Charlotte Area Biking Walking Map - Connection GroupBrochures… Illustrations… Design…
Oh my!…

Connection Group was recently contracted by the Barry Eaton District Health Department to assist them in educating the public on routes throughout the Charlotte area for safe biking and walking. This project is an initiative to get people moving and increasing health and wellness in our community.

We created the brochure layout and also recommended design and printing of full color posters to be posted by area retailers and organizations  to build awareness of the routes for their customers and encourage employees to get bike or walk into work.

We love projects where we can incorporate a variety of skills and this one is a great example. Planning the placement of the information, choosing the colors and creating the illustrations while making sure all phases were completed in the time frame agreed including printing and delivery allow us to ‘show our stuff’ and ease the burden for our client. It is our pleasure to bring these types of communication to the community in the clearest most attractive format. Download the map from the BEDHD website.
