[link to his report]

An appreciation by Ben Wildeboer:

Simon Job knows what he’s doing. First he grabs my attention by plastering his first slide with pictures of his adorable new baby and then goes on to use his four slides to tell a compelling story of his new life with his new daughter. I can sense the major changes his life has undergone after the birth of his first child through the information contained in his annual report- the photo sharing with family & friends, the frequent doctor visits, new sounds in his house, and the unenviable task of changing all those “nappies.” Print out that Nappies slide and post it in every sex ed. classroom and it’d probably do more to prevent teen pregnancy than any method currently in use. The fusion of good, simple design around a coherent storyline made Simon Job’s annual report stick out in my mind above all the rest. Of course, it could just be those adorable baby pictures.

    I LOVED the nappy slide. I think it would need smell-o-vision from the pull ups of a reluctant potty-training 4 year old to really do the job in a teen sex ed class. Still Ben’s points about the story that was told is spot on.

    Wow, thanks! Certainly didn’t expect this. Congrats to Frieder and Ben. I really enjoyed looking at all the entries.
