Stream Creative Wins 414Digital Best Digital Display Award

Author: Stephanie Santoro

IMG_2020.jpgSuccess is its own reward. Of course, a shiny, glass trophy is also appreciated. Stream Creative ended November 2017 on a high note when the team brought home the Made in MKE award for Best Digital Display from the 414Digital Showcase. 

Jason James and Brian Brinkman accepted the award in recognition of their work on the Community Impact Report completed for Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin (SEW) and Goodwill Chicago.

Goodwill SEW approached Stream Creative about redesigning their annual Impact Report. The challenge with the project was to find a way to make the data-heavy report more interactive and engaging to draw the viewer in and share all the great things Goodwill SEW and Chicago are doing in their communities.

Stream Creative team members Brian Brinkman, Jason James and Jon McLaren designed and developed a microsite that leveraged video and interactive HTML5 elements to bring Goodwill's impact stories and data to life.

"Reading annual reports can often be boring. Our goal was to present the information in a way that was both fun and informative.”

In addition to the microsite, a companion print piece was designed to be mailed to community leaders and donors. The print piece was designed to show a portion of the data available on the microsite (to save on printing costs), and encourage the viewer to visit the microsite to learn more.  A horizontal reverse z-fold layout was chosen to break up the data into natural sections and to encourage displaying the piece as a poster.
