Yesterday, Phonic Farm met for the last time before the Christmas Fair at St Nicholas Market on Saturday.
A lot has happened over the last 2 weeks. Since the eureka moment, the team have worked tirelessly to each come up with a recipe suitable for the themed cookbook.
With all 10 recipes ready, Hannah had the difficult task of putting them all together to create one coherent and well-designed cookbook. With a little help from me, as their Business Advisor, and a quick tutorial of InDesign, Hannah managed to produce a cookbook which the team were delighted with.
When the cookbook was presented to the team, they did some market research within the school to test front cover options, one which Hannah designed and one which Thomas, the Digital Director designed. Both were received well however the front cover Hannah designed came out on top. It was described as ‘professional’ and ‘well designed’ which gave a big boost to the team’s spirits!
Whilst all of this was going on, James and Joe as Operations were researching and contracting printers to see who could produce the cookbook in our limited timescale. After several phone calls, queries and knockbacks they found Clifton Print Services who provided a very competitive quote and could turn all the books around in the week.
At the same time, Thomas the team’s Digital Director, was tasked with designing a website and starting up their social media. He has done a fantastic job, so I would highly recommend for those interesting in finding out more about the team and the products they are producing to visit their website https://phonicfarm.weebly.com/ or follow them on Twitter using the handle @PhonicFarm.
Now that all the different parts of the puzzle are in place, it is down to the team to package the books and cookie cutters together to create a bundle ready for the weekend. It will be a final push to the finish line, but I know they will make it and all their hard work will pay off!
If you are in town over the weekend, make sure to visit Phonic Farm’s stand and purchase your very own Christmas Cookbook for the fabulous price of £3.50 including 2 festive cookie cutters. It is the perfect stocking filler for children of all ages. A few examples of the pages can be seen below!
We wish them all the best of luck and look forward to hearing all about it on Monday.
