The Need for a New Designs
MIND Research Institute approached us needing help designing and developing a landing page and printable PDFs to showcase their annual report. Their yearly report helps them show proof of concept to their mission and maintain funding as a nonprofit, making it an integral piece of their collateral. Not only would a downloadable PDF available on a landing page help detail their yearly ongoings to their stakeholders, but it would open the door for the public to get a better understanding of the nonprofit.
Once we finished our discovery phase, where our teams get to know each other and go over high-level items, we were able to begin the design and development process. MIND Research Institute provided our team with buyer persona information, a wireframe for the page, a manuscript of the report, and all appropriate links for the project. We then worked on:
- One scrolling landing page to represent the report
- A web PDF version with a link to download and print at the bottom of the landing page
- A ½ page, double-sided flyer featuring information from their annual report
- Two revisions were allotted for both designs
Working closely together, MIND Research Institute and our team developed a stunning landing page they used to host their annual report online, which featured:
- A responsive design
- Infographic of statistics - on the page and in the PDF
- An interactive map
- Share functionality
- Jump navigation
- Video components
- A printable version of their report
As noted, we also created two PDFs -- one of the entire annual report, and the two-sided flyer their philanthropic partnerships team used when speaking with potential partners. Ultimately, by the end of our collaboration, MIND Research Institute was left with multiple designs that highlight the critical work they do to redefine math education.
