The Eurasia Foundation is a privately managed grantmaking and operating organization dedicated to funding programs that build democratic and free market institutions in the twelve New Independent States (NIS) of the former Soviet Union. It began making grants in June 1993 and, with funding to date of over $225 million from the Agency for International Development (USAID), has maintained a core program of $20-30 million per year ever since.
The Eurasia Foundation was looking for me to develop their 2003 annual report. They had expressed dissatisfaction with their previous annual reports and needed a bolder, fresher look: more appeal.
To create a more dynamic solution to the aesthetic presentation of the annual report. This included a grid system that was easily interchangeable. Goal was to attain more visual appeal through the use of photography* and a bolder color scheme than used in the past.
Annual report to be distributed at the US headquarters in Downtown DC, as well as the regional headquarters of the 12 NIS. Along with the core annual report, regional templates to be used by each field office were developed. This included communication with design firms in the 12 NIS states to insure accurate implementation of our design model.
