When design makes a difference.

When design makes a difference.


The Women & Health Initiative (W&HI) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health focuses on women’s health needs and the critical roles women have in healthcare systems across the world.

We worked with the Women & Health Initiative/Maternal Health Task Force from 2013 until their grant expired in 2019. Over our six years together, we created many pieces for various events and initiatives – starting with a print solution to present globally-gathered data in a compelling way. The results included eight case study booklets – cohesive in design, categorized by color – as well as corresponding one-pagers.

With the great response from the booklets, we continued to tackle more W&HI/MHTF projects, such as:

  • Refresh branding for both W&HI and Maternal Health Task Force, including refreshing logos for consistency with the Harvard brand, creating an internal brand style guide, design and produce templates for all email marketing and in-person presentations
  • Redesign, produce and organize printing and mailhouse services for a multi-part doctor survey campaign
  • Graphics and charts published in The Lancet
  • Event and conference materials, including Global Maternal Health Symposium, International Women’s Day, Women Delivery Conference, and Global Maternal & Newborn Health Conference
  • Design and produce a 70-page training manual for Obstetric Emergency Drills with accompanying presentation, for global distribution
