The first few redesigned issues of The Advocate were images from events that were held and highlighted within the issue. A special cover featuring the Honorable Justice Marshall was designed to honor Black History Month.
A professional and clean header for the redesign provided an opportunity to use photography to highlight the contents of the newsletter, include the 100 year celebration logo, and make it a more welcoming read.
On the left was the template the team had been using to self-publish since 2015. This newsletter is considered a record of the activity of the organization, and the Executive Director determined it was time to improve the newsletter's appearance. I was brought on just before the September issue was going to press, so I made minor updates to the existing layout, while working to design a new template.
