Double E Workplace Solutions, LLC 3-Day Leadership Fundamentals Workshop Workbook
NMP worked with Double E’s team to create a 48-page workbook for an upcoming 3-day workshop. The project involved: Developing style elements to supplement the existing Double E Workplace Solutions branding (the Double E logo); developing the page design (tabs and folio treatments); recreation of select pieces of artwork and infographics to suit the page size and orientation; page layout of the workbook content; rounds of proofing as needed; and regular meetings (coordinated by Double E) and group emails to keep the team in the loop.
In addition to the notebook, there were four pieces of collateral produced—stand-alone pages for feedback, assessments, and questionnaires.
To keep printing costs in check, most of the workbook is set in grayscale with a complete set of b/w style sheets. Certain pages containing key pieces of artwork were designated for color reproduction with a complete set of CMYK style sheets.

Kiwanis Club of Western Kenosha
What a great treat is has been to work with the Kiwanis Club of Western Kenosha as they prepare for the 2023 Taste of Wisconsin (July 27-29). This is no small production, and the number of people involved and the effort to line up entertainment and vendors is impressive. NMP created the event map for the upcoming event!
Thanks so much to Ron Horner for the opportunity to work on this project. If you’ve followed NMP’s news feed, you know I attended the Kenosha Chamber of Commerce B-2-B Expo last November. Ron mentioned the possibility of NMP working with Kiwanis at that time, and it has turned out well.
The work involved recreating the map base in Illustrator. I was supplied with a flattened PDF from the previous year, but elements on the map needed to move—there will be more vendors in 2023 than there were in 2022.
The artwork went into InDesign for layout, and the band schedules have been fine-tuned over the last month.
It turns out, there was a second map needed, too, for city and county planning. It is a version of the map above.
The map above is the 6/28/23 proof, and is subject to change…just FYI in case you’re planning to attend the event. I was excited to get this posted.

Work on the Graduate Outcomes sheets started in January and went through a few redesigns as the information was presented in charts first, and then icons. The icons needed to be recreated to suit the current branding by Harvard’s marketing team.

Work on the Annual Report started in 2022 with edits to the front end material, and the application of Harvard’s 2023 design style elements. The information for the data sections was not available until January 2023. The tables were set directly in InDesign, and the bar and pie charts were set in Illustrator, ungrouped for styling, and imported as in-line anchored artwork. Each bar or pie chart contains metadata for ADA compliance.
Harvard’s SPH ODI requests that all PDFs be WCAG 2.0 AA compliant. Each PDF delivered to the school is accompanied by an accessibility report confirming its status.
My work with the ODI is an on-demand business arrangement. They send me work at their convenience and are billed at the end of the month for the hours worked.
