The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute is a world leading medical research organisation – the legacy and vision of Victor Chang a pioneering heart surgeon. Each year they publish an Annual Report as a record of their research, publishing, advocacy and fund raising activities.
2012 marked 20 years since Victor Chang’s passing and the report’s design marked this milestone by pulling together archival images and stories of Victor Chang’s achievements and the development of the legacy he left behind – the Institute.
The simplicity of the design system allows page headings to float freely and graphic markers styled as ‘totems’ punctuate the flow of the document and provide a visual hierarchy. The effect is scrapbook in feel, fluid and editorial, yet balances an appropriate level of precision and order requisite for an annual report.
