The Yearbook is an annual publication for supporters of its Teaching & Learning program. With event and image availability limited during the pandemic, we instead commissioned photographs of empty spaces. Paired with bold typography and a bright palette, the publication captures the team’s innovative methods even through uncertain times. Lush, abstract photographs introduce each of the book’s three sections, color-coded for easy navigation.” 194 pages, 8 × 8, 4-color, perfect bound.
