FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) is an organisation with a very powerful message to communicate, addressing the issues of Racism within Football. They use major football events such as The Champions League and The Euros Championship to communicate their messages to Clubs, fans, stakeholders and the general Footballing family.

Catalogue Design Services – Surridge Sports
• Catalogue Design
Northstar Design is proud to say it has been designing and printing catalogues for Surridge Sports for over 10 years, each time creating a design that is more eye-catching and ‘striking’ than the last.
Last year we decided to step away from the traditional A4 catalogue format and proposed a folded A2 catalogue/wall poster which when opened out displayed the whole range of Rugby or Football kits.
A successful catalogue should above all be simple to navigate, find the product you want and quickly aid you to make a decision. These catalogues do this effortlessly. A combination of a clean grid layout, quality product photography that show the clothing off to maximum effectiveness and crisp typography make locating products easy.
To top it all off, two striking and contrasting covers were developed to give personality to the Surridge brand. The football cover uses a specially commissioned illustration which harks back to the classic shoot comics – a homage to Surridge’s history as a sports equipment brand. The rugby catalogue’s alternative use of photography and ‘Best Game Ever’ statement aims to position the brand with positive attitude.

• Brochure Design • Brochure Printing Service
Recent high profile incidents has highlighted the mental health issues that can affect footballers and management in the game today. To help counter these the Professional Footballers’ Assoociation (The PFA) asked Northstar Design to create a guidebook that would address many of the mental health issues encountered by players today in a practical yet engaging educational booklet.
Northstar teamed up with renowned illustrator Paul Trevillion (of ‘Roy of the Rovers’ fame) to create a 36 page A4 guidebook for the PFA and its players. The guidebook features Paul’s trademark style in a series of illustrations showing the pitfalls, issues and solutions facing players in the modern game. The illustrations are combined in an attractive and easy to use information booklet which aims to engage the reader. With quotes from many players past and present such as Paul Gascoigne, Neil Lenon and Stan Collymore, the handbook provides a practical and powerful resource.
The guidebook has also featured in the national press with the article appearing in the Daily Mail.
Re-branding of a family manufacturing business of outdoor building
This is a fine example of a branding exercise for a small local company with big aspirations. Heritage Garden Buildings is typical of many businesses. They have a great product and service, but realise that a growing business needs to project the right image. Our design is a neat example of a sympathetic typographic solution. With a little thought and creative execution a distinctive logo was developed that portrayed the right image of class and quality.
The branding is carried onto their website which features a classic clean layout with simple imagery that ties in well with their logo.
