General Accounting Office, Washington, D.C.

As part of the design team of Robert Gersin Associates in New York, I managed the design and production of a new graphics standards manual for the US General Accounting Office. In cooperation with the Government Printing Office, the manual enabled the agency to dramatically reduce paper waste and establish a new coherent graphic system. Tasks included the evaluation of hundreds of government publications and the design of new formats for books, brochures, and official reports.
