National Endowment for Democracy


Print Design

In 2019, Rings Leighton designed a template for the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) to help them maintain a uniform standard for the variety of reports they publish. A critical need for these templates was the ability to produce them in Microsoft Word, allowing users who don’t have access to Adobe Creative Suite to layout and edit the reports. One of the first reports built on this template was NED’s To Catch and Kleptocrat: Lessons Learned from the Biens Mal Acquis Trials in Paris.

In 2021, we assisted NED in laying out To Catch and Kleptocrat in Spanish, French and Portuguese. Building these reports in different languages resulted in the content reflowing differently than the original, English report. But the flexible template we built could easily handle the new content.
