Tri-Cities Historical Museum's Grand River Packet
What was the goal of this project?
The museum wanted to give this publication more value to its patrons to help increase the interest in attending the museum. We decided to make it more of a magazine size publication. They had a limited budget for it, so the cover was four-color process while the body was black & white. The idea seemed the logical move because the bulk of the images used were old black & white photos. They also sold sponsorship ads that helped offset the cost.
Below are flipbook versions of the project for the three years we produced it and handled getting it printed.
