“Thanks to the tireless work of the Child Mind Institute and a growing movement of like-minded organizations and individuals, the terrible stigma that has prevented families from seeking mental health care is receding.”
Answering the Call, the 2021 Annual Report, interprets the new visual brand of Child Mind Institute.

Volunteering at our neighborhood elementary school, PS 217, in Brooklyn, John and Stephanie introduce graphic design principles to fourth and fifth graders during a Magnet Arts Program and put these concepts into practice in published exercises. We were so inspired working with this diverse group of student — they brought such unique perspectives and insights into each execution of the assignment.
Below are a few highlights from our F words project. Typographically design a word starting with the letter F. The class quite perked up at the announcement of this exercise.
A collection of final designs were digital printed and shared with the class and school leadership.
Special thanks to Judy Brandwein and PS 217 Teachers and Staff for creating such a warm and creative environment.
“None of us were prepared for the coronavirus pandemic that has brought such pain, grief and devastation to families across the world. Yet, this moment has highlighted the power of the care and resources that the Child Mind Institute has to offer children and families everywhere. Even more, 2020 reminded us of the resilience of children, the fortitude of caregivers, and the incredible dividends we reap when we invest in their success.” This is how the annual report introduction starts. There’s no better way to state the crisis, the impact, and the resilience of the Child Mind Institute and its communities. In this year’s annual report it goes on to illustrate a more full picture of their expert teams’ response to unique and developing situations, underscored with personal stories, facts-and-figures of impact, and an outline of a path forward. You can read the full report on their site (English). (Spanish)

Stislow Design is happy to have worked with the PIPs team to launch their education fund website and support their efforts to aid students’ positive impacts.
Stislow Design is proud to collaborate with mission-driven WFUNA on its branding and marketing communications. Their newly designed website launched spring 2019 with a more intuitive user experience, responsive and mobile-friendly platform and a content management framework to cohesively envelop their various initiatives and programs. The complex site architecture was a key challenge solved by prioritizing the various menus to users types. The main navigation was simplified to key themes, initiatives and programs. The homepage and landing pages were designed to navigate new site users to all information about WFUNA. The footer was leveraged to host links that were less sought out. And, micro site templates were designed and developed to contain the information architecture of the individual initiatives and programs separate of the main website.
Content is color coded to key themes (WFUNA and their global network, peace and security, sustainable development, human rights, global citizenship, and youth empowerment) creating a vibrant feel in the news masonry.
A navigable map solution illustrates WFUNA’s global network and provides contact information for all the UNAs (above). Microsite templates were leveraged for the various initiatives and programs giving the related sites a more reliable hosting solution, more cohesiveness and minimizing the management of all their content (below).
