New brand and website for education charity SkillForce

Friday, April 1st, 2011

As an education charity, SkillForce’s vision is that every young person, whatever their background or ability, is given the chance to fulfil their true potential and become a valued member of their community. Combining the skills and experience of former members of the Armed Forces and other uniformed services with an innovative and successful approach to unlocking potential, SkillForce are able to facilitate positive and permanent change in the lives of some of the country’s most disadvantaged young people. In a recent announcement, SkillForce launched ‘The Prince’s Award’ from their Royal Patron, HRH Prince William of Wales.


During the course of the last six months, Katapult have been working closely with education charity SkillForce.  Following appointment to develop the SkillForce brand, Katapult worked closely with the client team to develop a brand framework outlining the charity’s vision, impact, positioning, values and propositions to young people, parents, schools and funders. Katapult also assisted with product development, developing the ‘3C’ construct that forms the basis of the SkillForce curriculum: Community, Character & Contribution. Following creative development, the strategy was executed across a range of communications materials which included the design and build of the SkillForce website.

Katapult have also worked on the development of  an online game and in-classroom learning tool used by SkillForce team leaders ‘Virtual Walk to the Pole’ which runs alongside Walking with the Wounded, the trek to the North Pole by four wounded soldiers who set off on 31st March 2011.


Book your stay in a Finesse hotel

Friday, February 19th, 2010


Having recently completed a brand development project for the Finesse Collection, it’s great to see the new website live and taking bookings.

The Finesse Collection is a group of hotels within the East Midlands: Lace Market Hotel in Nottingham, Cathedral Quarter Hotel in Derby, Donington Manor Hotel in Castle Donington and The Lion Hotel in Belper. Our brief was to create better internal and external understanding of the group brand whilst retaining the personality and profile of the hotel sub-brands – the resultant brand framework had to communicate that each Finesse Collection hotel is individual and a different offering from the next as well as the shared group experience through the level of service and high standards.
