Jacqueline Du Pré Music Building

A modern identity for one of Oxford's most exciting music venues

Based at St Hilda's College, the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building is home to a range of events including a professional concert series, theatrical productions, community events, practice rooms and a recording studio. Beginning to look tired, their previous website wasn’t responsive and an update was well overdue. We designed a new website to promote their range of activities along with a new logo and brand identity to match. The bespoke JDP lettering used in the logo has been created to reflect their musical performances and is designed to work across a range of applications from the new website to posters and other marketing materials.

The result is an enthralling identity that will hopefully become synonymous with music lovers in Oxford and beyond.

“Franks and Franks have designed a stunning new website for the JdP Music Building. Their creative insight into the building's role as an integral part of St Hilda's College, Oxford University and the city's vibrant musical life has resulted in supremely elegant branding and a striking modern website that are at once focussed, enticing and meaningful. We are delighted with the feel, usability and flexibility of the design and have been very impressed with the team's professionalism throughout.”
