goalsoul take industry commissions to new heights
It was a goalsoul advert in FOURFOURTWO that first caught the eye of Jonathan Hull, owner of Workplatform, a UK-based company specialising in the supply and service of work access platforms across the globe. Jonathan had been thinking about exciting and alternative ways to promote his business, and wanted to celebrate the rich history of the access platform industry. As a fan of goalsoul's work, he wondered if we'd be interested in helping him to develop a range of bespoke-designed t-shirts.
The aim of the commission was to utilise our creative approach towards football and apply those techniques to a whole new subject area. We were tasked with designing, producing and delivering a range of unique and collectible t-shirts. The objective was to raise awareness of Workplatform as a leading brand with a deep understanding of its sector; with the relevant knowledge, experience and commitment to deliver the best possible service to a global customer base.
The first three designs in the Workplatform Collection by goalsoul, look at the origins and foundation of the industry in the 1960s, and the cultural backdrop and climate into which the work access platform was born.
Design 1: Moon - Reaching New Heights
Design 2: 1966 - Preserving the Spirit
Design 3: In the Sky with Diamonds
This is just the beginning... there’s another 1960s design scheduled for release in the autumn, followed by one shirt per quarter covering all subsequent decades upto and including the present. Read the full press release here.
'I'd spent hours online trying to find somebody that could think 'outside the box' and offer me what we have ultimately received from goalsoul.
After a goalsoul advert had caught my attention in Four Four Two football magazine, I decided to order a few t-shirts to check out the quality of the product and level of service before I made contact. I couldn’t have been more impressed on both counts, and after receiving an almost instant and courteous reply to an email enquiry I'd sent to goalsoul regarding the availability of children’s sizes, I decided to make contact and arrange a meeting.
From that meeting, we haven’t looked back. Thanks to goalsoul, we now have a suite of stunning t-shirts and a strategy and partnership that will take us into 2014 and maybe beyond. The communication and coordination, the design concepts and artwork, and the ability to achieve deadlines and deliver, have all been first class. The only problem we've had is choosing which designs to go with… as we love all their ideas!!!'
