Powerful School
Logo & Brand Design
for Sherborne House School.

We developed the existing brand identity of Sherborne House School which… created a link between the current brand elements and ultimately provided a cohesive look and feel across the Sherborne House School marketing materials and visual brand.

The Golden Thread.

 

We initially dissected our notes and creative brief from our Discovery Call session and researched a little deeper into Sherborne House School and the golden thread that weaves throughout everything they do.

We aimed to build a cohesive brand story and visual identity around the existing elements that form the Sherborne House School brand.

A modernised version of the existing logo and and stronger link between the brand elements will improve the overall visual identity. It will provide a consistent and high-quality premium brand that they can feel proud of.

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 researched the golden ratio and patterns of tree rings, but the overall brand and the golden thread aspect started to feel and become diluted.

This ultimately reaffirmed the strength of the golden thread and that the best way to align the names of the pupil houses (which aren’t changeable) and building names was to design a set of iconography that represents each house and building, the style would align with the golden thread element that weaves throughout the marketing materials to showcase how it also entwines within the houses.

Brand Overview.

Updated Logo & Brand Mark.

We’ve incorporated the original HS from the Sherborne Hous School logo to reflect their heritage, but we introduced a contemporary shiled to bring it into the modern era.

 

Typefaces.

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.

Colour Palette.

The developed 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 gradeint so the magic is visible regardless.
