Bringing the Past to Life

The Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA) was established in 1938 to provide affordable housing for Akron, Ohio and surrounding communities. To celebrate and commemorate their 80th year of service, we were asked to design a calendar incorporating a vast array of historical documents and photographs while also keeping an eye on the future.
