Gethin Jenkins Testimonial Year


As the official design and website supplier to the Gethin Jenkins Testimonial Year, we were delighted to get our glad rags on and head over to The Principality Stadium for the launch last night. With drinks, canapés and a Q&A in the home dressing room with Gethin, Martyn Williams and Dan Biggar, it was a great night to kick off the year ahead.

As Wales’ most capped player and the world’s most capped prop of all time, we were hardly surprised when Gethin won Testimonial of the Year, but we were ecstatic when he chose us to be his design and website partner. Our design team have been working hard on the Gethin Jenkins’ designs for months, so it was nice to have some great feedback about all their hard work last night.

The logo design makes a point of featuring the fact that Gethin played in the number 1 shirt but does it with a sense of subtlety. We kept things simple by just using Gethin’s name but replacing of the two ‘I’s with one elongated number 1.

Both the website and brochure feature the branding that we carefully created for the project, with a strong emphasis on the logo. We also worked on last night’s event branding and signage, so it was great to see that dotted around the venue.

We also made a cheeky appearance in the promotional brochure for the event. We decided to make a bit of a tongue-in-cheek reference to Gethin’s famous nickname!

With many more events lined up over the coming year, there’s still plenty of opportunities to celebrate Gethin’s career and achievements. The next event will take place in The Gherkin in London.  

Given the work that we have done for both the Cardiff Blues and the WRU, it’s no secret that we’re massive rugby fans here at upriseVSI! It’s an exciting year for the rugby community, and we’re delighted to come together to celebrate a true hero and champion of Welsh rugby.
