Logo & Brand Design
for Sherborne House School.
We developed the brand identity of Sherborne House School by bringing together the existing brand elements, providing a cohesive look and feel across the Sherborne House School marketing materials and visual brand.
The Golden Thread.
We dissected our notes and creative brief from our Discovery Call session and researched a little deeper into Sherborne House School to find the golden thread that weaves throughout everything the school offers.
We aimed to build a cohesive brand story and visual identity around the existing elements that form the Sherborne House School brand, knowing that a modernised version of the logo and stronger link between the brand elements would improve the overall visual identity. It will provide a consistent and high-quality premium brand of which the school could feel proud.
Pupil Houses/Building Names.
Part of our mission was to align the pupil house and building names to the golden thread element of the Sherborne House School brand story; so that there’s a link between them. We explored various options, conscious of not wanting to dilute the strong golden thread theme.
We determined, therefore, that the best way to align the names of the pupil houses (which needed to remain) and building names was to design a set of icons to represents each house and building, aligning the style with the golden thread element that weaves throughout the marketing materials to showcase how it also entwines within the houses.

Updated Logo & Brand Mark.
We incorporated the original HS from the Sherborne House School logo to reflect their heritage, and introduced a contemporary shield to bring it up to date.
The new typefaces, Amiri, Viktorie and Raleway, align with the original brand typefaces but are now accessible and downloadable from Google fonts so that all marketing materials are consistent.
The chosen colour palette delivers a traditional yet modern feel to the overall brand. We advised that the gold elements if printed should be either gold foil or pantone, but to ensure the vision of the golden thread doesn’t feel static and dull if printed in CMYK; we added highlights and a gradient so that the magic is visible regardless.
