Photo of Goodwill annual report

Alexander Isley (West Redding, Ct.), in ongoing work with Goodwill, made their first annual report with the organization a narrative experience, with the progressive unfolding of pages revealing new information. The report presents all the required content: a welcoming letter, overview of mission, success stories, and financial information, all presented as part of a story line. And it ends, as these things should, with “A big thank you” to the year's contributors.

Program journal for TEDMED

Alexander Isley Inc. (West Redding, Conn.) once again was a part of the communications team for TEDMED, the annual gathering focused on the future of health and medicine. The centerpiece of the firm’s work was the program journal, which showcased this year’s 57 speakers. The Isley team worked with students and instructors from RISD’s school of fine arts to create a series of varied and compelling portraits that reflected the interests and passions of the presenters.

Alexander Isley Working with Girl Scouts Design

Alexander Isley (Redding, Conn.) is working with the Girl Scouts of the USA on the conceptualization and design of its new bullying awareness campaign, Be a Friend First. The firm created a set of communication tools that provide instruction to regional Girl Scouts councils on ways to build awareness, generate funding, and implement the program on a local level. A central part of the visual system is the “BFF” symbol, created using a blue ribbon, a symbol of anti-bullying awareness.
