Why would you recommend it to other people?

Evaluation reporting is often presented in a way that is detrimental to supporting use. Long, unengaging evaluation reports and executive summaries that are hard to quickly read mean that potential users of the evaluation's findings may not fully engage with the evaluation's findings. These examples are really effective in showcasing alternative ways of structuring these reporting formats that place the user needs front and centre. Stephanie Evergreen's annotations are effective in highlighting the graphic design principles behind these examples.
