City Year L.A. needed a comprehensive document that their influential board members could refer to throughout the service year. This book provides information about the organization’s national scope, and then hones in on City Year L.A.’s local service, impact, and events.
The book began as a discombobulated compilation of many documents. After getting the bones of the content together, however, we were able to better organize the information (moving from a broad national scope to the local landsape) and remove repetitive content.
I created consistent typographic rules and used an underlying grid to help pull the 48-page book together into a cohesive document. After multiple rounds of drafts and a print run, it was later provided as a starting template for other sites to create similar pieces.
