City of Mansfield Water Utilities Division Magazine Design
Steve Jobs once said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
That’s what made J.O.’s partnership with the City of Mansfield Water Utilities Division such a successful one. We each love what we do — and we do it well.
The Water Division came to J.O. wanting a communication piece to celebrate Mansfield’s centennial and to share their love of water and passion for knowledge with the community. We decided on a magazine. Using a collection of stories, photographs and tidbits about the technological advances made over the last 100 years in Mansfield, J.O. created what we dubbed “The Water Book.”
Our creative team made purposeful design choices to accentuate the visual properties of water — utilizing several hues of blue and a unique watercolor design throughout the layout — all to create a visually compelling piece that communicated the history, legacy and importance of water in the Mansfield community.
