Together with Art+Believe

World renowed artists Art+Believe - famous for bringing to life communal spaces - were commissioned by us to work their magic on the Old Steine bus shelter directly in front of Brighton's inconic Pavilion.

The shelter has had a unique and dramatic make-over in time for Brighton Pride festival and celebrates the city's diversity, creativity and community spirt.

Graphic artist Daniel Doherty of Art+Believe said: "We've never done a bus shelter before and to have the Pavilion as a backdrop has just been amazing. It's not a typical shelter: it's more like a small, beautiful building with curves and shapes. It's actually a complicated space because it can be seen from everywhere and from every viewpoint."

"We were trusted by Brighton & Hove Buses to create something really exciting and fun that encapsulated the Pride festival. We knew it needed to be dramatic and bold as something more detailed would lose impact."

"We discussed the word that would go on the front of the shelter with the company. We picked 'together' because it was such a positive word. It's the opposite of apart. It's about how little difference there is between us and it says what we were trying to achieve. It's a very important part of the artwork."

Dan and his wife Charlotte and colleague James Prideaux worked on the project over a couple of weeks after evaluating the space and shape for the design and pattern.
