"Fines Aren't Fine" Policy Brief & Factsheet

Group 34803.png

Project Overview


This policy brief and factsheet were designed as outcomes for a course entitled, Socially Just Policy Analysis. The purpose was to learn a variety of policy analysis methods and apply them to a policy area of choice.

The Result

In drafting this policy brief I was challenged to create a well-written and well-researched document that presented relevant facts in a compelling way to policy stakeholders. In contrast, the factsheet was designed for a lay audience and needed to highlight key points in a visually interesting way. It was important that the two documents have visually similar styles to clearly combine as one policy package.
