The Fabian Society is Britain’s oldest political think tank. Founded in 1884, the Society is at the forefront of developing political ideas and public policy on the left.
I've worked with the Fabian Society's communications team since Autumn 2016 on a range of design projects, including creation of conference materials and editorial work on several publications.
My latest commissioned project was the Powerful People Powerful Places report, authored by Tara Paterson. The report explores the premise that our local environment is the foundation on which community life is built and how open spaces provide platforms for local people to come together and meet their neighbours, and how clean streets embed a pride in one’s place.
I was tasked with bringing Tara's fascinating findings to life, using one of the Society's magazine-style design templates, integrating imagery and words, alongside newly created illustrations and graphs to help represent case studies and key report findings.
The final report, which was published online in July 2017, can be read in full here.
