Department of Energy - Recovery Newsletter - the Department of Energy originally approached me asking how I could help update their recovery newsletter. Shown here is the final special wrap up issue, but the goal of the newsletter was to provide updates to all levels of government on how Recovery Act money was utilized.
During my initial meeting with the Office of Environmental Management I found out that they regularly received images from numerous offices across the U.S., however, they really weren't utilizing the photos. The template and style I proposed was focused almost solely on the images and they really dictated the design. The newsletter took on more of a magazine feel than your traditional newsletter. I also added some interactivity to it by linking to videos, images and adding internal links and jump marks so that a user could easily skip through the PDF from the table of contents or quick tabs. The new design shortened their timeline from 3 weeks originally to just 1.
