Culture Satellite Account

The Culture Satellite Account is an accounting framework created to better measure the economic importance of culture, arts, heritage and sport in the Canadian economy. These pieces were distributed across Canada to the CSA partners who then shared them with Canadians via social media. They are also displayed on the Canadian Heritage Government of Canada website. I created these documents using Illustrator and added the logo and wordmark to the document and prepared to print with InDesign. (Audience: All Canadians)

Culture Statistics Strategy (CSS) Newsletter

I was tasked with updating the CSS newsletter’s summer issue. Basically all I needed to do was choose an image for the front page and a colour. Each issue is identified by a colour. Being new in the position, I did as requested but also offered an alternative which was a complete re-do, a facelift, if you will. They loved the new look and it is now being used as the new template! I created the cover in Illustrator and laid the text out in InDesign. (Audience: Internal Federal Government)
