In their 2015 Annual Review, Sussex Community Foundation wanted to highlight the connection between their donors and the people they fund.

Together we decided to focus on the journey of a selection of donors, exploring their personal motivations and rewards. Contributions from a leading professional and academic on the importance of philanthropy and the management of endowment funds help to give the review gravitas and depth.


We adopted the look of a considered financial report to reflect the theme of fund management. For the cover, we selected a rich-coloured, uncoated paper and applied a portion of the logo in a metallic ink for a traditional and refined feel.

Inside, bright, confident layouts and typography together with the careful use of the Foundation’s colour palette gave the whole review a professional feel.

I can totally recommend Wave. I’ve worked with them across a number of projects over the years and they also designed and built our website.

The team at wave are brilliant to work with – very creative, innovative, knowledgeable and, above all, patient!
