We have had the pleasure of working with CANARIE on a multitude of projects ranging from the concept development of annual reports to the graphic design of banner stands and tradeshow booths. Our team loves challenging and innovative projects and we are always excited to get our creative juices flowing and our brains buzzing when a new project comes in from our client.
CANARIE Helps Canada Get There First was the theme of our clients 2014 Annual Report. The cover features overlapping hexagon shapes which create a pattern that evokes movement, innovation and growth. These were then paired with a photograph of triumph to further symbolize the theme. The hexagon shapes then became part of the report layout - with content and images integrated within. Infographics also played a key role and were introduced throughout to highlight keys facts and statistics.
We developed a simple but innovative design for this series of fact sheets for our client. Chevrons were used in the design to symbolize CANARIE's forward thinking, and content was organized efficiently to ensure the information was easy to gather. We utilized our clients primary and secondary colour palette to differentiate the set of fact sheets, but a consistent layout was applied to the set. These designs were then turned into a client-friendly format (Microsoft Word) for internal-office use.
