Standout Features:

  • Bold, vivid colors
  • Children peeking behind large numbers
  • Crayon-drawn elements

Save the Children launched SCAN (Save the Children: Action Network) in 2014 to help execute advocacy work for children in need. Niedermeier Design helped the organization design an evaluation report to help reflect what SCAN is about.

The layout relies on a colorful approach full of bold, vivid colors and a playful, laid-back style to make the formal work more appealing and entertaining. Each page of the design features a child striking a carefree pose as they make room for lots of data evaluating the organization’s progress.

Each new section is represented by a number occupying the entire page, with children peeking behind them. This layout adds a lighthearted tone to the design, further supported by certain crayon-drawn elements that help portray the children’s part in the advocacy's achievements.

Standout Features:

  • Reliable color scheme
  • Creative growth depiction
  • Blue as an accent color

Studio Eksaat's designs for the medical humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières cement their place among our best non-profit print designs.

The designs include a visual that expands over the years with landmark years denoting all the significant events that marked progress in MSF’s work, a world map with a legend of their presence, and a report book emphasizing all their efforts in 2017.

The expansive visual representing the organization's growth is even more effective because of its color-coding design. With the standard combination of attention-grabbing red as a background and white typography, the reliable color scheme also features light blue as an accent color to help highlight crucial dates or details.

Standout Features:

  • Clean, white background
  • Prominent gallery
  • Orange color used for emphasis

Michelle Silver Design's rebranding project for the Surface Design Association births a stunning, refreshed magazine layout for the organization. The agency's magazine redesign featuring vivid, colorful, free-style posters is an excellent addition to this list of best non-profit print designs.

Some posters feature a bundle of colorful crafting materials. In contrast, others feature complementary cool colors in liquid, abstract shapes as backgrounds for a list of the grants presented in a solid orange typography.

Meanwhile, the magazine resembles a gallery exhibition thanks to the white background that lets the prominent gallery accommodate and support the content.

Some elements, like the new sections, artist names, and page numbers, are emphasized using an orange hue to indicate certain typefaces.

Standout Features:

  • Detailed geographic view
  • Color-coded data bars
  • Clean geometric borders

The UNICEF Infographics print design is proof that regardless of how heavy the data is, presenting it in an artistic, easily digestible way is possible. All it takes is creative visualization skills. And the designers at Lawal Bakare harnessed this skill to deliver this colorful and informative infographic.

While some pages feature color-coded data bars in a table featuring different countries and their comparative statistics, the table is divided through clean geometric borders that balance the vivid imagery with light gray or bold black lines.

Each country on the list features in-depth details that provide more information. The data is placed into colored cards on the right side of the print, whereas the left side features a geographic view of the country.

7. Oxfam Hong Kong - Home For Dinner Campaign by THE CABINET


Standout Features:

  • Colorful design
  • Minimalist approach
  • Eye-catching from the get-go

"One in every eight people worldwide suffer from hunger. By advocating the public to have dinner at home and donate the same amount of money you would spend by dining out, Oxfam Hong Kong is branding itself as an agency determined to change the world by mobilizing the power of people against poverty." The annual Home For Dinner campaign held on World Poverty Day, 17th October, inspired The Cabinet to redefine it early by presenting the issue as something discernable and in fact, eye-pleasing.  

The agency successfully reintroduced the campaign to the public with a much clearer message, using the relevant infographic direction as the main key visual. Attracting the broadest audiences, The Cabinet used simple, minimalist and modern icons to illustrate each of the brand's mission points. With the varying palette, the backdrop draws from Oxfam's signature brand colors to give off a bold, fresh feeling and impact at first sight.
