Branding for Education

Sector-leading, award-winning education brands

IE Brand is the award-winning agency behind the "Best Visual Identity for Education" – Transform Awards Europe 2017. We've delivered numerous branding projects for universities, colleges, schools and educational charities.

We conduct and scrutinise brand research, engage with pupils and students, alumni, teachers and other stakeholders. We work with internal marketing and communications teams to develop brand messaging, personality and tone of voice (often helping with organisational behaviour change along the way). This is followed by logo development, visual identity design, brand guidelines, templates and campaign assets.

Read about some of our award-winning projects for the likes of pfegUniversity of Reading, Career Ready and Cranfield University.
