a supporting role in the overwhelming success that the event has achieved year on year, starting with the creation of the logo and continuing across the guidebooks and pocket maps as well as the website and a range of downloadable digital assets including signage for participating buildings.
While the temptation of discovering what lies beyond closed doors is incentive enough for most, JSA’s Account Director, Carla Steadman, says that the guidebooks go above and beyond, packing in great activities including walking tours, special events and concerts.
‘This year we’ve streamlined the design of the guidebook, but we haven’t cut out any of the rich detail or great recommendations that will undoubtedly pique the interest of any urban adventurer.’
‘Unlike previous years, this guidebook will be available with a suggested gold coin donation alone rather than a full price purchase, keeping the door open to more potential visitors than in past years.’
And it’s not just the extensive itinerary of activities that is likely to send Brisbanites out their front door; with a number of new locations opening to the wider public for the first time, foot traffic is expected to increase.
‘This year the public will have access to the new government building at 1 William Street which is sure to be a favourite. They will also be able to visit the heritage listed Ross Roy Villa, as well as Anna Meares Velodrome ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.’
With a whopping 73, 787 website visits last year, the site has played a crucial part for the public to plan their day, and we couldn’t be more excited to have our work on show again for what is expected to be an even bigger year for Brisbane Open House.
