There have been many milestones celebrated at the pen, but none more special than Jack’s 50th birthday yesterday. Here’s to the next 50!
Keeping up-to-date with new developments in our industry has always been something that we’ve been keen to do. However, when it’s a new skill sometimes attending a training course can be the fastest and most efficient way of up-skilling. So we sent Jack on a Certitec Digital Publishing Suite, 3 day Masterclass in London to further his knowledge and improve our offering in the process.
Here’s the basic info of the course, taken from the Certitec Website:
DPS Masterclass – 3 day
In this highly detailed Adobe Authorised DPS training course which includes hands-on project building on the afternoon of the last day, you will learn how to use the Adobe® Digital Publishing Suite to build Single Edition and Multi-folio magazine apps to deliver innovative reading experiences and dynamic content on leading tablet devices such as iPad, Android and Kindle Fire. This course is delivered by an Adobe InDesign and Digital Publishing Suite Certified Instructor.
Cardiff University’s Business School have, for a fifth year running, engaged Black Sheep to produce their annual prospectuses for Undergraduates and Postgraduates interested in studying at the University in 2012.

We believe that this continued relationship is testament to our understanding of their specific needs and desire to recruit students of the highest standard, in order to maintain and build on their ranking of 4th in the UK for the quality of its research quality. With 70% of the School’s research ranked as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
The School is ranked 2nd in the UK in terms of the proportion of its research which is ‘world-leading’ (the highest possible category), placing it second only to London Business School.
The School uses research-led teaching across its full portfolio of programmes, giving students the cutting-edge knowledge needed to forge a successful career.

Our Brief was to design the Cardiff Employee Survey, a report that presents the findings from a research project conducted by Cardiff Business School and Cardiff Business Partnership, examining employees’ perceptions of Cardiff as a place to work and asked them what they wanted from the city in the future. Cardiff Business School asked Black Sheep to design a report that communicates the needs of those individuals surveyed, quickly, clearly & effectively to business leaders.
Deciphering the information contained in graphs and charts can be difficult as well as navigating through it. We created a document that illustrates its findings as well as traditionally telling the story.
Where the reader can clearly identify the key messages without necessarily having to read the whole report.
Adopting a less formal, graphic approach to the report, we used large magazine style pull-outs for key facts, with iconic symbols representing the issues identified. Our main aim was to clearly place the emphasis on engaging the target audience, who are time poor.
Since the reports launch, it has been widely reported through TV, Radio and online media encouraging debate on it’s findings.
‘It’s great – we’re really pleased and it’s going to a lot of large companies and organisations in Cardiff, so I hope it brings you some work too! – Everyone who has seen it has been really impressed!’ Laura Davies of the Business School.
