My department is looking (and strongly needing) to do an overhaul of our print materials we use for outreach – be it at conferences, meetings with partners, or a quick briefing for leadership.
Our current print materials are outdated and disorganized. We need to develop a template that can work across topics both in design as well as content organization.
I’m looking for fact sheet/1-pager/briefing paper examples from other agencies that you all think communicate what was intended effectively, concisely, and if possible, in a attractive way as well!
Thanks in advance for the help. I always get such great feedback from the GovLoop community.
Are you looking for a Design brief template?
The Government Printing Office can do that for you. We have a great staff of Graphic designers. Please contact me for further information. 202.512.0083.
@Lisa – Yes, looking for a template or just a good example.
@Tom – we’ve actually contacted them, but not sure we have the money to pay for the designers to so trying to see what we can do in house.
Lots of good examples from the national labs. Strong branding with some creative freedom.

I’m on our agency’s wellness committee, and we often order free publications from the FDA–they look nice! This is a list of fact sheets for women, as an example: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ByAudience/ForWomen/FreePublications/ucm116718.htm.
USGS has a guide for scientists who want to create a fact sheet about their work: http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/1997/fs008-97/fs008-98v1.1.pdf
We got lots of design examples that we did at GovLoop here
This one is probably the most relevant
OmniStudio does great work with branding and simple template designs for fact sheets and print material. We can also build a design that syncs with your web presence. I’d be happy to discuss further if you’re interested.
Hi Nicole; I don’t have a one pager, but establishing some basic guidelines in the form of a brand cannon is a great first step in creating a cohesive branded look for your agency. Homeland Security has branding guidelines and assets online that are a great example of how to conform communications so they all feel related. If you need some more specifics, ping me – I own an ad agency that caters to The Federal Space – I can show you some other examples too. Tina, The AD Store: 202-342-0222
