Mackerel Sky Events

Services: Website / Illustration / Templates

Mackerel Sky Events was an award-winning creative events production agency, working with corporate, public sector, third sector and creative industry clients.

For over ten years, Mackerel Sky offered a full event management service down to concentrating on one or more of specific areas for a client: from Health & Safety Planning to Traffic Management; Volunteer co-ordination to Sponsor management. The company is recently retired for the director to move on to different pastures further afield, but it was a pleasure working with them.


The responsive website was built using a Wix template, adjusted for use with the Mackerel Sky brand styling. Illustrations were created for use with infographics information and showcased the wide variety of events that the client had provided their services for. 

MS Word template

Oakshed was asked to design and set up an MS Word template for a promotional flyer, allowing the client to update content for future editions.

MS Powerpoint Portfolio templates

Oakshed was commissioned to set up MS Powerpoint templates for the client’s portfolio case studies, for use in their presentations and pitches. As an editable  template, this allowed the client to update content and add further case studies in the future.

Pirates on the Prom

Oakshed was commissioned to create an event logo, website and social media assets for one of Mackerel Sky’s regular event clients that aimed to break a World Record of ‘Largest Gathering Of Pirates’ in Penzance, Cornwall.

“Oakshed always deliver brilliant design concepts that respond to and develop the requirement so it’s more than we thought it could be. Hanna has worked on our websites, print and social design outputs and consistently produces the goods (and she’s lovely to work with too!)”
