Our Approach

For effortless School, Academy, College and University branding and promotion in the UK, it is necessary to ensure that everything falls into the right place. Hence, we have adopted a four stepped approach namely Consult, Design, Develop, Install / Support.


When it comes to developing School, College and University websites, prospectus, signs or promotional videos, we first prefer to have a thorough discussion with a client centric approach so that we grasp your requirements and ideas. Suggestions are offered and different concepts are discussed in detail before moving on to the design phase.


In this phase, we aim to deliver designs that go well beyond your perceptions, imaginations and expectations – designs that truly complement your purpose. Once a design has been selected, our Graphics Team will come up with a mockup, a visual that gives you an idea about the look of your website, school prospectus, signs and graphics. Once it is approved, we move on to the development phase.


We go to great lengths to get the look and feel right. As small details can make a huge difference, we incorporate any last minute tweaks while at the same time ensuring that the design or the concept are not compromised in anyway.


When the final product is ready and we have your go-ahead, we will launch the school website, deliver the prospectus, install the signs, install the graphics or hand over the school promotional video in a way that suits you. In addition, we will always be there for any support, help or guidance.

Our Team

We are small but committed team intent on developing products that showcase and promote the impact of Schools, Colleges and Universities. Based in the UK and India, we focus on developing incredible solutions that capture the very essence of education. This facilitates effective and effortless school branding and promotion throughout the UK.
