One of the most critical aspects of economic development is making connections. Whether through business networks or partnerships between the public and private sector, connections are the foundation of economic growth. For 2017, we wanted that theme - "Making Connections" - conveyed throughout the report. When designing this report my main goal was to create a product that communicated the theme, while also being visually interesting. My design philosophy incorporated a textured waveform that was used as the background. It was a seamless pattern that went from page to page. Any given page could be placed next to one another and it would connect, providing a constant reminder of the overall theme. The waveform pattern itself was representative of a speech waveform. Communication is a major part of making connections, and my goal was to symbolize that.
