Annual Report BY localflavor
Mile High Business Alliance 2011 Annual Report Cover

My Role in this Project

This is one of those fun projects that had a general outline for content, but that grew and evolved as the design developed. For example, instead of a list of highlights from the year, I thought a timeline with thumbnails would be a more interesting way to present the information. Also, since the organization’s biggest assets are its relationships and connections to other people, I decided to add a playful staff profile section–just another opportunity to say “hi! we’re actual people and not just some name on an automated phone menu somewhere.”

I created all of the staff illustrations and shot most of the photos.

About this Project

Being Awesome is AWESOME fest 2011 is an event to bring together people who have ideas, skills, and excitement about getting something awesome done. The theory is that when you gather a bunch of inspired people into the same room, good things will inevitably happen.

My Role in this Project

I designed the logo, website, and all of the print collateral for this project. The programming work for beingawesomeisawesomefest.com was done by John Larson of JPL Consulting.
