Cal-Diego PVA’s annual report was always an interesting project for me I was able to work on it over a few months instead of the normal 3-4 week scheduled of the newsletter. This allowed me some freedom to be a little artistic as long as all the vital information required of a nonprofit organization was included inside.
For the 2008 annual report I struggled for a while to decide what the cover should be. Most of the inside layout and art was done before the cover was made. At one point I found a stock photo of the flag on this cover in another folder from a newsletters cover and decided to go with it. I would come back to this photo of the flag over and over again. For some reason I could never find another flag photo that had as much character as this one and it adapted and fit to whatever I wanted to do with it.
