Southampton is the major city on the South coast of England and is also one of the regions fastest growing, with a population of over 250,00 and a catchment area of over 2 million people.

The client operates as an independent nonprofit Business Improvement District who recognises that businesses can influence the future of City Centres.


The client is after an original festive elf character to use in their Christmas campaign around the city of Southampton.

The character needs to represent the following qualities: cheeky, funny, bubbly, happy and festive.

If you are on one of the creative courses that deal with Illustration, Graphic design, CGI or any type of visual communication, this is your time to apply your creative and technical knowledge and get your work recognised by being part of this local campaign.

This is a competition opportunity, which means from all the selected candidates one will be crowned the winner and win a £100 Westquay voucher.
