In the fall of 2014 the US Endowment for Forestry & Communities asked me to graphic record their board meeting in San Diego. It was an interesting day filled with rich group discussions and informative speakers. I listened throughout the day and captured the themes and key points in pictures and words.
The Endowment loved the accessibility of the quick hand-drawn images I created live during their meeting. So when it came time to design their annual report, they asked me to do the same thing by reading the content and drawing it out.
They have 5 focus areas in the annual report, each with 3-5 short articles about that subject. Much like listening and drawing, I read the articles, synthesized the content and created a single image to represent each subject.
I love this type of work because I get the chance to work digitally and design each illustration. It’s just one more way to maximize the power visual communication.
