Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Nursing Accomplishments Booklet (2022)

In collaboration with Evelyn Ku, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, I designed a comprehensive booklet to highlight the accomplishments of our nursing staff over the year 2022. This project aimed to celebrate the dedication and achievements of our nurses, reinforcing our commitment to quality healthcare.

Project Overview
The booklet was crafted with a focus on consistent branding, employing our hospital's logo colors to ensure a cohesive and professional presentation. It served not only as a record of the past year's milestones but also as an inspirational piece for our staff and the broader community.
Design Elements
Color Scheme and Branding: 
The booklet utilized the official Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital colors to maintain brand consistency. This visual strategy was crucial in reinforcing the hospital’s identity and ensuring the booklet aligned with other marketing materials.
Layout and Typography: The design featured a clean, modern layout with a balanced mix of text and imagery. Typography was chosen to be both professional and readable, ensuring that the information was accessible to all readers.
Imagery and Graphics: 
High-quality images of our nursing staff and hospital activities were integrated throughout the booklet to personalize the content and celebrate our team visually. Info-graphics and charts were used to present data on our accomplishments clearly and engagingly.
