Contracted by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors
The City of Vancouver (CoV) submitted their proposal to the Rockefeller Foundation to enter into the “100 Resilient Cities” initiative program. The proposal was successful, and as a next step they followed-up with a list of items – including service providers needed to get the project completed on time and to budget.
In 2019, Gary entered his RFP for the Design Consultant’s position and was awarded it after a rigorous screening process from both the CoV and the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisory Foundation Committee. What came next were several months of key design standards that would be used across the “Resilient Vancouver” review publication.
From disasters to economic inequity, cities around the world are tackling the most pressing issues of our time. Through holistic initiatives supporting prepared neighbourhoods, a collaborative government and safe and adaptive buildings and infrastructure, this multi-year strategy builds our collective capacity to prepare for, recover from and thrive in the face of changes and challenges.”
The initiative’s mandate can be found on the page 2 of the 95 page report.
Here are a few examples of how the graphic elements were stylized. Gary needed to find the balance of the brand guidelines from both the CoV and the 100 Resilient Cities initiative. Each of the pages were treated harmoniously across the brand expectations through the use of typesetting and easy to digest info-graphics.
