Interline Brands is a leading direct marketer
and distributor of maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) products. These products include plumbing, electrical, hardware, security hardware, HVAC and other related items.
Interline’s diverse customer base crosses
many markets, such as multi-family housing, educational, lodging and health care facilities, professional contractors, hardware stores and other distributors.
In Interline’s 2010 Annual Report we wanted
to communicate the message of the “Power of Scale“ signifying how Interline’s diverse market groups add balance to the company’s growth, earnings, and stability. In the cover design of
the book I played with descriptors that make Interline a leader in the industry and manipulated them through varying font types, font sizes,
and hues of gray. The cover has a die-cut image of the Interline's brand mark, framing in the “Power of Scale“ message. For the intro page
of the report I created images that represented Interline’s variety of brands and accent icons to represent growth.
