RUMC Department of Internal Medicine Annual Report

Theme, Layout and Design, Copy Writing Oversight, Photography Art Direction, Print Coordination

In the fall of 2009, the Department of Internal Medicine at Rush University Medical Center contacted Marissa Strassel Design to oversee design, project management and copy writing for their FY 08-09 Annual Report. After conducting initial interviews, establishing timelines and project goals, themes were brainstormed and design concepts created. Working in collaboration with a copywriter, we established a theme for the report – “A 360 degree view” – to support the concept that the department is a vibrant and integral piece within the Medical Center. Design elements include curved horizontal lines that float and bounce along the bottom horizon of each spread. In addition, we worked closely with the photography department at Rush to art direct and coordinate photography using wide-angle shots at locations throughout the Rush campus. The result is a report that presents a unique perspective to readers of department accomplishments, highlights, financials and goals looking forward.

"The Department of Internal Medicine at Rush University Medical Center asked Marissa to designed their 2008-2009 Annual Report. Her conception, wonderful workflow, creativity and understanding of change requests made the project a dream. Marissa is highly creative and a very easy-going person to work with. I found Marissa to be friendly, articulate, very professional and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for graphic design. You will find Marissa makes a great addition to your team." — Tulay Nalbant, Department of Internal Medicine
