Spin350’s Role in the Project

PS_PP_1Pure Strategies approached Spin350 in search of a creative agency that could take their content and turn it into a strategically designed, aesthetically appealing piece. We took their client supplied content and created an information architecture that would translate into a multipage layout report. The Path to Product Sustainability is based on quantitative surveys of 100 global consumer product companies involved in product sustainability and qualitative interviews with heads, directors, and managers of sustainability at leading companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Timberland, Seagate, RB, and Henkel.

Graphic Design and Printing


Spin350’s Senior Designers designed this report in a 10″x10″ layout that was 12-pages saddle-stitched. We worked closely with Pure Strategies to ensure that the content and infographics properly communicated the messaging that they wanted. The infographics aligned with the data that was being discussed and were found on most of the pages. We used big colors and strong typography to compliment the data heavy report. This method was implemented as one way to make the content flow smoother and be more digestible by the reader.

PS_PP_6It was also very  important to Pure Strategies that the printed version of this report utilized green sustainable printing techniques and materials. The paper stock that we chose is FSC Certified 100%
post-consumer fibre, EcoLogo and processed chlorine free. It is accredited and manufactured using biogas energy. The cover stock was 80lb cover satin Rolland Enviro100 Print. The interior pages were done on 80lb text satin Rolland Enviro100 Print.

More about Pure Strategie’s research methodology: Verdantix, an experienced market research firm, fielded the quantitative survey on behalf of Pure Strategies in Fall 2013. Pure Strategies conducted the qualitative interviews in February 2014.
