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.

Rossendale Borough Council
Complete re-branding of the main Council identity. Implementation across all communication material, signage and livery.
Rossendale Council required a complete re-branding to reflect the big change in management and direction that was being undertaken. A positive and modern corporate identity was required to enforce the change.
The solution is a move away from the usual coat of arms that adorn many Councils’ brands. Instead, a modern and lively logo ‘Rossendale Alive’ was developed to illustrate this positive attitude.
To maintain consistency across its implementation, a brand manual was designed outlining colours, fonts, layout styles, rules and restrictions. Three years on the identity is flourishing and the strong foundations means the identity remains as consistent now as it did when it was launched.
