Link Community Development International
‘Noble Ox shows an intrinsic understanding and sensitivity of the value and importance of our work and the audience for which it is created.’
The team at Link were looking for more than just a brochure design. Education is the building block to peace and prosperity. This belief lies at the heart of Link’s ethos and we wholeheartedly agree. So when Noble Ox had the opportunity to work with this trail-blazing international development NGO, we were delighted to help.
Noble Ox was recommended by Dr Nick Hepworth at Water Witness International. We have worked with WWI over the years and we were very proud to be recommended by them.
Link Community Development International is an Edinburgh-based charity whose team envisage a world where every child in sub-Saharan Africa has access to a quality basic education. Over the last 25 years, they have helped nearly 2 million students in over 3,000 schools in Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Uganda and Rwanda access a better quality education.
The team works directly with government staff, district education officers, communities and schools by providing support and training for more effective teaching, improved school management and increased community engagement.
The Noble Ox Brief
Inspired by the success of a Noble Ox brochure job for Water Witness International, Link was looking for an on and offline publication to effectively communicate its ethos and showcase the work they do.
Working with our valued design partners at Transform Creative, we devised an approach which would not just suit budget and timescales BUT would deliver above and beyond both!
We used our client’s existing photography and created eye-catching infographics to illustrate their approach and the amazing results they achieve by transforming lives through learning.
It was a joy working with the Link team. In true Noble Ox fashion, we helped guide the process and decision-making needed to make sure we created an engaging brochure which worked hard for them.
Mission was accomplished! So much so, the first job was quickly followed by another. This time it was a brochure to showcase the results from a Girls’ Education Project in Ethiopia.
In addition to the two main brochures, we also helped with basic report template designs etc. It’s great to know that the work we’ve done is not just helping Link communicate with its audiences in the developed world; we’re helping in the classroom too!
Client Feedback from Link
We were delighted with the work we did, but more importantly so was our client,
‘Noble Ox and Transform provided excellent, responsive and reliable project management, client liaison and creative delivery required to produce two high quality and impactful brochures demonstrating the work of Link Community Development International. Their work has been delivered on time and within budget. We are an international development NGO and Noble Ox has shown an intrinsic understanding and sensitivity of the value and importance of our work and the audience for which it is created.’
