Canadian Partnership Against Cancer
INSPIRING VISUAL DESIGN FOR PRINT: A STORY OF COMPLEXITY TOLD SIMPLY
Clever design encourages readership and helps key stakeholders understand the progress made towards delivering Canada’s cancer control strategy.
The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer has a crucial mission: to reduce the impact cancer has on
Canadians’ lives. The Partnership is funded by the federal government and is comprised of thousands of cancer experts, charities, governments, agencies and patient groups, all working independently, yet collaboratively, in real time. The document had to capture the complexity of the Partnership’s work, yet tell a compelling story of achievement – all while abiding by Health Canada’s reporting requirements.
With an understanding of how the Partnership connects and shares information across its network, Akendi created the theme ‘Better Together’.
A colour-coded roadmap, representing connectivity, runs throughout the report highlighting the Partnership’s progress against ambitious objectives in furthering Canada’s cancer control strategy.
The final product is a visually-engaging annual report that is easy to understand and encourages further reading. The design reflects the importance of connection between the thousands of stakeholder organizations which are all working toward the same important goal. The report’s structure and content was recognized and praised by the Prime Minister’s Office.
