For a number of years the college had been aware that its prospectus and marketing material were not as effective as they should be for a modern education provider.
In collaboration with the college we set about rationalising the written content, assessing how best to refine and control the flow of information online and in print.
Commissioned photography, by Susie Rea, brilliantly captured the dynamic of the college, which in conjunction with a strong typographic structure created a backbone for the brands visual framework.
Applied to print literature, online prospectus, advertising, exhibition material, and office collateral, the communication strategy has positioned the college to deal with the next three to five years of growth with ease.
And we also got to inject new life into an established logo along the way.

Traditional and pioneering; the tension generated by these conflicting characteristics help define The Diocese of Down and Dromore. Central to the success of the identity project was the re-crafting of the diocesan crest and careful negotiating with the Office of the Chief Herald of Ireland. The result is a modern heraldic achievement within a D-shaped shield capable of clear reproduction at small scale.

Considered refinement of a classic modernist typeface was the perfect logo solution for one of the UK's most celebrated young architectural practices.
Our approach to the typographic design reflected the practice's ethos and the logotype development has become part of the company's presentation; as an explanation of the attention to detail which defines their work.

The Belfast Bible College website was developed as part of a broad rationalisation of the institution’s complete communication material.
Reducing the dependency on printed collateral was a consideration. However, a more significant aspect was developing online alternatives to the traditional prospectus.
The result is a sophisticated on-the-fly course filter which allows prospective students to quickly narrow and compare courses based on specific parameters.
All website content is controlled and managed directly by the college through Edditt, our powerful content management system.
This course selection facility is also augmented with an online application system.
