RETHINK Newspaper

Thursday, 14 September, 2017

Soon after I joined BOF’s Design Team back in July I realised I had joined at one of the company’s busiest times - the run up to COUP; a bi-annual event for procurement staff in the Higher Education sector.


This year’s event was hosted at Swansea University’s Science and Innovation Campus. Located in Swansea Bay, the campus was furnished by BOF back in 2015 and still remains their largest project to date (read more about the Swansea University project here).

As creating inspiring environments for clients is what BOF does best, our exhibition stand at COUP was the perfect opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in our 3D virtual environments.

Along with designing the vinyl graphics for our exhibition stand and the branded VR headsets, we also wanted a way to share some of the interesting articles that both BOF and our manufactures have written. The solution? A newspaper called reTHINK. Issue one made its debut at COUP, proving very popular with delegates!


We wanted the newspaper to work alongside our VR experience so one of the pages has a selection of QR codes enabling you to scan and view the VR environments wherever you are. The video below shows how reTHINK and the BOF headset work together.

From biophilc design to how acoustics affect workplace productivity, the newspaper covers a wide range of content, so grab yourself a cup of tea, click the download button below and have a read of the very first issue of reTHINK!
