Project Description

The 2016 Official Visitors Guide is the fourth publication design ocreations has completed for Visit Pittsburgh.

ocreations has been working with Visit Pittsburgh for the last four years to complete their annual Visitors Guide. For this year’s publication design, Visit Pittsburgh wanted to focus on celebrating Pittsburgh’s bicentennial. This guidance opened a window of opportunity for ocreations to design a unique publication that not only captured the particular theme Visit Pittsburgh wanted for the 2016 Guide, but also still met their yearly goal of being a “one-stop shop” for visitors planning a trip to Pittsburgh.

By paying homage to Pittsburgh’s past and celebrating its present, our design contrasted the old with the new, vintage with modern, and wrapped it all into a cohesive, 130-page publication. Unconventional design features like a die cut cover and pull-out timeline make the 2016 Official Visitors Guide really stand out from the start.

Just as Visit Pittsburgh came to us with the idea of highlighting Pittsburgh’s 200th anniversary, the basis for all quality design starts with the spark of an idea put down on paper. Print is an essential medium for presenting your company and your message in a way that not only maintains, but enhances business and your public image. Whether you have a larger publication like this Official Visitors Guide, or a smaller, one-page brochure, the creative experts at ocreations can work with you to analyze your project, goals, and company image and develop printed graphics and promotions that make an impact.
