The Chattanooga Zoo at Warner Park is a 13-acre zoological park located in Warner Park in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The zoo is currently undergoing a five-phase, $12 million dollar Master Plan that is transforming the zoo into a premier zoological facility. Being that much of the money being used to make this renovation possible comes from zoo supporters, it is important to keep people knowledgeable with an annual report that reflected the care and the development of the project. This report uses a classic Little Golden Book style of illustration and design, not a style usually associated with an annual report. It has a fresh, fun and innocent feel, while still informing the reader.

The U.S. Open Sandcastle Competition is the largest sand-sculpting competition in the United States. Held in the sleepy southern California beach town Imperial Beach, the competition has been held since 1980.Although the event attracts a great number of attendees, it has almost no visual identity. The overall style of the design is a hodgepodge of Californian culture ranging from The Beach Boys image of Californians as laid-back, tanned beach-goers, the gold rush of the 1850’s, the hippy movement, and the sand sculptures themselves. I hoped to capture the simple, artistic nature of this event. I want to show that the event is about people, nature, and fun. It’s now an traditional southern California event, and I want to relay that in the design. A new identity, advertisments, stationary application, business cards were created.
