Wadham College – Letters from Dorothy

Visual Philosophy began working with Wadham College, Oxford, in 2008. We were asked to create the branding for a major fundraising campaign for the College as it approached its 400th anniversary in 2010. Prior to the campaign development, we undertook a complete audit and overhaul of all the College’s communications to bring some visual cohesion.

The 400th Anniversary Campaign work included brand identity and a host of printed materials including a lavish commemorative hardback, event programmes and direct mail pieces. This little book, featuring the letters of the College’s founder, Dorothy Wadham as she set up the College 400 years earlier, was given out at gala dinners, and at a special quadricentenary concert at the Sheldoninan.
