What is Houston First Booklet
Print Design and Layout by LD Forrest

This book needed to clearly explain what Houston First is, identify the facilities they manage today and paint a picture of the long-term projects they have going on all around Houston. This 44-page book required detailed planning to combine such a wide array of information with a cohesive design that was interesting – after all, no one wants a book detailing dreams and ambitions to be boring. A clean and modern styling for both the images and the typography was the result. Giving the book a futuristic quality that pairs well with the fact that a good portion of this book is looking ahead on what Houston will be in the decades ahead. The book was well received and serves as an excellent support piece for the executive staff at Houston First. The information pertinent to new city officials is clearly presented and Houston First’s vision of the city’s future is echoed in the colorful, energetic design of the spreads.
