Yesterday, the Halifax 2011 Canada Games released the Final Corporate Report for this past winter’s successful event.
This report was a privilege to work on with such a great resource of amazing photography from Games time. It’s a beautiful, colourful, 9.5 x 7.5 inch book peppered with full page photos which are paired with memorable quotes from the event.
I had completed most of this project during my employment with the Games, but had a few details to add this week, along with creating a French version of the layout. For the moment, this has been released online as a .pdf for screen viewing, but we’ll be producing some quality bound copies for the archives and funding partners.
Melissa MacKinnon and Andrea Young did an excellent job pulling together the content. Photos were taken by the volunteer team which was lead by the incredible photographers at Communications Nova Scotia. Copy editing for this project was handled by my old friend Tara Lee Witchen, who I was lucky to work with on quite a few projects for the Games.
