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.
