75 years of social change

The Ford Foundation is one of the largest charitable-giving organizations in the world. Their grants have impacted society globally, whether we know it or not. From enabling the creation of Sesame Street to helping fight AIDS in Africa, the foundation has been on the front lines of social change worldwide since 1936.

To celebrate its 75th anniversary, The Ford Foundation came to Hyperakt to help with their largest publication of their year, their annual report. We were tasked with delivering an insightful printed and digital annual that celebrates the foundation’s legacy, while looking confidently toward the future.

Our design allows them to connect with readers using bold color and cascading photography that capitalizes on the foundation’s vast image archive spanning three quarters of a century.
