The general format of these annual reports include featured milestones of the museum and its programming, along with donor listings and other recognition of those helping to keep everything running. The overall theme of the moving timeline was key to tie the spreads together, running as a sidebar in the articles. And keeping in mind the subject matter and audience, which includes the aforementioned, it has been imperative to present all information in a clear and concise way, without too much graphic experimentation.
The annual report, as all previous years have gone, include truncated schedules and deliverables arriving at different intervals of the production period. Due to these factors along with the design expectations of the leadership roles at the museum, it has always been in everyone’s best interest not stray too far from layouts that have been agreed upon in previous years.
