Edinburgh University choose Little Book for sports club directory
It’s a busy time for Universities as they court potential new students for the coming academic year. Edinburgh University is holding a series of undergraduate Open Days for students to find out about life in Edinburgh. It’s also an opportunity to explore the campus, learn more about the range of degrees available and ask questions about admissions, accommodation and job prospects.
Edinburgh University Sports Union has so much to offer
Edinburgh University Sports Union (EUSU) plays an important part of student life at Edinburgh. It offers students a wide range of sporting activities that caters for everyone from beginners to international athletes. In fact EUSU is the number one sporting institution in Scotland and consistently ranks in the top 6 in the UK.
EUSU was looking for a convenient and compact way to showcase the 64 sports clubs currently on offer at Edinburgh. The clubs range from Motor Sports, Korball and Hot Air Ballooning to the more traditional sports of Cycling, Cricket and of course Football.
Little Book comes to the rescue
Members from the sports union had picked up a Triathlon Scotland Little Book and were impressed by such a large amount of information in such a compact format. They approached us in January to explore the idea of their own pocket-sized Little Book. Our standard 42 panel booklet proved too small, so we suggested an extended 70 panel version. This allowed one club per panel with 5 remaining for additional information on playing field venues and Performance Sport programmes. We suggested a free-of-charge mock-up based on the Unions artwork which proved to be just what they were looking for.
With two weeks in hand we set to work producing 8,000 Edinburgh University Sports Union Little Books. They were despatched and arrived in plenty of time for their first Open Day on June 15th.
What better way to get so much information into such a small space and still be funky enough for students!
