ABOUT US

The story of a yellow car, who we are, and where we want to go

THE STORY OF [YELLOW CAR]

As children, we played Yellow Car on long journeys. Sitting in the back seat, we would look out for a yellow car and excitedly declare ourselves the winner if we spotted one. And once you started, it was remarkable how many yellow cars there actually were.

 

In a world full of schools that all look roughly the same, we help schools stand out and be seen as truly different. We support school leaders and their teams to intentionally design the experience of their school.

And the next time you see a yellow car, we know you’ll think of us.
