The Problem

Founded by retired lieutenant-general and celebrated humanitarian Roméo Dallaire, The Romeo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative are a global partnership committed to ending the use and recruitment of child soldiers worldwide, through ground-breaking research, advocacy, and security-sector training. 2011 and 2012 had proved to be the biggest period of growth for the organization thus far, welcoming new staff into the fold, delivering on projects that had begun with the organization’s inception, as well as numerous publications and a feature-length documentary, and it was vitally important that the Initiative deliver an annual report to their partners detailing these accomplishments.

The Project

The Romeo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative contacted our team for a solution to deliver a visually appealing annual report for their 2012 year that highlighted this growth. The Initiative supplied us with striking photography from their team of seasoned photojournalists, as well as an advocacy timeline and financial figures that helped us to create engaging infographics mapping the organizations growth. I have always enjoyed working with clients who seek to change the world for the better, and the well-supplied and engaged marketing department of the initiative made putting together a clean layout design easy.

The team at the Romeo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative was a pleasure to work with, and together we succeeded in creating a highly-acclaimed document that I am proud of to this day, that went on to garner praise from the general himself.


The process and product were top notch and Jason went above and beyond the call. It actually went on to win a design award, which is pretty special. Jason has unique ways of graphically representing data and concepts. Superb initiative — after the briefing he didn’t pepper me with unnecessary questions. I was blown away and I’m a tough, tough client (with graphic design experience myself).
