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

Lewisham Council had worked directly with Conisborough College in producing a series of street banners positioned on lamp posts over 5 years ago. Pylon Design were approached to design a series of banners to replace the old ones using the new school brand while remaining within the guidelines set by Lewisham Council for Highway signage. A tough brief to announce the school, its message and close proximity without causing danger to road users.

The Solution

The new Conisborough College brand had been approved and the street banners needed to be up and visible to the public at the start of the new school year. Pylon Design incorporated the corporate logo, colours, typefaces, school message and the curve graphic to make an attractive, interesting, informative and branded banner that was sympathetic to the surrounding environment and gave Conisborough College a presence in the area. Lewisham Council produced and installed the banners from the design and artwork prepared by Pylon Design.
