Students design property logo

Creative students from Lady Manners School were recently invited to design a logo for a new building in town.

Litton Property Group approached Rachel Gaunt, head of art, at Lady Manners School, Bakewell, to design a logo for the company’s new Kingfisher Building on the Riverside Business Park in town.

A detailed design brief was prepared and submitted to Year 10 art students, who were given 4 weeks to work on their concepts.

On receipt of the entries the judging panel — Mark Twelves (Litton’s MD), Helen Yates (Litton’s property manager), Jim Harrison (Thornbridge Brewery’s MD), Matt Kay (Born2Move’s MD) and Simon Turton (MD of Opera Public Relations) — met to review the students’ designs. Matt Kay’s business is taking space in Kingfisher Building and Thornbridge Brewery, due to expansion, will also be one of the building’s occupiers.

Mark Twelves said: “We were all extremely impressed by the quality of the designs and the effort that had been put into them, and it was not an easy decision to choose the winner.

The winning logo has now been incorporated into signage that will identify the building and the design will be used by Litton for additional marketing and promotional purposes.

Charlotte Wood won an iPad Mini and case and the runners-up, Finlay Goodwin and Euan Greatorex, each received an iPod Shuffle.
