I was honored to be asked by the City of Oakland’s Oakland Unite program, to create a two-year spending plan report for them. They had never worked with an outside designer before, but asked me to submit a proposal to them. I did, and we spent the next month working at a steady pace to create the content and design to showcase the wonderful work that they and their community partners do.
We wanted the report to be accessible to members in the city government, their community partners, and the general public. We chose a color scheme that plays off their logo, and make sure the report would be clean and appeal to folks in the community.
Here is what they said about working with me:
This is so exciting! Thank you for pulling such a beautiful document together so quickly.We’ve shown it to a number of people on the team and they feel so proud and seen and excited. Thank you! – Josie Halpern-Finnerty, Program Planner, Oakland Unite
