We have worked with City of York Council for many years now, but we were delighted to find out that Shine has won the ‘eXtra Factor Award for Customer Engagement’.

The eXtra Factor awards are held every year to identify and reward people or groups of people who are over and above what is expected.

We took over the design and production of Shine (previously Schools Out) at a time when it was enjoying attendance levels in the region of 23,000.

By focussing on the needs of the intended audience, we have raised attendance to 74,000+ and with no change to the budget.

The publication and all who work on it were recognised by the eXtra Award for how well Shine engages with it’s audience.

Needless to say we are very proud to have played our part and would like to say congratulations to everyone involved.
