Context Creative was commissioned by the Ontario government to create an annual report for Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan that would primarily be viewed on the web. It was important for the piece to function well in a PDF format, as this would be the main distribution medium. In partnership with the Climate Change Secretariat, Context adopted best practices for clarity, accountability and making information accessible, demonstrating the kind of leadership and meaningful action that Ontarians expect.
Designed in a landscape format, the report adheres to computer monitor proportions for superior online viewing. A consistent hierarchy of font styles and typographic formats allows for intuitive scanning. To facilitate accurate text searches, easy-to-read fonts with recognizable Unicode were selected for the report. All graphs and charts have likewise been converted for optimal character recognition. Navigation aids, such as a clickable table of contents and bookmarks, help users quickly access desired content without having to read the document in its entirety.
