An AJ Retrofit Awards 2012 Finalist
The college had won funding for a regeneration project that included renovations to reception, the library and cafés. Our task was to bring the college to life through rebranding and interior graphics. The college wanted to keep their logo so we worked on placing this in a prominent position.
Waltham Forest College isn’t about just studying a subject. Students gain life skills too, learning to be team players and to respect others. We reflected this in the new identity, by surveying a section of students and using their answers to inform the colour balance of an infographic chart. Depending on the answers given the chart changed, creating a fluid system that changes and evolves.
With the new rebranding up and the architecture looking stunning, the combined visual impact created a really great atmosphere to work and learn in. A reminder to all of the immense power of good design. Attendance levels are even up at the college! Credits to Platform 5 architects, Richard Hopkinson architects
