New Schools Network

Rebranding free schools

The New Schools Network was set up in 2009. They are a small charity that works to transform the standard of education in England by delivering more high-quality free schools and campaigning to win public and political support for free schools.

I have worked with New Schools Network for more years than I remember! They’ve been through many versions of how they wish to brand themselves, and I have been on the journey every step of the way – through advertising, social media posts, email templates, brand identities, brochures, banner stands, and much more.

In January 2024, NSN released their Legacy Report detailing the successes of the charity since it’s inception in 2009. It also explained the future for the charity – delivering the NSN Innovation Fund moving forward under a newly designed logo.

“I have worked with Robin for many years now at New Schools Network. His ability to grasp a brief and produce exactly what we were hoping for is truly remarkable – especially when more often than not, we’re not 100% sure what we actually want or need. He totally understands the NSN brand and our goals as an organisation; this allows him to make suggestions or offer ideas we would never have had the expertise to come up with ourselves. He regularly goes above and beyond to make sure our needs are met.Robin is a fantastic designer and colleague. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, offers excellent value for money and is an asset to our organisation. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
