Global Livingston Institute | First Annual Report


The Global Livingston Institute (GLI), a nonprofit dedicated to cultivating a more global understanding of poverty and its impact on fostering healthy communities, needed an annual report designed to showcase its growth. For its first official report, the organization wanted to create something powerful. The GLI team approached CenterTable’s design team, having seen our work on reports for other nonprofits, like Tennyson Center for Children.


Using content from the client, including photos from previous trips to East Africa, CenterTable crafted three different design concepts. GLI immediately connected with one and the full design process began, starting with the development of a cohesive structure for the report. The report draws on GLI’s connection with Africa by tying in a playful pattern throughout all the pages. Photos remain the most important element of the annual report because of their realness, emphasizing GLI’s connection with the communities where they work.


The client loved the final design, writing, “you and your team are phenomenal!! I don’t know what to say or how to thank you! But you have set a very high bar for our first annual report.” You can view the full annual report below:
