Andrew Rae doodles in Nesta annual report

Doodles by illustrator Andrew Rae in Nesta’s 2002-2003 annual report, designed by Blast, have been hand-drawn to denote its support of creativity. As the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, Nesta funds a host of innovative design, technological and creative projects to help bring ideas to market.

Blast commissioned Rae to provide a mercurial creative element alongside the conventional treatment of the factual content.
