Models of Care

A framework for change

A Framework to Evaluate Musculoskeletal Models of Care was designed and produced for Curtin University. The publication was released with the support of over 40 organisations worldwide.

Nikki M Group provided services including:

  • graphic design
  • cover design
  • typesetting and layout
  • image research
  • print management
  • digital PDF interactivity
  • information graphics.

Target demographic

The target audience for this document is clinicians and policy makers. The design targets the audience using:

  • a san-serif font with humanistic qualities
  • optimal text measure and font size for efficient reading
  • imagery relating to the musculoskeletal industry: skeletal structure, target population, urban environment and clinical practice
  • colour palettes that are clinical, clean, bright and vibrant
  • layout design in the form of an official report.

“We thank Nikki M Group for providing a consistently very high level of service to us. We are so impressed by the timely communication, helpful advice, efficient revisions and expert design.”

Colour composition

Three colour palettes define sections and design elements:

  • sections – bright colours
  • framework – vivid colours
  • diagrams – deep colours.

The colour palettes have different hues. This creates a layering effect, defining design elements and forming an information hierarchy.

Bone-colour tints and slate greys run throughout the document, accentuating the colour palettes.

Accessibility

Text flow and typographic arrangements have been designed to allow for screen readers to follow and read content.
