Creative students design the way for NHS trust

Graphic design students at Clarendon Sixth Form College create branding to promote local NHS trust.

Students from the college have created a new brand identity for Tameside and Glossop NHS Foundation Trust’s estates and facilities department.

The project, which has been organised by David Kinder, medical equipment manager at the trust and Laszlo Gyongyosi, teacher at Clarendon Sixth Form College, aimed to create a logo and branding to help the department recruit new staff members and apprentices.

Students were given six weeks to creare with a variety of designs as part of their current coursework project on corporate identity, with one being selected as the winning design.

During this time they met with David to discuss a brief, came up with draft ideas, created their finished designs and presented them to David and Paul Featherstone, director of estates and facilities.

Student Robbie Rigby was selected as the winning designer, with his design’s flexibility for use on different platforms such as social media and banner stands being praised. He was awarded a £50 voucher for his efforts.

Laszlo, said: “I am very proud of the students for stepping up and taking on what is quite a difficult project to manage and deliver. They have done an amazing job and their designs were all of a very high standard. They have worked well with David and his team to develop this from start to finish and to see it completed is great. Congratulations to Robbie on his winning designs, it is well deserved.”
