The Story of the Children's Bureau (
An e-brochure and a printed version for the centennial anniversary of the Children's Bureau
Children's Bureau has been a true hero of less fortunate American childern for the last 100 years. On its centennial anniversary, I proposed to build this concept on then-and-now (19012 and 2012) and the client loved it. So I came up with a vintage background, faded warm colors for then in contrast to light blues for now and future to tell every story in the past and present (orange-brown and blue tabs: Live link above). 
How do you tell 100 years of history in 12 screen shots?
We worked closely with the Library of Congress to pull out photos with forgotten stories, ­­­­making this visually engaging and with hyperlinks to more resources.
The intro page sets the theme for then and now. It is followed by five chapters each consisting of a then and now page.
Popup screens for those who want to learn more, while most of us want to see the whole century at a glance.

and a dowloandable print version. In fact, we started with the print version.
It always helps to see the full content first.
