Project Details

What We Need
  • Designs for a pre-determined number of marketing or communications materials (examples: one-pager/fact sheets, case studies, fundraising collateral, event invitations, annual reports, and pamphlets)
  • Templates with accurate, print-ready specifications
  • Note: This project does not include printing
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a finalized copy of the report, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have examples of previous report designs, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

An appealing report design will ensure our work appears polished and professional. The design really plays a big role in enticing our audience to read our work and can help them distill important information more easily. Your help is critical to getting our message across and getting communities to turn our research into action.
