Kolisi Foundation

My experience designing campaign materials, posters, social media posts, and an annual report for a non-profit organization in Cape Town, South Africa.

Annual Report

An annual report is an essential document for any non-profit organization that summarizes the past year's programs, milestones, and financial information to current and potential donors.

Since this was the Kolisi Foundation's very first annual report, a lot of work was done to figure out what to say and how to condense an entire year of impactful work into a managable amount. This was my primary project over the course of my 10 weeks in Cape Town.

The published version is now available here.


Inspirational Posters

This was a quick passion project, towards the end of my internship. The Kolisi team was working on a revamp of the Saartjie Baartman Centre, and these posters added a colorful and inspirational pop to the walls.

The photo of the posters in real life was photographed by Carli Smith.


Emergency Contacts Posters

This project involved designing an easy to read, on-brand poster of essential contact numbers for South African communities. The poster was distributed to various community kitchens that the Kolisi Foundation supports.

Fundraising Campaigns

Fundraising is a crucial part of any non-profit organization to keep the work going. Part of my job for these 10 weeks was to create a variety of campaign materials ranging from branded popcorn boxes to "table talker" information cards.


The end of one chapter

Although my time in Cape Town only lasted 10 short weeks, I am continuing to work with the Kolisi Foundation team on a freelance basis back in my home of New York.
