Our goal was to make
the strategy document visually contemporary, accessible and reader-friendly
as well as authoritative. We focused on changes in three areas: text layout,
typography and photography.
We re-organised the layout of the large sections of text to achieve greater
clarity and coherence and to reflect the NLSAs priorities. Colour,
headlines and effective use of white space entice readers into the content.
We also introduced a more modern typeface that is easier to read.
Photography was a major area for improvement in what was necessarily a
text-heavy publication. We reduced the number of photographs used in the
first edition and replaced them with significantly stronger images of
North London people, street scenes and panoramas.
