At Elevation Church, we don’t struggle with trying to find things to celebrate, we struggle with taking the time to celebrate them well. This year, instead of producing our Annual Report in magazine-only format, our Digital Team set out to extend the celebration of God’s blessings on our church in the form of an online, interactive version. We started with the design assets from the print piece and added layers of content, video, and interaction to further engage our audience with the information. Presenting this accounting of the year to our church and the world is an important part of promoting transparency in our operations and finances as well as expressing our gratitude for what God has done through our church in 2011.

Really smart way to deliver an annual report. I’d think people would finally actually check it out if they didn’t have a vested interest monetarily. Outside of that it’s a really well done, extremely detailed parallax based design. The sections are all clearly demarcated and the experience from going from section to section or just scrolling is engaging.
