State of Sheffield Annual Report

 

For a live brief set by Sheffield council me and a group of 5 other students were chosen to design the cities annual report.

 

My role within the group was project manager, and I was elected to control communications among ourselves and between the council and printers. I found the whole experience invaluable; working with the printers, managing a team, dealing with a real client and all under such a tight time frame has taught me a lot of important lessons about working on live briefs.

 

As this was also the first fully functioning document I have worked on that has gone to print, I also discovered a lot about the technical details to do with In Design, stocks, inks, sending work to print, time management and costings.
