A business founded in friendship and born of a shared passion for design.
Who we are.
Hello. We are Victoria and Amy and we are the co-founders of Brands 4 Schools. We met at university whilst studying for our degrees in graphic design and quickly formed a friendship based on shared values and a nerdy obsession for all things graphic design. Whilst we not ones to blow our own trumpets, it’s worth knowing when it comes to visual communication, we really do know our stuff.
We both hold first class honours degrees in graphic design and we offer bags of design and communications experience from working within the education sector and beyond. We understand the complexities of effectively communicating and engaging with diverse audiences and are experienced in supporting a school’s performance against the Ofsted framework. You might be surprised at the diversity of the support we can offer. To find out more take a look at our capabilities page or alternatively get in touch for a chat.

To be the most passionately referred specialist creative agency, within the education community.
You can’t teach passion and we think being passionate about what we do is a privilege. When we say we are passionate, for us it means providing the very best for our clients through meaningful design. We love that our design solutions are often required to engage young minds and we feel particularly honoured that working within the education community affords us the opportunity, no matter how small, to positively influence and engage with young people.
With passion, comes a brave spirit. We know that being brave isn’t always the easy or comfortable choice, but that discomfort often leads to learning and personal growth. So, whether it’s embracing change, challenging the status quo with new ideas, being accountable when things go wrong, or simply doing the right thing, being brave will always be an integral part of who we are.
When we say we’re real, what do we mean? I guess we could spin you a line about being honest (I mean is there even an alternative?) or tell you how we’re going to save the planet, but instead we’ll just say that we’re real. We’re straightforward, we’re approachable (lord knows we love a chat!), we’re fair and we care that our clients trust us and enjoy doing business with us.
