The Ishimodo Agency chose a shift in design direction from the previous World Vision Annual Health and Nutrition review. The brief for the 2016 report was to create an editorial layout like the Harvard Business Review. Franklin began by creating a design template with a six and seven-column grid that allowed for variations in section length and content supplied by the client. He added a well-defined section intro that starts with the author's headshot, name, and email address to encourage the reader to respond to each article directly. Following Ishimodo's design direction, Stephen paired back the full bleed images and bold infographics, bringing them in line with the copy to strengthen the editorial format. The result was a layout that was informative and engaging, presenting World Vision as the authority on Child Health and Nutrition.
