Gateways is an educational programme for disadvantaged young people, where they can get both academic and vocational training in a supportive environment tailored to their needs. I was tasked with creating their annual report and prospectus.
They wanted the document to be engaging to a young audience, focusing on the success of their students rather than the often difficult circumstances that may have resulted in them joining the programme. My solution was to use typographic layouts with inspirational quotes from current students to demonstrate the benefits of the programme. The letter ‘a’ was transformed into an arrow to reflect the success of the students.
