University of South Wales

As everyone knows, going to university is about more than what you learn in the lecture halls. It’s often a first step into a brave new world.

So when the University of South Wales asked us to help write their accommodation brochure, they didn’t want a dry selection of listings information. They wanted to give potential students something that would help prepare for a big life change. Something worth keeping.

We teamed up with our good friends at True North to design and write this beautiful book, with easy-to-find information at one end, and informative, editorial style articles at the other.

It needed to be relevant to both students and their parents.It had to be easy to use and easy to read. And it had to introduce the city as much as the accommodation. After all, as USW like to say, where you live is just as important as what you learn.

How did better words make better work?

With university selection season well under way, this book is helping students follow big dreams and make big decisions. We’re proud to have helped turn what could be a transactional document into a warmer, more welcoming experience.
