Good Shepherd Services
Creating publications for an organization that serves over 30,000 program participants in NYC
Good Shepherd Services is a leading youth development and family services agency in New York City that serves over 30,000 program participants a year. Designlounge has designed eight annual reports, a monograph describing the evolution of this mission-driven organization, capabilities brochures, maps to locate the many programs throughout the city, newsletters, as well as advertisements.

Service Brochure System
The next step was to design a system of services brochures and separate program location maps that were housed in a specifically created pocket folder. Each brochure was color-coded and designed to be short and concise so they could be changed and reproduced easily.
Good Shepherd Services Monograph
Incorporated in 1947, Good Shepherd Services’ work on behalf of New York’s most vulnerable is underscored by its original mission and core values, which are driven by the belief that despite the challenges people face, if given the right set of supports and opportunities, they have the ability to change and grow over time. Today Good Shepherd Services is an extraordinary example of a children, youth and family services agency that is leading the nonprofit field and influences public education to effectively support young people. Good Shepherd Services asked us to create the organization’s monograph to trace its history and successes.

Annual Report: Expanding Boundaries
The accomplishments and activities described in this annual report highlight just some of the ways that Good Shepherd Services has worked to help program participants take ownership of a more promising future. Central to this work are the partnerships with families, with schools, and with the broader community. We initiated and art directed a photoshoot to capture the essence of six program participants and made the portraits the focus of the report. The description of the achievements and financials were printed separately and bound into the folded report.
