Designing with Photography

Update – February 2018

The Right Photo for the Right Project

Canadian Parliament photos by Michel Loiselle

Considering we’re all designing some type of communication like newsletters, communiqués, reports, presentations, blogs etc., read an idea that may help you choose the right photo for your Canadian document. A business project could go like this: We need an image that speaks loud but professionally. It should accommodate a title and other smaller text. And finally, it must portray Canada in a positive light.

The image above, Political Glow fits the bill as it’s very striking and has room for title and text. Also, anyone, anywhere in Canada will relate to the architecture and sense of pride, making it ideal. I’ve added the PARLIAMENT – PART OF OUR HERITAGE title to show how text and photo work well together. The landscape orientation is ideal for PowerPoint presentations. Don’t forget to use color to emphasize your point. Here, the IAM ART gold color is perfect as it’s matched to the building. The Parliament photo collection also includes a “Portrait” version of the image for those who are creating letter-size portrait formats.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about photos for reports and encourage you to put it to use. Have a look at the 250+ collection of Canadian Parliament photos. Many of the pictures are ideal for Canadian documentation. Images start at $12 and can be downloaded any time. Extended and multi user licensing is available for sharing images directly on your network with business colleagues.

Browse the collection for ideas of images that are ready for publishing.

Thank you for reading and have a great evening.
