  13. In 2015 Leader Communications was invited to pitch for the re-branding of the Warwickshire-based Heritage Motor Centre, which would now be known as the British Motor Museum. After winning the pitch, Leader Communications got to work on meeting the requirements of the brief. The brand was created to appeal to a range of audiences from car enthusiasts to families. The bold, confident typeface used to enforce the prestige of the visitor attraction and the union flag is used subtly within tyre tread flashes in red, white and blue to reflect the fact that the attraction is home to the largest collection of British cars in the world. It certainly met with approval from the client. The new brand was then rolled out through all of the museums printed and online collateral and we have since been re-appointed to continue working with them into 2017. British Motor Museum01 Leader Communications Ltd.
  14. Leader have recently started working with Birmingham based tourist attraction The Wonderful World of Trains and Planes to create a summer campaign of activities to increase footfall. We developed a fusion approach to a Summer campaign of activities, which included traditional PR, Radio advertising, a new leaflet and social media activity, including Facebook advertising, all pointing their end customer to their brand new Leader built website for event information and ticket booking. We also created the character ‘Toot’ to demonstrate the three key areas of the attraction, trains, planes and cars. Leader Communications developed and created the character style and personality and produced character visualisations for approval from client.
