We started working with CCAFS when the report was in the drafting stage. At that time, the graphics in the report were a mix of new diagrams concepted by the authors, and charts or maps cited from other sources. All had to be recreated to bring them in line with the visual style and color palette we established for the report.
For the original diagrams and flowcharts created for this report, we worked collaboratively to offer improvements on visual structure, language, and design to ensure the core narrative came through clearly.
We also redesigned charts and graphs that were cited from previously published sources. For these charts, we brought fresh visual thinking to each, and made sure the data visualization method made sense for what the chart was trying to teach the reader. In some cases, we proposed brand new chart types. In others, we introduced annotation and more thoughtful use of color so each chart can tell a story.
