Sanctuary magazine

Ministry of Defence (MOD)
(CDS, 2010)

Brief: Yearly magazine focusing on environmental projects on MOD Defence Estates property, and championing the local conservation groups who look after these sites.

Stylistically the magazine makes the most of the stunning nature photography available (many of the conservationists are stunning amateur photographers) without disguising its military aspect ('it can't be all fluffy bunnies').

Due to a tight budget the design had to be flexible and quick to lay out, and to work equally well through all sections of the magazine. The end section, which focuses on the work of the regional conservation groups, has a slightly different look to make it stand out, as well as incorporating maps showing each group's location.
