We have been working with schools, colleges and unis for over 16 years now. We have learned an awful lot along the way and have created what we think is a pretty impressive portfolio work for our clients in the sector.

We know that future students and the people they trust to advise them are sophisticated and resourceful in how they gather and make sense of information. We also know there isn’t a stereotypical or ideal pupil – ‘selling’ education today means addressing a complex mix of factors. Your institution is unique. It has its own character. Capturing that individuality and expressing it in design is a process we are particularly good at.

St Louise’s College, Belfast

We worked with St Louise’s College to create and produce their 2018 Prospectus.

We knew that this publication had to:

  • be easy and intuitive to use;
  • communicate core info effectively;
  • be visually clear and effective through use of imagery and typography; and
  • provide the right mix of information on educational standards, school life and pastoral care.

We used previous prospectuses as our starting point and discussed their pros and cons with the St Louise’s marketing team. We also looked at the school’s target demographic and catchment area. We used what we learned to create some design concepts. The concept chosen by St Louise’s was a vibrant and modern progression from previous years’ designs and allowed more white space around the narrative and images, which made it clear and reader-friendly.

From concepts to final print, we worked closely with the St Louise’s team. Every step was scheduled, every process was documented. Even at the final artwork stage, we welcomed the team to sit with the designer in our studio to make any final minor amendments before sign-off. This is how we like to work.

But it’s not just about great design and exemplary client relationships. We know print and digital inside-out. We are always looking for opportunities to add value, ensure cost effectiveness and apply new standards and tech. The education sector presents unique challenges: we have the experience to meet them with you.
