I designed this Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo 2018 Year-End Report for the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, a Puebloan Native American tribal entity located in the Ysleta section of El Paso, Texas. With a color palette of terracotta and dark turquoise, the report features artwork created by artists from the Tigua Indian Cultural Center and the Eagle's Path Cultural Gift Shop.
These artists' medium is usually pottery, however, under my art direction, to better complement the report format, they used watercolor paper while staying true to the tribe's traditional motifs and aesthetics. The spiral-bound report was expertly printed and assembled by Tovar Printing of El Paso, Texas with a die cut and glossy UV varnish on the cover. Divider tabs along the side assign visual pattern, rather than text, to each of the report's seven sections.
The result is a report that informs its intended audience beautifully—balancing negative space with bold Pueblo symbols and signs such a flowers, feathers, and bear claws that draw from Tigua history and culture. It was a true honor to work with such striking visuals on this project.
