(Below is the back and front cover spread)
Project Overview: 
As the Lead Designer for Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, I was tasked with creating a comprehensive and visually compelling booklet to support our application for a grant aimed at enhancing our Nursing Shared Governance Program. The education department sought to highlight our program's excellence and achievements in the most professional manner possible to secure the grant and stand out from other applicants.
