West Sound Academy
West Sound Academy is a college preparatory community that cultivates a high level of scholarship and artistic expression. Our mission is to graduate confident, intellectually curious and open-minded young adults who are prepared to contribute responsibly to their world with creativity, character, courage and compassion. Offered to grades 6-12 and located on the Kitsap Peninsula in Poulsbo, Washington, just outside Seattle; WSA is one of the few International Baccalaureate World Schools in our state and has a unique personality and curriculum. WSA needs new brochures to enhance our new logo and look and to reflect this global identity. We have a large international student body with students representing over 10 global communities.
We need brochures that communicate a high level of intellect and sophistication but are also still very casual and approachable- WARM and SAFE. The schools personality is highly academic but also VERY individualistic. Our students have eclectic, pioneering spirits. The brochure should appeal to a global community of parents who are seeking the very best education for their student. This audience cares deeply about education, but also about educating the "whole" person..not just intellectual growth. We built a curriculum around students who are socially minded, independent, risk-takers. The style should reflect a high level of artistry and elegance but also warmth and character. Mostly, we are just looking for something gorgeous which captures our special spirit...Please WOW us!!!
We will be VERY communicative about design process, provide lots of feedback and guidance and support the process in any way we can.
Design should be strongly anchored in use of photos and images.
Designer can select images they love from the large image catalog provided. Crop and manipulate as they see fit.
Winning design needs to be delivered to us in AI and Photoshop with all layers enabled and all text editable. All photos/ art should be minimum 300dpi. All artwork should be CMYK or Pantone Spot.
Text content is provided in attached Word Doc./ Accent words should be incorporated graphically into the design.
Logo, brand and photo files are too large to upload on 99Designs so you'll need to download here:
