Try for the Gold

Try for the Gold traces the little known history of team USA's early rugby successes in 1920 and 1924. Page2 was tasked with developing the cover and jacket design, which was to incorporate photography from these Olympic games in Antwerp and Paris, some variety of American symbolism and a clear representation of the hard-earned gold.

Berlitz Language Learning Materials

As is the case with many of our clients, it's hard to remember a time when Page2 didn't have a strong relationship with Berlitz. From their English Language Learning program to complete curricula in German, Spanish, French and other languages, we've played a lead role in the design and/or production of many Berlitz print, packaging, media and online components.

Richardson Economics

For this High School textbook design, the challenge assigned to Page2 was to make Economics cool and real — don't talk down, don't talk dry — make it look like something these kids might actually want to check out. Part of our approach was to avoid copping-out/selling-short on the level of design...if executed effectively, you truly can feature rich, involved visuals and complex graphic elements without detracting from the content.

Longfield Chemistry

These three cover concepts developed for a High School Chemistry textbook were well-received by the client. A variation that involved, in part, the blending of select elements shown here went on to form the final cover. The initial creative brief provided to Page2 called for a white background and a central visual — either composed of multiple images or a single image — that in some way depicted chemical interactions at work in the real world.

LifeSkills Training: Work Life

Developed for companies to provide to their employees, this adaptation of the Botvin LifeSkills Training program — produced by National Health Promotion Associates — promotes employee health and wellness, thereby enhancing a company's productivity. Page2's role involved the direction and composition of product photography as well as the development of the program's marketing vehicles.

Claremont Research Reports

California's Claremont Graduate University assigned Page2 the challenge of developing a design template for their professional research reports. Our goal was to elevate the quality of presentation to be more in balance with the quality of information. With these newly designed reports, the perceived value of the final work product has been raised — even before the first word of research is read.

Marvi Hammer's World of English

Marvi Hammer is a cartoon character that hosts an educational children's TV series involving journeys of scientific and linguistic discovery. The series has a strong following in Europe, Asia and South America with growing popularity elsewhere. National Geographic and Cengage Learning approached Page2 with the opportunity to design the covers for the first English Language Learning classroom components based on the character.

The World's Greatest Wine Estates

In Robert M. Parker Jr.'s book The World's Greatest Wine Estates, Newton Vineyard — a member of the Moet Hennessy USA portfolio — was featured with a complete photojournalistic profile. Seizing on this marketing opportunity, MHUSA called on Page2 to design a custom Newton-branded jacket that was applied to a quantity of books that were then gifted to industry journalists and VIPs.

Grammar: Form and Function

Complications in product pipelining meant that this McGraw-Hill grammar series needed its covers developed fast. Long story, short — Page2 was first briefed on the project early one weekday evening. Midway through the following morning, we presented the client with completed concepts, including placed photography and alternate image options. With extremely minimal changes, the final covers were then produced.

U.S. Citizen, Yes

This Cengage Learning program — subtitled Preparing for Citizenship — helps promote success on the U.S. citizenship test and encourages its readers to become active members of their communities. Page2 took an approach to its cover design that bridged the gap between textbook and novel, conveying the sentiment and symbolism of the American spirit with an engaging, approachable style.

To Those Whom Much is Given, Much is Expected

This novel — subtitled How to Unlock the Champion Inside You — is a motivational memoir of Jeff Serdinsky, martial arts champion and inspirational leader. Page2 worked very closely with the author and his team to plan and develop the design of both the book's cover and interior.

Cengage Reading Explorer

Reading Explorer — a four-level reading series for English Language Learners — represents Cengage's first collaboration with National Geographic Learning. Its captivating design keeps National Geographic's stunning imagery and real-world profiles at the forefront, getting readers fully engaged in the learning process. The program has met with both consumer and critical acclaim, with its design often noted as a contributing factor.

Cengage Pathways

Developed in two strands — Reading, Writing, and Critical Thinking and Listening, Speaking, and Critical Thinking — each consisting of five levels, this innovative Cengage + National Geographic Learning ELL program has met with great success. Its achievements, as reported from both the classroom and the critics, are due in part to its striking design that captures attention without competing with pedagogy.
