“We have worked with dsquared on two occasions and have been more than pleased with the end products. The prospectuses they designed for our Academy and Sixth Form hit the right mark and have helped create a professional image in line with our new Academy status. Staff, students , parents and members of the public have all commented on the quality of the prospectus and we feel that we it portrays the right message to potential students and their parents. Dsquared also came up with some branding, which will now be used throughout the school literature. It was produced from an initial brief and set the tone for the rest of the design.� Allison Baverstock, Director of resources, Thomas Clarkson Academy
