The International Awards Ceremony is the Council’s biggest event of the year and 2018 had a record attendance. We updated the look of the event envelope, one-pagers, membership envelope, mission card, sponsor poster and presentation slides and reformatted the program to make 2018 stand out from previous years. The rejuvenated design features gradations and graphic line elements from the Global Fluency Institute website and 2018-2019 The Global Report – both of which were announced at the event. We refreshed the design in 2019 and added a table card for attendees to get involved.

In 2018, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium hosted a surprise party to celebrate Jack and Suzi Hanna’s 40 years with the Zoo. As the Zoo’s director, Jack Hanna helped make the Zoo what it is today, including its many educational programs and strong conservation efforts. In the design of these pieces, we pair Jack Hanna’s signature safari look with the sophistication of a high-end event. Die-cut leaves and a textured printing technique make this invitation package truly memorable. Ticket proceeds from this event launched the Jack and Suzi Hanna Fund for Wildlife Conservation, Transformative Education and Innovative Habitats.

The Global Report is released biennially by the Columbus Council on World Affairs to provide the community with a snapshot of the city’s global connections. We used infographics throughout this document to highlight the global fluency of the Greater Columbus region in a way that is easy to understand. Divided into three sections of People, Education, and Economy, the report includes statistics about global trade, world languages in schools and Columbus’ increasingly diverse demographics. The most recent trifold brochure also includes a large map, which highlights the international engagements of Greater Columbus-based companies and institutions.

Ohio Conference on Freight assembles over 300 professionals from across North America to share their expertise in the areas of supply chain/logistics, smart transportation technology, and federal and state policies supporting freight-related transportation and economic development. In 2017, Ibel Agency refreshed the conference’s old brand through the use of bold graphics, inviting colors and a cohesive composition. The collateral illustrates the integrated, multi-modal industry used to support economic growth in Ohio and the surrounding Great Lakes region. The program was the perfect size to be placed with the person’s nametag, or in their pocket.

Updates are made annually to include revised information and a refreshed look for the year.

This informational brochure provides the public with statistics and stories that show the work the Foodbank is doing to get fresh food to hungry people. The design further develops the look established in the 2013 Community Report with a fresh take on the bright colors and food imagery. An accordion fold allows the viewer to flip through this brochure like a book or expand it out as one long piece that flows naturally from panel to panel to tell the story. Small infographics help to highlight the most important facts throughout.

Central Ohio Greenways is the trails that connect the Central Ohio region to parks, neighborhoods, rivers, the city and more. It is maintained, and funded by partners and volunteers. The brochure captures the reader’s eye with the use of impactful infographics to give a who, what, and why summary. This opens up to a large map to show the magnitude of the trails in the region. In order to make the trails stand out, the rest of the map was simplified, included only necessary information to give the reader a frame of reference, and used muted tones. The map’s surrounding photos played as a key to the color-coded trails. The smooth, uncoated paper was used to give a light, natural feel that the greenways embody.
