WM Annual Report

This annual report presents the Western Muslim Initiative (WMI) in a contemporary fusion style to make it accessible for the general public in North America. WMI is a Calgary based registered not-for-profit that provides a forum that explores, expresses, and contributes positively towards Western Muslim culture.

The core of Islamic design is Arabic calligraphy and Islamic geometric patterns. Graphic elements of streamlined Arabic typography, in combination with textured surfaces and bold colours, appear throughout the report. The traditional geometric patterns were first broken down into simple shapes representing the values and diversity of the community and then reassembled to create striking linear patterns.

An interactive component was added to the report through perforated shapes that the user can pop out and utilize to create their own patterns – symbolizing their involvement in building this diverse community.
