Consultancy, design and branding services for a growing local Multi-Academy Trust.
Full marketing and creative solution for Forward as One and its Trust schools
An ambitious and growing Multi-Academy Trust in the North West, CRE8 has worked with Forward As One for a number of years to develop a distinctive and professional brand for the Trust, to implement the brand throughout Trust schools and to plan and implement brand rollout for new schools joining the organisation.
Having developed Forward As One’s brand visuals in 2015, CRE8 has continued to support the Trust in brand rollout throughout its schools. The client sought professional advice and creative services to ensure a slick and professional scheme of brand implementation, including the delivery of a full rebrand for a new Trust school.
Our team worked closely with Forward As One to create a Trust logo which complemented its ambitious and forward-thinking organisation. Subsequently, we have supported the client in rolling out the brand through the delivery of school signage and printed material, including folders and prospectuses. We have supported Forward As One consistently throughout, with expert education sector consultancy and advice backed by a strong understanding of the team, its vision and the Trust’s values.
Bringing on board a new school with a damaged reputation in 2019, Forward As One looked to CRE8 to deliver a full school rebrand. Our Marketing Managers conducted a period of consultancy and exploration with the client before designing a new logo that children are proud to wear, reflecting the school’s new beginnings as well as its local roots.
“The team at CRE8 have worked across the Forward As One CE MAT schools to identify and align their values and brand to our Trust identity. At every step, the team have listened to our vision and have helped shape and evolve our brand identity in order to represent what we stand for. Thank you CRE8!”
Senior Leader, Forward As One CE Multi-Academy Trust
Forward As One’s corporate and professional branding style is now strongly implemented throughout all Trust schools, whilst still retaining schools’ individual identities. Creating one brand from scratch and supporting others with logo redefinition has given each school a refreshed external and internal appearance that reflects Forward As One and Trust schools’ values.
Enjoying excellent client relationships, when bringing a new school into the organisation the Trust’s team works closely with CRE8 to undertake site surveys and to meet key individuals, enabling us to quickly establish priorities and commence a rollout bespoke to each school. We’re delighted to support Forward As One, playing a part in the Trust’s journey as it grows to become an important feature of the local education landscape.
