The 2017 Annual Report built off of the previous year’s look and feel with strong imagery, pops of orange, modern charts and icons and a color-coded portfolio map. It features an introductory letter from Lisa Castillo, Merritt’s new president and affordable housing industry veteran, which reflects on the past and looks forward to the bright future of the organization.

With the title of “Quality healthcare for all,” the 2017 Annual Report for PrimaryOne Health tells the story of the organization’s personal approach to medical care and commitment to a diverse clientele. The cover design features a mosaic of images that depict the variety of people that PrimaryOne Health serves. Lifestyle images and bright colors carry this approachable look and feel through the rest of the piece. We paired personal stories with impactful facts to successfully tell PrimaryOne Health’s story. The final annual report was sent out as a self-mailer.

Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing took on a new format for the 2017 Annual Report. We designed and developed a microsite that houses all of the stories, photos, graphs and charts that have always been a part of this publication. The site features large images opposite copy – imitating the feeling of a printed spread. A slider navigation that takes the user through pages within a section also helps to retain the experience of storytelling and pacing. Because of the digital format, however, users can now interact with some of the map graphs and watch a video that features the work that OCCH does. We created this video in partnership with Loose Films to tell OCCH’s story for those users who might not be familiar with or have a deep understanding of the organization’s work.
