The Williamstown Seagulls. The Williamstown Football Club was first formed around 1860, being one of the earliest clubs to help formulate and play Victorian rules football. We have an ongoing relationship with them that has seen us create a wide range of unusual products, which we love.
Approach - Outside the Box Thinking - Walls, lockers, and supporters
This business relationship came about after a referral from AFL Chairman of Victoria referred the club’s CEO to Stagshead Brand Architects.
The Williamstown Seagulls Club have a solid standing and long lineage in the AFL. Over time, Stagshead has developed a strong and successful relationship with them, providing unique merchandising needs as requested, continuing to keep their brand visible and prestigious.
With an already established brand identity, the club knows exactly what they want for their branding and merchandising needs.
Often they approach Stagshead to deliver unique marketing materials that sit outside our normal services, and we go out of our way to deliver what they need. Additional marketing projects with the club have included creating branded flags for supporters to wave, branding for player lockers and branded wallpaper for the clubrooms and gym.
Goal - Increased Reach and Visibility
To make their brand more visible, particularly to TV audiences, and to create functional branding and sponsorship material.

Task - Sponsorship football signage, team merchandise
