Busy at Work with Annual Reports

June 14, 2019

WSS has been busy the first half of the year helping our nonprofit clients put together their annual reports. These reports help our clients share their stories of the incredible things they’ve accomplished in the previous year. For each client, we assist them in creating a unique piece that that represents an overall theme for their year.

Greater Muncie Habitat for Humanity

In 2018, Habitat launched their “Serving Boldly” campaign, and they used the annual report to tell stories of partner families, volunteers, and neighbors working together to serve their communities.  Our team wanted to create a BOLD design to match their work; that included black and white photography with bold pops of their turquoise blue used throughout. Creative Director Lucas Tetrault added more flare with a die-cut cover and translucent paper to grab any reader’s attention.

The Community Foundation of Muncie & Delaware County

The Community Foundation reached a number of “Milestones” in 2018, and their report highlights those wonderful achievements! From supporting more than $50 million in grants to receiving more than $4 million in gifts to celebrating 30 years of providing scholarships to students, this momentous year needed to be recognized with a standout design. Thinking of milestones, many ideas came to mind but one that keep repeating itself was this idea of a journey or map. WSS used this idea to create “mile makers” for each section of the book as if you are taking the journey with the Foundation. With bright colors and hints of silver throughout, this report truly shines.

8twelve Coalition

Achievements were not in short supply for the 8twelve Coalition in 2018! Form the learning cohort and Lowe’s Volunteer day to improving 20 houses in the core impact area, the Coalition has made a lasting impact. WSS had the honor of putting together their very first annual report as a way for them to share all the accomplishments that happen when neighbors get involved and truly commit to making their community a better, more beautiful place to live.
