Project: 2007 Annual Report

Overview: This was the first annual report in the history of the institute to feature a woman scientist on the cover. This was accomplished by searching through hundreds and hundreds of photos of scientists at work in their labs. The combination of black and white photography with color images was very well received and the annual report became an instant classic.

Work encompassed:
• Design
• Photo management and selection
• Print production management

Project: 2000 Annual Report

Overview: This report was designed to reflect PPMSDs internal mandate to increase its work in reaching communities of color throughout Minnesota, North and South Dakota. At the time there was limited photography to reflect their outreach efforts to diverse populations. The design and building of shadow box assemblages with iconic symbols, found objects and ephemera representing community, communication and connection presented the best solution for the challenge.

Work encompassed:
• Design
• Shadow box assemblages
• Photo art direction
• Print management
• Invitation design for annual meeting luncheon

Result:
PPMSD considered the final execution to be a beautiful and symbolic representation of their growing work with diverse communities of color.
