NMP works for a variety of clients. Specializing in layout and design for print and online presentation, NMP works collaboratively with clients who are experts in their fields—effectively joining their team for collaborative project development.
Harvard University, T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Office of Diversity and Inclusion
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.

NMP continues to work on-demand with Coach Jodie as she needs materials to advertise upcoming programs.
Off The Pews; Faith In Action Winter 2023 Newsletter
My official work for Off The Pews (OTP) continues to be in the role of Website Administrator. That said, I also attend the Program Committee meetings and take the minutes; set and distribute the Newsletter Publishing Calendar; act as Editor and contributor for the Newsletter and other materials as needed; and liaise with OTP partners and board members to collect information for all of these functions.
OTP has an annual contract with NMP for a set number of hours of service per month. It is renegotiated once a year based on the median hours from the previous year.

Small Changes Flip Journal
32-page, spiral-bound, easel back journal for JNF clients. Design by NMP using JNF typefaces and color scheme from email and phone briefs and a few rough sample pages from other sources. Final printing by Econoprint Racine from NMP print-ready files. For this project, I prepared an estimate and JNF paid in two parts—half to begin the work and the balance upon completion.
Additional one-off projects specific to workshops offered by JNF with similar branding. These projects have been completed on-demand with end-of-the-month invoicing.

Office of Diversity and Inclusion
The Resource Guide for Historically Underrepresented Populations (sample pages in a PDF at the link will open in a new window) was under intermittent development for seven months.
Components of Work on Resource Guide
- Implementation of the revised Harvard Style Guide (color palette and support graphics) mid-production
- Editorial reorganization (writing) for section continuity
- Graphic development (maps & pointers) and placement—I’ve only visited Boston once, so I was spending some quality time with Google maps
- Proofing to make sure businesses were still open and contact information was correct.
- Final output to WCAG 2.0 AA standards including prep (many steps to follow in InDesign) and remediation (fixing any issues after PDF output)
- Oh yeah, the page layout and design.
