Harrow-on-the-Hill design group Nim has created the 1999 annual report for Plan International, which will be distributed in the UK at the end of this month. The 28-page publication, called One child – A whole community, aims to promote the UK-based charity which helps children in developing countries. ‘It needs to be informative and of interest to a wide range of audiences including sponsors, funders, Government and the media,’ explains Nim director Lim Khaw. ‘Using lots of photographs gives the impression of it being both a dynamic and credible organisation.’ A series of personal accounts from children involved with the charity are also included, explaining how Plan has helped each of them individually.
