Project Description

Conisborough College is a purpose built campus which opened in 2009. Students benefit from state of the art technologies and resources including a very generous computer/student ratio; a purpose built sports hall, dance studio and fitness room as well as an astroturf outside. We have specialist teaching rooms for textiles, music, art, design technology and science.

The school is offering unique opportunities to all its students as they strive to raise standards across all areas of learning and personal development, allowing every student to achieve everything they are capable of. Conisborough College are passionate about making a difference to the lives of their young people, ensuring that they have every opportunity to succeed by identifying and nurturing each one’s individual talents.

The aim of all staff is to provide all students with inspiring opportunities and experiences supported with careful monitoring, reporting and assessment. The students bring with them a diversity of experiences and backgrounds both socially and culturally and the school community is built on the strengths of this local diversity.

The Challenge

Having created a new logo for Conisborough College, Pylon Design Consultants Limited were commissioned to start building the brand identity by designing and producing a range of stationery including; a letterhead, continuation sheet and a compliments slip. The range needed to incorporate the new logo but look smart and professional whilst also reflecting a friendly, inviting appearance. The stationery is one of the first items that will introduce the public to the new brand and consequently there had to be a fine balance between professionalism and creativity.

The Solution

It was important that Pylon Design Consultants Limited created a look and tone for all future items within the overall Conisborough College brand. Introducing creativity gradually throughout the different items, allowing the public to grasp the vision, was paramount in Pylon Design’s thought process. A smart, elegant and professional approach utilising the corporate typefaces and colour gave the stationery a distinctive look while the creative use of the stags head on the reverse of the compliments slip enabled the brand to be bold and exciting while setting the tone with a glimpse of what could be achieved for future material. All items were printed in conventional litho method and the letterhead and continuation sheet were also prepared as Word templates to be used internally.
