THE CHALLENGE

LCB were looking to appoint a new agency, with a view to refreshing their overall image, whilst creating a consistent visual language and communication strategy across all of their touch points.

OUR SOLUTION

We created a campaign, with an overarching idea that fed into everything, from prospectuses to online banners and promotional literature. The idea was simple - ‘Make it.’ The concept worked on several levels; talking to students about being able to start their future with LCB, as well as on a very literal level in terms of physically making things. 

The idea allowed us to use different copy for different promotions - ‘Make It Here’ was the line that held everything together for the School Leaver's guide, whilst ‘Make it Happen’ was a perfect fit for the Adult prospectus and subsequent promotions. Working closely with freelance copywriter Jenny Yeardley, we allowed the core idea of ‘making it’ to permeate the copy, whilst ensuring it wasn’t overdone.

We deconstructed the College’s logo and used these graphic elements to work with the photography to create a distinct and ownable look and feel.

We started working with Simon at the start of 2017, he has worked on various projects including print and digital and he has an excellent understanding of the print process. He is a great designer, extremely creative and interprets briefs very well. His communication is excellent and he keeps you updated at each stage of the project. We are delighted with the work he has produced so far and would highly recommend his services.
