University of Denver’s Frederick S. Pardee Center
Eighty2degrees was asked to design the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures annual review for the third year. The report showcases the Pardee Center’s research projects on the interaction of human, social, and physical systems to improve sustainable human development around the world. This year, the goal was to make clear what those projects were as well as what topics they involve and what the final results were.
The completely new University of Denver branding to work with made the 2021–2022 review stand out from the previous two. New typography and an expanded, refreshed color palette were the main elements we looked to incorporate into the review. A horizontal format for the piece was introduced to distinguish it from previous reviews. Additionally, we partnered with illustrator Chris Gash to create a unique, conceptual cover illustration weaving elements of it throughout the piece. In the interior of the review, the content was organized into four distinct sections and we added photography, iconography, and data visualizations to share the Center’s successes for the year.
