    Coastal rebranding is another case study, Walton-on-the-Naze or Blackpool. I'm not sure if it is compulsory though. We also did London Docklands and London 2012. There's also rural rebranding in low-income countries, for which we did Uganda.

    As far as I'm aware, you don't need a tornado case study. I haven't heard any mention of one, but I think you need to know about Midlands floods of 2007 in addition to Boscastle.
