Nieshoff Design // Recent Work



Nieshoff Design is a Massachusetts-based design studio that has been in business for over 22 years. We are a full-service graphic design firm providing sophisticated, engaging design communications. We embrace each client’s mission as our own and wholeheartedly commit ourselves to the client’s success over the long haul. The result of our dedication is that many of our client relationships are measured in decades. Our recent projects have ranged from an interactive timeline website commemorating the 50-year history of Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) to a combined web and print fundraising campaign for the Tufts Dental School. Selected client relationships include more than 18 years of working with Perkins School for the Blind (during this time we have designed over 55 annual reports and educational publications), 16 years of designing the marketing materials for the Brandeis International Business School, as well as 10 years of design work for Tufts University. Our expertise also extends to designing trade books such as Garden of Memories: A Guide to Historic Forest Hills (Forest Hills Educational Trust) and the award-winning Wilderness First Aid Handbook (Jones & Bartlett), as well as exhibition catalogs for the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College. While we specialize in addressing the communications needs of universities, nonprofits, and cultural institutions, we apply the same thoughtful approach to all of our projects. We listen carefully to fully understand the objectives of each client—then we work together to create compelling designs that achieve their goals with impact and style.

To celebrate and commemorate EDC’s 50th anniversary, we designed an interactive, web-based timeline. Each timeline section highlights one of EDC’s programs. Most sections included video content and website links. The timeline also incorporated a seven-minute video about EDC’s mission, including interviews with vice presidents, and ending with a message from the new president on plans for the future.

We worked with JSI to analyze, restructure, and redesign the site architecture for both the “bricks-and-mortar” store pages and their online catalog. Sections were differentiated using color, as well as by making use of closely cropped details from a custom assemblage created for JSI’s 30th anniversary.



“Nieshoff Design has played a key role in the development of the JSI brand. For more than 17 years they have worked on the production of our catalogs, advertisements, and marketing materials.

The selected design was a dramatic departure from previous conventional annualsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;utilizing a bright color palette, landscape format, and colorized photography.

Brandeis International Business School: 2008/09 Catalog

IBS needed a fresh contemporary look for their 2008 catalog and program brochures. We created a cool color palette and commissioned stylized student portraits with a modern feel. The landscape format catalog design is a departure from more conservative business school materials and reflecting the unique, dynamic nature of the Brandeis IBS. Our relationship with Brandeis IBS spans 17 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;allowing us to design materials based on years of experience and an intimate understanding of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and evolving global mission.

Perkins School for the Blind Annual Report 2 0 0 7

P e r k i n s s c h o o l fo r t h e b li n d : 2 0 0 7 a n n u a l r epo r t

The 2007 Annual Report focused on the impact and global vision of Perkins School for the Blind. The beautiful, sensitive portraits of Perkins students and staff capture the depth of the ongoing dedication that Perkins has to all who are part of the Perkins family. For this Annual Report, the cover strives to portray a modern-day Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller. We have provided design services to Perkins for over 18 years. This long-standing relationship is a testament to our commitment and passion for the meaningful work of the school.


123 Message from the Chair and the President Perkins School for the Blind truly is everywhere. We are a beautiful campus with classrooms, a training center for professionals and a special program for infants and toddlers and their families. We produce the Perkins Brailler on our campus and in assembly plants in South Africa and India. We send teachers to help students in public schools across Massachusetts. Our library enables people throughout New England to read. We are helping develop programs for children in over 62 developing countries. On campus, in the community and around the world, Perkins is doing what we have done since before the days of Helen Keller. We sent Perkins alumna Anne Sullivan into the community, to the Kellers’ house in Alabama, and later educated Helen as a full-time residential student. Today we continue Helen’s commitment to helping people all over the world. As it was in Helen’s time, it is today. It is a pleasure to reflect upon the tremendous accomplishments of 2007, our 178th year, and the vast number of people who have come together to ensure that Perkins continues to transform lives. We thank staff, trustees, volunteers, donors, and friends for their commitment to helping over 90,000 people on campus, in the community and around the world. Thank you for the commitment that makes dreams come true today and that plants seeds for an even greater future — everywhere. Sincerely,

Janet B. James Chair of Perkins Board of Trustees

Steven M. Rothstein President

Everyone everywhere has the right to an education. A right to develop to one’s fullest. This was the call for Helen Keller personally and for her international work. This is the call that Perkins is answering throughout the world today.

I see the hard work of our dedicated and talented staff and volunteers. I meet children and parents in the community who have new experiences that Perkins has provided for them. I visit children who are deafblind and blind with multiple disabilities in developing countries who are making important steps toward independence. Every day, I am humbled by the achievements of the devoted members of the Perkins family.

We designed The Lantern for over 15 years, then we were asked to create a new contemporary look for 2008. The redesign included the addition of vibrant four-color photography and a slightly smaller trim size. The new format resulted in a savings of nearly $60K annually in printing and mailing costs.
