Giving the board a helping hand


Client: Thrive Homes

Project: Board members’ handbook

We created a practical handbook for members of Thrive Homes’ Board, which contained all the information they needed in a durable format, with scope for updates and personal record-keeping.
Thrive Homes, a housing association which owns and manages 3,700 rented and 440 leasehold properties in Hertfordshire, asked us to produce a durable handbook for members of its management Board.
We created a practical ring binder design which held all the information they needed, and would allow Board members to insert additional or updated information, plus agendas, minutes and their own notes and documents, such as training and personal expenses records.
The handbook blended elements of the Thrive Homes brand, but also had elements which were unique to such a one-off product, with scope for members to tailor it to their own personal requirements.


The resulting folder combines a fresh, professional look with robust practicality and durability, so Board members have a useful file to refer to and to keep all their paperwork in one place. This was particularly welcomed by incoming members new to their role.
