Eyre Peninsula Brand Project

15 years since Eyre Peninsula’s current brand was launched, a review is being undertaken to assess the relevance of it to our region and to ensure Eyre’s positioning moving forward provides a holistic and inclusive regional identity. Join Fuller senior strategists; Will Fuller and Jordaine Chattaway, to discuss the challenges and opportunities of our current brand and explore what a refreshed positioning could look like. In this series of workshops the team will use insights from the August marketing and brand survey completed by 142 community members and further regional research to uncover what could work for our region as a whole.
