Honest was approached by Cottenham Village College to design the main school and sixth form prospectus’s. They were so happy with the designs and quality of print that they asked Honest to develop their brand identity, simplifying it and making it more sophisticated to enhance the schools image and help it to compete against the other schools in the area. We then redesigned the website building it on a content management system that was easy for the school’s marketing department to control. The website was developed as a ‘responsive’ website which automatically adapts to the screen size that it is being viewed on i.e PC, Tablet or mobile. A suit of photography was also commissioned for the school corridors.
I first worked with Honest shortly after I took up post as Executive Headteacher at Cottenham Academy. The academy is a federation of two schools. We were looking for a new prospectus for one of the schools, Cottenham Village College. I was impressed with Honest at the very first meeting. As I got to know them even better, I was even more impressed. Not only did they listen carefully to what we said, they also developed a real sense of feel for the place and our aspirations and goals.
The prospectus has been praised by everybody who has seen it. It reads well, looks great and conveys exactly the right message. As a result of this, we asked Honest to develop our website. Once again the feedback from users has been incredibly positive. To summarise, I now view Honest not so much as a business but as a partner. I would commend them without reservation.Steve Ellison - Executive Headteacher
