Regional District of Kootenay Boundary

The goal for this project was to make a referendum about sewer infrastructure interesting and informative. I worked with the Communications Department of the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary in Trail, BC to produce this brochure.

Illustrations were used to make the information more accessible than a full page of text about sewers. The sewer pipe illustrations are connected and flow from page to page, to keep the reader moving along. Humour was introduced in the speech bubbles to give an overview and to draw the reader in to discover more information.

We created a 4″ x 6″ – 4 panel accordion folded brochure to make it more noticeable than a standard 8.5″ x 11″ sheet, which might just get tossed into the recycling without being read. A web version of the brochure is also available online.

I think this pamphlet achieved the goal making a complicated topic accessible and interesting.
