2014 Hermes Creative Awards Entry Spotlight: University of Saskatchewan

While the winners for the 2014 Hermes Creative Awards won’t be announced for a while, we’re showcasing select entries that stand out. Keep checking back to see if your work will be highlighted.

Hermes Creative Awards Company: University of Saskatchewan
Location: Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Title of Entry: Challenge Perceptions
Category: 11. Annual Report

University of SaskatchewanAnnual reports are usually not the most exciting publications to read. There is the mandatory letter from the CEO/president, some glitzy photographs with accompanying text, an article or two, and lines and lines of figures.

The University of Saskatchewan does things a bit differently. Located in Saskatoon, Canada, the university could be a hard sell to students, researchers, and prominent professors, but as the school tells people “our climate is cold, but our people are warm and friendly.”

And their publications are creative. The president’s report combines portrait quality photography, snappy writing, and highly stylized graphics to create a publication that people actually want to read.
