The USM Foundation Annual Report (now the Impact Report) is the organization’s showcase publication that shares the difference donors make in the lives of Southern Miss students. It includes stories about donors, scholarship recipients and campaigns, as well as the Foundation’s financial statement from the previous fiscal year.
The cover of the 2013 Impact Report featured a photo of “Lofty Return,” an impressive 22-foot sculpture on the University’s Hattiesburg campus. I worked with the graphic designer and commercial printer to bring Lofty to life using a custom-made die. The intricate details of the sculpture were embossed on the cover to form a raised three-dimensional impression that allows you to “feel the feathers.”
