We Design GFirst LEP’s Landmark Draft Local Industrial Strategy
We were thrilled to be selected by GFirst LEP to design one of their most crucial documents in recent history – the draft Local Industrial Strategy.
After an initial trial period across a number of key regions, the government put out a call for LEPs across the country to devise a Local Industrial Strategy – a series of proposals to increase local economic productivity.
Some LEPs have already released their documents, but ever the trailblazer, GFirst LEP wanted to stand out from the rest with a dynamic, easy-to-read document. They approached us to bring their draft Local Industrial Strategy to life, and we were more than happy to take on the challenge.
We produced two documents for the LEP – the draft LIS and its evidence base. Both documents were huge, with complex graphs and plenty of facts and figures, so we took the time to create documents that featured lush photography, plenty of colour and simple infographics that highlighted key items and made the strategy as a whole easier to digest.
The draft Local Industrial Strategy was released at GFirst LEP’s annual review to great applause. It drove high levels of traffic to the website, where members of the business community and beyond were able to have their say and input into the final version. This consultation will shape the future of Gloucestershire as a county and major economic power in the South West, and we were honoured to play a part in it.
