The difference in control…

This is the 2007 Annual Report I designed for the Ottawa Mission. I love the cover. I designed the cover and the client loved it. They did not feel the need to direct the art before the onset. They let me choose the pictures and only gave me the simplest of criteria regarding logo, date, etc.

Then, on the other hand, there is the 2008 Annual Report. I don’t think it fails necessarily as a design solution. However, everything was directed. From the colours to the photos and the necessary inclusion of a quote. I struggled with a different person than the previous year to create a forced creative solution. I lost the client the following year and was exceptionally disappointed. 😦
