Annual report for the city of Bergen, department of cultural affairs
For each year, The Municipality of Bergen pick a new agency to design their cultural annual report. The brief was to put our own spin on the concept and layout, and we landed on experimental graphic music notation as our source of inspiration. A combination of shapes composed over a set of lines spell out the names of each cultural «genre». For the cover, illustration elements from throughout the report come together to form the title.
We gave each cultural «genre», or chapter, its own color to be used in charts and graphs. On the middle spread, a landscape of pie charts shown in sizes relative to each other, gives an immediate visual impression of which cultural genre gets the least and most funding.
