Humanity In Action Report

October 2014

Client: Humanity in Action
Project: Research Report

This report was designed and edited for the NY-based Humanity In Action to mark the human rights organisation’s fifteenth year. The 31-page report details the impact of Humanity In Action’s programs on participants, and includes survey and interview data regarding their experiences.

The main goal of this project was to convey survey and data research in an engaging and accessible way for the general public. I designed the layout and text formatting with the audience in mind, and opted for a clean and uncluttered look. With the large amount of text, this meant ensuring a good balance of text and space on each page.

I also worked with the report’s author to find more interesting ways of presenting data, and transformed some bar charts into pie charts. Choosing the right colours and variations here was important to not distract too much from the text, and to create visually coherent charts. The infographic on this page combines two data sets into one, while providing greater context for how the data can be understood:
