Staffordshire-based business consultancy Strategi Solutions, is celebrating the success of a recent collaboration with students from the City Learning Trust (CLT), supporting the creation of an impactful brand for an upcoming fundraising event, ‘Race to Raise’.

Harnessing the power of creativity, budding-designers from the CLT’s four schools were immersed in a unique challenge as part of Enterprise Week (coinciding with National Apprenticeship Week) – to craft a compelling name and logo for the upcoming CLT charitable event in aid of the local hospice, Dougie Mac.

Students were given the opportunity to design their logo in school either by hand or digitally. Their imaginative designs were then pitted against each other in a lively competition, culminating in an exciting opportunity for the victorious participants to collaborate closely with Strategi Solutions’ in-house design experts. The winning students, one selected from each of the schools within the trust, were welcomed into the innovative Strategi Hub workspace, where they collaborated with the design team to breathe life into their creations, combining them into a singular logo.

Ant Goddard, Studio Manager at Strategi Solutions expressed: “Nurturing young talent and fostering creativity in the next generation of designers is incredibly important. Through our partnership with City Learning Trust, we were able to share our passion for design and impart our knowledge, and it was rewarding to see the impressive array of artwork produced by the students. The project presented a great opportunity to inspire and educate, whilst also aiding the support of a hugely important local cause.”
