Time to refresh your brand?

Deciding to redesign a logo is a big step for any school or college. There may be sentimental attachment to the logo; perhaps it was designed by a student or is significant to another key moment in the schools history.

With the change in how people use media, it is crucial that the logo works across a range of mediums, particularly in digital. Understandably, when many school logos were created this wasn’t taken into account and the logo can look dated and pixelated.

The design team at Academy Creative are highly experienced in developing brands for schools. A rebrand can often be a frightening prospect, but the knowledge Academy Creative have in the industry means we can make the process smooth and straightforward.

Launching a new logo means there is a need for new stationary, template documents, prospectus’ and signage. These are all areas which Academy Creative can support schools with.

St Bede’s Primary Academy became part of the Nicholas Postgate Academy Trust in 2015 and viewed this as a perfect opportunity to refreshing their school brand. The brief was they were looking for a modern design which would look great across various channels, including uniforms and the school website. Anna Coulson, Executive Headteacher, St Bede’s Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy:

The support we had from mm&d was fantastic. They took on board the feedback from our whole school community and created a modern take on the previous brand.

The last school Ofsted inspection judged us as outstanding and we feel we have a brand to match the continued success of the school”
