Magnolia Scholars series, 2015-2018
This set of annual reports was a 4-year series, following one cohort of students from freshman year through graduation. Magnolia Scholars at Wake Forest are the first in their families to attend college. Each year, we reported statistics about the students’ progress as well as features about the students, and the financial report on the fund. I created a unified look to carry through all four years, with a shifting color palette to differentiate each year from the previous reports.
