|This work has been a journey of discovery: Hands-on learning about and understanding us, and helping us to understand ourselves better. Paul works by getting under the skin of the organisation with the result that his designs become an expression of its values and ethos. His approach is meticulous, follows a well-honed process, and produces high quality materials. Although challenging throughout, the end result is excellent.

|When we were first approached by the Children’s Family Trust’s Chairman of the Trustees, the project under discussion was a new web site.
As the discussions developed it became clear that the web site could become a significant component of the Trust’s expansion plans: as a promotional tool; a recruitment engine; an information repository for carers across the regions that the Trust operates in; all while being the ideal place to re-establish and reiterate the Trust’s core values and professional credentials.
Consequently we looked at the range of materials that the work might sensibly embrace to ensure that the new web site didn’t emerge amongst less than comparable information and promotional collateral.
While planning for the new web site began the first item on the design agenda was the identity, which we refreshed and created new artwork for. New stationery and the first of a myriad of forms followed.
In all we designed around 30 forms, and developed these in Microsoft Word. Once the head office and regional variations are accounted for around 130 forms of various lengths were delivered. Many of these are downloadable from secure pages on the web site.
The web site’s comprehensive content included: the Trustís history; staff and foster carer recruitment; information about vacancies for local authorities; finances and fund raising; the role of the Trustees; as well as contact and location information.
The site was developed in such a way that maintenance and updates can be undertaken by the Trustís staff.
