USGBC Annual Report 2014


The Illinois Chapter of the United States Green Building Council is a leader in the education, training and promotion of green and sustainable buildings across the state. While achieving numerous goals and growing at a strong rate, it needed a vehicle to report its success to current and future members. They asked Vertical to design their annual report.

The goal of the 16-page annual report was to reflect the innovative and personable image of the USGBC-Illinois while communicating its success. The report was well-received and produced in time to be introduced at the Limelight Gala, the organization’s annual fundraising event attended by key influencers in the green building and sustainability communities.
