Design Rationale

The cover needed to reflect community work in it’s diverse forms without targeting one particular area. This was a tough brief and I didn’t want to go down the path of the collage. The quirky and diverse image of the pebbles immediately resounded and in combination with the colour palette and casual font, had an uplifting, positive note. Subtle aspects from the cover design were carried through to balance the professional feel of the internal design with an engaging, friendly tone .
