Nicole was wonderful to work with. She understood the specs and requirements of the design, and developed our requested design beyond our expectations.

We work in schools and local communities in London and around the UK to help people from different background build positive relationships. Our programmes enable people from different backgrounds – both religious and non-religious – to learn from each other and work together.

We are publishing a briefing paper alongside an awards ceremony. The awards ceremony recognises community projects in London who are doing good work. The briefing paper makes a case for the importance of local projects in London which build bridges between people of different faiths and beliefs. The text and suggested design ideas are included in the document Briefing Paper DRAFT.docx.
Another booklet for the awards ceremony has already been designed (see Brochure Design.pdf). This briefing paper will be given out at the same event as the brochure. Accordingly, the design of the briefing paper should fit the overall look of the event as well as the look of our brand identity (see 3FF Design Guidelines.pdf).
However the briefing paper should also have its own identity, which communicates professionalism, expertise and creativity. The audience for the briefing paper is broad, so we would also like to include a few images. We have suggested images and have included a link to the folder containing these images in the Briefing Paper DRAFT.docx file.
1. The printed booklet will be A5 (A4 folded) and must have either 16 or 20 pages (including front and back covers).
2. The cover of the booklet requires a design.
3. We have included preferred pictures to be used in the paper (see notes on the Briefing Paper DRAFT.docx file). Some pictures are specific to community projects and should be included. Please do use your best judgment on what works where in terms of layout.
4. Please note that the text file for the paper (Briefing Paper DRAFT.docx) is in draft form. A few of the words may change for the final version after a copy edit, but the basic length of the document will remain the same.
5. Some details for the print file to meet our printer's requirement:
-The file should be supplied as four-colour process CMYK and not RGB colour space.
-The document’s page size is the finished trim size.
-Fonts are embedded or converted to outlines so no fonts are needed.
-All scans resolution are 300 dpi at 100% of the final image size.
Images are embedded in the file.
-Files are supplied with 3mm bleed.
-Any trim, score or fold marks are indicated and outside the live print area.
-Artwork is at least 5mm from the edge of the page; this is regarded as a safe or quiet area.
-Black text is 100% black and not a mix of CMYK.
-White text is not set to overprint.
-Any multiple-page PDF consists of single pages running from the front cover through to the back cover, including blank pages if needed.
-If folded, check artwork is setup correctly for these folds.
