FOUR create new logo and branding for Hellesdon Sixth Form

The Wensum Trust has invested £278,000 in Hellesdon Sixth Form to provide an improved learning and social environment for students.

As part of this development, FOUR was asked to deliver a new logo and branding solution to support the modern future of the Sixth Form and attract and inspire future students.

FOUR’s creative director, Scott Rozier, who is also a visiting lecturer at Norwich University of the Arts, felt it was important to work with the schools own Graphic Design students from years 11, 12 and 13 as part of the project and held a workshop with them to develop ideas for the new logo, giving the students the opportunity to work with a professional design agency and contribute to their studies. 

FOUR presented various options to The Wensum Trust and they chose a modern option with arrow play and also an ‘H’ – once you spot it you can’t unsee it!

As part of giving The Wensum Trust all the assets they needed to bring the new brand to life, FOUR also produced an animated video of the logo and worked with local signage team CIM to install signage around the sixth form building.

Daniel Thrower, CEO at The Wensum Trust, said: “Can I say a big thank you for again producing some brilliant designs! FOUR always do and that is why I always come to you and also why I educate others to do the same.”

John Smith, Chair of Trustees at The Wensum Trust said: “These new and modern facilities enhance our provision to students who are preparing to take that next step on their future career path. It is extremely important to us as a Trust that the Sixth Form provides many opportunities for aspirational young people in a supportive environment and this is enhanced by the unique partnerships we have with organisations such as Norwich City’s CSF, Norwich Theatre and Lovell. I am delighted with the new study centre and logo and I hope that our students enjoy it for many years to come.”

FOUR was also invited to the unveiling of the new logo and study centre, which was opened by former Norwich City Football Club player, Adam Drury. Adam has a special connection with the Sixth Form – as Football & Education Manager for Norwich City Community Sports Foundation’s Football and Education Programme, which partners with The Wensum Trust, he works with a number of the students. 

It is always lovely working with The Wensum Trust and the new building looks fantastic.
