Nottingham Forest in the Community is evolving and from today we will be using a new logo alongside a new name, Nottingham Forest Community Trust, to reflect our work in communities across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
For Graham Moran, our CEO, the vibrant redesign accurately combines our impact as a charity with the history of Nottingham Forest. He said: “The aim has been to create a clear and recognisable brand which reflects what we are all about as an organisation. Nottingham Forest Football Club is at the core of who we are and to the impact we achieve, the new branding and logo reflects this perfectly.”
The creative force behind the rebrand is locally based Purpose Media; with the new logo incorporating a shield as a protective symbol around the famous Forest tree which stands proudly at the heart of the modern design. The shield also represents a sign of strength for communities and reflects the positive impact the Trust has on young people, their families, schools, and community groups across the city and county.
Matt Wheatcroft, managing director of Purpose Media, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Nottingham Forest Community Trust on this exciting project and look forward to strengthening our partnership on the back of the new website.
“The organisation does such vital work in helping to improve the health and wellbeing of communities across the city and county, so as a company which started in Mansfield and has kept its local roots it’s important for us to be involved and to provide support wherever we can.
“Professional sports club websites, and football clubs in particular, are a real specialism of ours. We work with a number of clubs in the Football League to raise their profile, help them become more commercial and drive more traffic to their websites. It’s great to add another partner to our growing roster of clients in this niche sector.”
Graham added: “After recently celebrating 25 years of service to our community and with a new long term strategic plan in place we now look forward to making an even bigger contribution across the city and county.”
You will soon see the new logo appearing at The Forest Sports Zone and The Champions Centre education facility alongside new promotional materials for NCS, Education, Kicks and the Official Nottingham Forest Soccer Schools plus a new website planned for April/May time. It’s an exciting time for everyone connected to Nottingham Forest Community Trust as we build on the successes of the last 25 years.
