Cybera

Cybera is responsible for managing the advanced system of networks and computers that connect Alberta’s institutions to each other and the world. Following, you’ll find several projects we created for this innovative non-profit, including annual and strategic reports.

Annual Report 2014

Cybera Infographic

The 2014 annual report set out to focus on the individuals within their network. We love the look of the video-game illustrative style (note the “block people” and vibrant colours), referencing both the virtual technology and personal connections made through the network.

A gate-fold infographic spread shows the range of institutions Cybera supports: K-12, government, innovators, and post-secondary institutions. From a bird’s eye view, you can see this big picture, but we’re also representing the individual users by characters within the piece. The design features ribbon elements that have been established to reference the network’s expansion, and colourful icons to help guide the reader through the sections of the book.

 

The piece is an intimate size, creating a more personal experience, since the content is focused on telling individual stories.

Annual Report 2013

Cybera Annual Report

 We created a neatly contained package of folding cards for each section of the 2013 annual report. Once we knew we’d be designing the infographic portion to work as a stand-alone piece, it made sense to continue this idea. The ribbon aesthetic is derived from Cybera’s brand and worked well to convey the complexity and interconnectedness of the technology.

“We love working with GOOD because they bring such a unique perspective to every project they work on. I have never seen another annual report like the one they created for us this year – which is very refreshing! The focus of Cybera is on advanced technology – a topic that can be very dry or confusing to outsiders. It’s great to work with a designer who can help us break down our topics into compelling and understandable graphics. This visual storytelling is extremely important to us, and we are happy to have a design firm that takes the time to understand who we are and why we do what we do.”

Strategic Plan and Annual Report 2012

Cybera Annual and Strategic Report

During our initial client meeting about this project, the request was to have these two reports work as a set in order to convey the narrative; “Here’s where we are going” and “Here’s the proof we’re making progress.” Sized and bound identically, these books also work as a set via shared graphic elements that visually “join” the books together when they are viewed side by side.

The continuous, intersecting ribbon theme was inspired by Cybera’s recent rebrand and logo. It reflects the agency’s vast physical network while acting as a metaphor for “extending the power of bandwidth”, the theme of the annual report.
