Designing the Homepage as a model, we created graphic tools to punch up their imagery and unite their messaging in a cohesive style: a newsprint photo treatment to convey the gravity of the issue, and a bold type and color system to give a sense of urgency. The team could then re-purpose our visual system to build out the remainder of the website.
