Design Solution:

The infographic feel of the pullout flowchart at the beginning is carried throughout the booklet, which is designed with a modern “digital” vibe. Increased emphasis on the visual elements of the design was achieved through the addition of tables with bold step lettering, distinctive icons for easy identification of the different courts and creative callouts of instructions on sample forms. Margins were widened and font was enlarged overall to improve readability. The project was more than a year in the making, involving input from the courts, government, prosecutors, legal workers in the field and individuals in the system.
