designing a gender-inclusive tech ecosystem

A national NFP looking to strengthen our digital advantage in the global economy.

When releasing their report Gender Equity in Canada’s Tech Ecosystem, ICTC needed a collaborator that could represent their findings with a sensitivity and flow that let the important subject matter shine. We delivered a clean design that’s simple to navigate and approaches the topic with boldness and accessibility.


This 80-page report covers dense material, so the layout and graphic elements needed to help ease legibility, while also reflecting diversity, queerness, and gender non-conformity throughout the design.

This concept uses diverse, dynamic characters to evoke feelings of progress, support and inclusion, with geometric shapes representing movement and progress, guiding the eye through the text.

Working with BOLD LIP was a collaborative, creative, and seamless experience. The team’s designs help deliver research on a tough subject matter in a dynamic and digestible format.
