IntoUniversity Education Plaque for South Leeds

16 November 2015

IntoUniversity-South-Leeds-plaque-1The University of Leeds working with the national organisation IntoUniversity, has established a new centre in South Leeds. This centre works with primary and secondary school age children to raise both their educational attainment and aspirations. This is the second centre of this kind and we have designed sponsor recognition plaques for both.

INTO UNIVERSITY EDUCATION CENTRE, LEEDS, WEST YORKSHIRE SPONSORS RECOGNITION DISPLAY

17 December 2014

The University of Leeds working with the national organisation, IntoUniversity, has established a new centre in East Leeds. This centre works with primary and secondary school age children to raise both their educational attainment and aspirations. The centre, in a large first floor of St Aidan’s Church in Harehills, Leeds, hosts homework clubs, study weeks and mentoring.

The University and a number of private donors raised funding for this very worthwhile project to be established. Our brief was to recognise their contribution by naming them prominently in an eye-catching display, appropriate to the venue and the audience.

We designed brightly coloured owls to symbolise not only wisdom, but in recognition of the well-known emblem for Leeds! The flying owls swooping down, bringing in the names of private donors, also adds a magical, school-age note with its hint to the stories of Harry Potter!

The Perspex sign was fitted in place, floating over the old brickwork with spacers. We are really pleased with the end result!
