This report celebrates the achievements of the Children's Investment Fund's (CIF) Building Quality Capital Fund and highlights the importance of investing in child care facilities.

Isidor Studio collaborated with CIF, an affiliate of the Community Economic Development Assistance Corporation (CEDAC), to design the organization's report and supporting graphics—including a timeline infographic and map of fund grantees. The report's content and design aim to clearly communicate reflections, lessons, and an envisioned future for a world in which substantial investment in child care infrastructure helps transform learning opportunities for children and their families. The graphic design incorporates a soft pastel palette with curved design elements to emulate a youthful air while maintaining a tone of seriousness.
