International Institute of Minnesota

2017 Annual Report

About This Project

The International Institute of Minnesota needed a bright and bold website for their annual report and an updated style for their data visualizations.

Data Visualizations

The International Institute of Minnesota (IIMN) needed a modern refresh of their information graphics. We worked together to figure out which data would have the most meaning to leadership and donors, and how to best show that information at a glance. We developed a color story that fit within their branding guidelines and supported other visual elements included in the report. The graphics had to look sharp both online and in print.


IIMN wanted to create a version of their annual report on the web to expand their reach to more supporters and reduce printing costs. To save time and expense of creating the report in their current website, we built a Squarespace site on a subdomain. With Squarespace, the IIMN team could easily and instantly edit copy based on feedback from leadership while I focused my efforts on designing individual pages.

The final result was beautiful and enthusiastically received by IIMN leadership, staff, donors and other nonprofits!

Welcoming All to Minnesota

From arriving to thriving, IIMN has been helping immigrants and refugees settle in Minnesota for almost 100 years. Their annual report includes some incredible stories about New Americans achieving self-sufficiency and full membership in American life.
