Shore is an organization based in Evanston (Illinois) that improves the quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities. Through educational, residential, vocational and other related programs they provide much needed services that help an underserved group of people and their families.
This was our first year working on the annual report project, and we encouraged Shore to reimagine how they tell their story. We focused on highlighting a few of the people that truly benefited from Shore to show how their services affect real lives.
A tight print budget, and no room to hire a photographer, was a challenge that we are not unfamiliar with facing. Using some creative page layouts and a little Photoshop magic, we were able to fill the 12-page book with uplifting stories and instill a feeling of pride for those who support this amazing organization.
