Innovate  UK  ||  Rebooting  Innovation




Nucco Brain was appointed by Innovate UK to support the organisation in reaching out to a wider target audience through their digital marketing strategy.



Innovate UK is the UK's Innovation Agency, they fund and support science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy. Nucco Brain was appointed by Innovate UK to support the organisation in reaching out to a wider target audience through their digital marketing strategy.

The main task involved rebranding their YouTube Channel while producing new video series formats to share across their social media platforms.
Using our knowledge of branding and video, our team developed different extensions of the Innovate UK brand, each with a distinct visual style.
These included animated guidelines, format structure creation and visual designs that have been used by all Innovate UK’s content service providers to generate consistent productions for online content.

This work contributed to achieving Innovate UK’s objective of increasing online awareness - their YouTube subscriptions increased by 650% and content views by 875% following the rebranding. The organisation has registered a continuous upward trend of online engagement over the past year with results such as 125+ organic placements with external, relevant publishers and sector influencers.

"The insight fed into our content strategy contributed significantly to us reinventing our approach to content; this coupled with distribution expertise has massively increased our visibility" 
Pete Wilson - Digital Communications Manager at Innovate UK




360 Video Adaptation



Based on the same concept as the original ‘Future Predictions’ YouTube series, our team created a 360 animated video projected inside a dome at Innovate UK’s 2017 tradeshow at the NEC. The aim of this video was to help Innovate UK engage with its industry partners and the general public on the subject of technological innovation at the tradeshow.

Future Predictions 360, won gold at the Indigo Design Awards in the mix media / moving image category.




Projected inside an Igloo dome, the video launched Innovate UK's Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, a new government initiative that aims to bring together the UK’s world-leading research with business to meet the major industrial and societal challenges of our time.
