Emmaus Bible College Annual Report

Brand Owner/Company: Emmaus Bible College
Designer: Jesse Lange
Print Method: Offset

Comments on using metallic & special effects in this design: A few years back I was re-imagining the look and feel of our college's annual report. I was trying to combine a strong cover design into a simple page layout with ample white space, and metallic copper ink was the solution. I created several metallic duotones that when combined portrayed a rich patina that was a perfect accompaniment to the cover graphic. It worked well enough to generate increased revenue from new donors, and it received an award that year with GDUSA's American Graphic Design Awards contest.
