Nexus Global Youth Summit

Nexus, an organization of the UN, is a global movement to bridge communities of wealth and social entrepreneurship. With thousands of members from 70 countries, we work to unite young investors, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists and allies to catalyze new leadership and accelerate global solutions.

  • Back Story

    Founded in 2011, Nexus has hosted over 20 summits across six continents to connect young people from diverse backgrounds and link communities that would otherwise never meet. Nexus also conducts research and provides thought leadership to facilitate collaboration and build a global culture of philanthropy.

    People around the world are seeking transformative ideas, new resources, and new leadership to ensure a more peaceful and sustainable future. And, through NEXUS, younger generations rise to meet the challenge.

  • Design & Aesthetic

    I was given the opportunity to design the program this years 6th Annual Global Youth Summit. Based on that, I used the hexagon from their logo to create this mountain shape, using specifically 6 hexagons, highlighting the "summit" in yellow. As far as typography goes, the only font family used throughout this entire piece is Helvetica, a decision made by the UN. The layout for this program is very simple, and contained within the proportions of the golden ratio.
