The design of the logos are the shared intellectual property of the Wilson Design Group and the Sir Donald Bailey Academy. Their download and use are strictly restricted to those with permission from the Academy in agreement of their use.
The logo should never be implemented upon any graphical or digitally published material in any different format other than the three formats shown here. The elements of the motif and typography should not be interpreted differently to those shown here or moved in any other position in relation to each other in any other way than those demonstrated here.
This is primarily for guidance of the implementation of the logo upon the school uniform and significantly upon the school blazer.
Design 2 shows the crest centred above the typographical element and is designed as the primary use for the implementation of the logo on all printed and digitally published information.
esign 3 shows the crest to the left of the typography and is the second option for usage of the Sir Donald Bailey Academy where it is more convenient to implement it upon graphically or digitally published information, rather than the manner shown in Design 1.
If you are a supplier to the Sir Donald Bailey Academy requiring further assistance with regard to the implementation of their logo to ensure you have the correct artwork in the correct format then please contact the Wilson Design Group on the below link.
The modular bridge shown in the accompany images, designed by Sir Donald Bailey was used in the second world war, significantly towards the end of the war. As the allies advanced the bridges were used to cross rivers where old bridges had been blown up by the retreating enemy. The structure was ingenious, as it maximised efficiency in its ratio to strength and weight. It was strong enough to withstand all heavy armoured vehicles and yet light enough for each section to be lifted and rapidly placed into position by just three men.
The Sir Donald Bailey Academy site now stands upon the old training grounds of the ROYAL ENGINEERS responsible for training military personnel to assemble the bridge sections. The design of the system and the ability to fix the sections together very quickly was of paramount importance in the war effort.
A design session took part between staff, children and our design agency. Two significant Sir Donald Bailey Pupil designs (shown above) became the basis and inspiration for the new school logo. The two ideas where combined. One showing shapes both positive and negative reflecting those in the bridge section, and the second idea of using a crest to reflect the high ambitions of the school.
After careful consideration of colour combinations the final logo below was developed as shown below.
