Each year, I get to work on an annual report for 826CHI. Being a non-profit, budgets tend to be tight. So we had to get creative.

Each year, I get to work on an annual report for 826CHI. Being a non-profit, budgets tend to be tight. So we had to get creative.

We used a combination of elements we could screen print & assemble by hand, and some using the office laser printer.

The overall running theme for the Chicago office of 826 is espionage (think Spy Kids meets Watergate), so this report was made to feel like a top secret dossier you might receive under a coffee table from a man with terrible sunglasses and an over-sized suit.

On this version you can still see the pen I used to fill in some of the letters on the cover because I messed up the screen printing.
