In a digital age where connectivity is as essential as the air we breathe, the European Commission’s “Broadband Investment Handbook” stands as a beacon of guidance for public authorities. And who better to crystallize this vision into print than the expert graphic designers at We’re excited to share our journey in crafting this pivotal piece of literature, which serves as a lighthouse for planning, implementing, and monitoring broadband projects.

The handbook, which has been an ambitious project for our team, is a successor to the highly-regarded ‘The high-speed broadband investment guide’ published in 2015. It’s been meticulously updated to reflect the latest in technological, policy, regulatory, and financial developments, including a critical new chapter on State aid.

Our designers embraced the challenge, understanding that each of the eight chapters had to be both informative and visually engaging. With a clear and concise design, we’ve made complex concepts accessible, ensuring that each page leads the reader seamlessly through the wealth of information.

Chapter 1 sets the scene with an introduction to key concepts and context, designed with clarity to welcome readers to the subject matter. Chapter 2 underscores the importance of a well-designed broadband plan, using visual cues to emphasize strategic points.

In chapters 3 through 6, our layout and design choices bring to life the four critical strategic choices: Investment model, Network type, Business model, and Financing tools. We utilized bold headings, clear tables, and informative diagrams to distill complex information into digestible insights.

The sleek design of Chapter 7 outlines the action plan and execution process, using timelines and flowcharts to depict the stages of implementation. The closing section, Chapter 8, delves into the nuances of Broadband investment and State aid with precision, ensuring that the guidelines are not just read but understood.

At, we understand that a brochure or booklet design is not just about aesthetics; it’s about creating a functional piece of art that communicates and resonates. Our design philosophy is simple: merge creativity with utility, ensuring every piece we create is as useful as it is beautiful.

This handbook is not just a document; it’s a visual journey through the realm of broadband investment. It’s a testament to our belief that good design goes beyond the surface, becoming an integral part of the content it presents.
