Nestled among Cotswold-inspired architecture on 860 acres in the Farmington Valley of Connecticut, Avon Old Farms School is a single-sex boarding school for boys. It was founded in 1927 by Theodate Pope Riddle, one of America’s first, successful, female architects. Her progressive ideas about curriculum, fostering initiative, willpower and individual thinking created a forward-thinking school for boys where decades of students have found unwavering support and fraternal bonds that last a lifetime. Today, the School, with its modernized historic buildings, new facilities, exceptional arts offerings, broad athletic program, and well-developed extracurricular activities, provides a unique setting where strong traditions remain a hallmark of the School's identity.
Our work for Avon Old Farms School began a decade ago with the design of the Fall 2010 issue of The Avonian magazine. Produced three times a year with design partner, Ruth Sadinsky, the magazine is an important vehicle to communicate the accomplishments and activities of the faculty, students and alumni to keep their audiences engaged with the School.
