The work of Folkestone-based DRIVE Marketing has been shortlisted for the Times Educational Supplement (TES) Independent School Awards 2018.
Based in Folkestone’s Creative Quarter, the agency has been working with Dover College, an independent day and boarding school, for the past year and its rebrand and innovative new marketing and advertising campaign has been shortlisted for the Marketing Campaign of the Year Award.
- The ‘Think Differently’ campaign has generated enormous interest in the school; pupil numbers have increased, as has the school’s visibility and profile on a local, national and international level.
Clare Grove is one of DRIVE’s Directors.
“The whole team is thrilled with this achievement, which is the result of a great collaboration between DRIVE’s creative and account team and everyone at Dover College. Our client base has always had a London focus, but in the past two years, we have seen a growing number of local companies seeking our creative and strategic marketing skills, whether to support business owners directly or to work alongside in-house teams. We’re looking forward to the award ceremony in February but, whatever the result, to have been shortlisted for such a prestigious award is a tremendous accolade.”
Gareth Doodes, the Headmaster of Dover College, is delighted with the award and grateful to DRIVE for its work.
“By using an agency outside of the College, we have been able to tap into a far greater level of expertise. However, we never expected our chosen company to be quite so rigorous, and quite so dedicated, as the team at DRIVE. From the outset, the team made it their mission to know the school, its operation, and its staff, fully comprehending the DNA of our organisation and therefore selling it with prose rather than poetry. The fact that we have been shortlisted for this prestigious award is a testament to DRIVE’s innovative and fresh approach to marketing Dover College.”
DRIVE Marketing works with clients in Kent, London, Surrey and the USA, helping them plan and implement campaigns of the highest standard. To arrange an initial consultation or for an informal discussion (ideally over coffee or a glass of wine), please get in touch.
Congratulations Dover College!
