challenge

Rescue a struggling website and help High Storrs School to realise better working practice to unlock the potential in their marketing collateral.

approach

High Storrs School first contacted us to help when their Wordpress website had begun to struggle and cause major issues. We quickly built a makeshift website to keep them online but it was always the plan to meet their team and set about designing a new permanent site with a root and branch change of direction to help meet the changing needs of the school.

At the same time we were asked to look over the a course directory for the school 6th form, which was proving a headache for the marketing team to collate, manage and print in house. The old document was a mixture of individual departments of the school doing their own thing with a final larger document being printed in-house on the school colour copier which was both labour and budget intensive.

With both jobs we wanted High Storrs to see the benefit of a unified design process that allowed the school to shine in the best light possible. We designed both the website then the school prospectus with this in mind and guided the client through the journey highlighting where cost and time could be saved to benefit their budget and dramatically improve the way the school presented itself through its marketing collateral.

outcome

Umber Creative saved High Storrs School time and budget whilst raising the standards of all their outward facing collateral. Through smart use of technology, print buying and design we gave High Storrs School the tools to successfully sell the school offering, meet Ofsted's requirements and increase impact.

Design and Print - High Storrs Sixth Form Prospectus and High Storrs Lower School Prospectus

Rae Helm, Communications and Marketing Co-ordinator at High Storrs School said "We commissioned Umber Creative to produce our School and Sixth Form Prospectuses at the start of the academic year (2018-19) ready for the 2019-20 recruitment and beyond. We worked closely with Kevin and the team to create a brief that would best suit our needs, arrange photography and come up with an eye-catching design."

"We’ve been thrilled with how attentive Umber Creative has been; really listening to our needs to create a complete design overhaul that allowed us to reduce our production costs whilst improving our overall product. What we now have are two sleek and comprehensive documents that reflect the creativity of the School whilst maintaining a truly professional and academic look."

"Working with Umber Creative has, and always has been, an absolute pleasure. The staff are friendly and warm when dealing with our many questions and needs, and their capability to produce high quality, even on a tight timescale, is second to none."

"We highly recommend Umber Creative for your print (and digital!) needs and will continue to use them!"

We used an energetic colour pallet and dynamic typography to reflect the vibrant and diverse lifestyle High Storrs has cultivated for its students.
