#Hull2017Live update

Twitter and Facebook were buzzing following our update event on Friday at Hull Truck Theatre. Thanks for your support! We’ve compiled a few of the most shared posts so far!


Hull International ‏@HUInternational
Even @2017Hull‘s new brand has been shaped by the very community it promotes. This city belongs to everyone. #Hull

Jack Chamberlain @Voucher_Boy
Such a brilliant @2017Hull update today only feels right after seeing three excellent and entirely different shows this week, top stuff

Jamie Potter @jamiepotter
I like @2017Hull’s ideas, especially around “coming back to ours”. Logo is just one part and works best laid over images or in vivid colour.

Rabbey @RachaelCAbbey
So excited for @2017Hull , branding on point. Cool, cheeky & all about communities. Top work @philipbatty, bring on an inspirational year!

Park Bench Theatre @ParkBenchPoets
on fire for Hull for a radical season of transforming experiences in this city after listening to the @2017Hull team #MoreToTheStory

Jack Shoemark @CaptainOx
Love the branding @2017Hull

Reg Tait @regmtait
New #Hull2017 branding and website look brilliant! #Hull #HullYes

Dominic Love @DomLove7
Really liking the new @2017Hull brand – few people unhappy it wasn’t designed by Hull co. – thing is it was 100% created in and by Hull

Alice Thomson @alicethomson
All feels returning from the announcement of @2017Hull. So glad I moved back here. EVERYONE BACK TO OURS! #Hull2017

Anna Chesters @annachesters
LOVING the @2017Hull slogan: ‘Everyone back to ours’ #Hull2017


Rachel E: I think it is great, it has a contemporary feel which is just what we needed. Sometimes bringing in outside talent is what is needed to get the best for a project. City of Culture shouldn’t exclude ‘outsiders’ it just means we are the centre of cultural conversation in that year

Joseph C: Fantastic new brand. Clever, clean and something I’d be proud to use and be a part of. Exactly the kind of brand I hoped CoC would get.

Denise SIt clearly and loudly proclaims HULL – brilliant!
