The 2012 Annual Report was definitely one the most interesting and labour extensive project of the year, because 2012 was highlighted by the 100th anniversary of the association and the memorable bronze medal by the Canadian women’s national team at the Olympic football tournament. With the title “Capturing the Moment” I was tasked to design a centennial annual report that would look like an old photo/scrapbook with a timeline section and the usual text, graphs and statistics you find in annual reports.
To play with the title “Capturing the Moment”, each section is identified by a meaningful out of focus black and white photo with the exception of a small sharp colour portion framed in white. The explanation of that “moment” is written down in script along side the frame.
To give the final product an old feel, I used a matte text paper for the inside and a linen textured cover paper for the cover. The final product and following appreciations was above my expectations.

In this project, each student created a portfolio website that featured all graduating graphic design student for 2012. While a lot of students build their website around the same theme as the graduates exhibition, I decided to go in a completely different direction… a periodic table of graduating students. I must admit that my idea would have been more fitting for chemistry graduates, but since each student has its strenghts and weaknesses, certain elements mixed together could create a reactive design. This is the basic chemistry of teamwork. My website wasn’t chosen as the official website, but was a finalist. The official 2012 Graphic Design graduates website will be accessible here at the end of the semester.
The live version of my website can be accessed here. The animated introduction was made in Adobe After Effects. Note that only my student page is available on this website.
