Forestry Innovation Investment is a provincial agency that promotes British Columbia’s forest practices and products around the world.

FII is a provincial crown corporation set up by the British Columbia government in 2003 to support an environmentally sustainable and prosperous forest economy in British Columbia.

Forestry Innovation Investment (FII) was pleased with the Wood Fibre Opportunities booklet I had previously designed and had us develop their next major project – a 60-page book highlighting investment in British Columbia forestry to an international audience. The book uses the first project as a starting point for design, keeping in mind the more text-heavy informative content of the book.

The book was designed in English, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. In a tight time frame, I designed, laid out, and typeset all but the Chinese books in-house. Translation teams proofed the final book layouts to ensure accuracy before printing the documents in Asia.
