Turning the region orange

West Midlands Trains

Lighting up a brand with a local focus and demonstrating our robust multidisciplinary skills in the process

West Midland Trains - Turning the Region Orange


We were commissioned to deliver a unique programme of activity within key Midlands regions that feature on the West Midlands Railway (WMR) line to create excitement and drive brand awareness, underpinned by WMR’s key consumer messages.


Our research highlighted the busiest train stations across the network, where we concentrated our activity for maximum impact.


We illuminated or dressed 14 recognisable monuments in key towns along the WMR line in the new orange brand colour. We partnered with Birmingham Mayor, Andy Street and delivered a robust media relations, social and influencer strategy to secure coverage.
