School Student Handbook Design

We create beautiful brands and marketing material affordable to Schools, FE and Colleges in and around the Northwest. These include a number of services from a simple leaflet, poster, popup stands to prospectus and student handbook design. At NW Design we are extremely proud of the highly creative and distinctive brochures that we produce for our clients. Not only will your school benefit from a professionally designed prospectus but we can also create branded student handbook like the 24 page handbook we recently designed for the Liverpool School of English. This new 24 page student handbook goes hand in hand with the schools prospectus keeping the brand inline between the two pieces of marketing literature. The student handbook consists of the schools curriculum, facilities, student welfare and code of conduct just to name a few. Your schools brand is important and to ensure our design for education remains consistent we can also provide you and your school a full set of brand guidelines outlining simple rules that will help to keep your brand consistent. ...

Walk of Memories Charity Leaflet

We have been working with Wigan and Leigh Hospice for a number of years now and they on some absolutely fantastic events to help raise the much needed funds to keep the hospice running. It was great to visit the local Hindley Branch of Royal Bank of Scotland and see our leaflets proudly displayed on their counter. It's great to see all the businesses of Hindley and surrounding areas by helping to support such a great cause. This year the Hospice have come up with something somewhat different to the other high adrenaline events which they run, "The Walk of Memories". Taken from Wigan and Leigh Hospice website the Walk of Memories will consist of the following. "Our Walk of Memories sponsored walk through Pennington Flash Country Park on Sunday, May 3rd. You'll set off at 12noon for a walk through the beautiful grounds and finish by placing a message or a photograph on our Memories Tree in remembrance of a loved one if you wish. Our walk is open to everyone with a choice of a 5K or 10K route so that all the family can get involved. After the walk you'll be able to enjoy a range of refreshments, fairground rides, music and more! All the messages left on our Memory Tree will be collected at the end of the event and will be displayed at the Hospice Garden Party in August. It costs just £10 per adult or £5 per child to take part. A family ticket for two adults and two children is available priced at £25. A minimum sponsorship of £25 per person will apply." ...

Google announce that Mobile-Friendly sites will contribute to their SERP ranking algorithm

Well it's inevitable that the search engine giant Google would finally be using mobile-friendly factors in their search engine results page (SERP) ranking algorithm. Matt Cutts announced a number of years ago that Google would eventually be giving "bonus points" to sites that offered a mobile version in the bid to increase overall user experience. This is just one of the many routes Google has gone down to make the web a better place and more user friendly. ...

How to setup IMAP iPhone email for cPanel accounts

How do I set my cPanel emails up on my Iphone or Ipad, We get asked this quite often by clients so we thought we'd write a useful article to help you guys get set up. Setting up your iPad or iPhone email with a cPanel based hosting account is a manual process and can be daunting for the non tech savvy, but fortunately it’s fairly easy – although it does require a degree of concentration and patience. Apple have improved the ability to setup Iphone mail with many popular third party services like Google, MS Outlook, Yahoo and AOL to name a few. Sadly they can't cater for every email service that's available, so here's the NW Design guide to setting up your apple device with a typical IMAP cPanel hosting server. If the process below doesn't work then you've almost certainly made a mistake somewhere, or there's a connectivity issue between your phone and cPanel. Just one typo in this section will result in failure so read carefully and good luck! ...

Why Design Quality Matters

Why Design Quality Matters

Firstly- We all had to start somewhere; not everyone has an infinite amount of money in the bank and most of the time it’s where do we draw the line between budget and premium quality. Most people we meet have had those cheap business cards that look and feel like they've been printed on the back of a cereal packet, in simple terms they’re downright horrid. What’s worse is when they say printed for free on the back. That to me is a right turn off, and straight away it doesn't say much about one’s business, first impressions do matter. ...
