The cartography of health: making an annual report that maps ‘healthy communities’


To showcase the progress The California Endowment (TCE) has made in the last year with regards to its many initiatives, Lybba designed an interactive Annual Report in close collaboration with TCE and our filmmaking partner, Wondros.

The report combines numerical data and hard facts with narrative storytelling in the form of short films that allow visitors to explore TCE's work in neighborhoods, schools, and prevention. A playful, interactive map composed of simple shapes, reminiscent of paper cut-outs, loosely represents one of TCE's 14 communities, which are part of a 10-year comprehensive initiative—Building Healthy Communities.

The map invites visitors to explore each of the three big campaigns—Schools, Neighborhoods, and Prevention—as well as the primary drivers behind each of the campaigns. Layers of information unfold as visitors discover stories from children, adults, partners, and community leaders who are all part of the journey to better health.

TCE is a private, statewide foundation dedicated to expanding access to affordable healthcare in low-income neighborhoods and improving the overall health of all Californians. Their primary message—Health Happens Here—drives the work they do in communities across California. Health happens in schools, neighborhoods, and with prevention.

Within each of these three areas, TCE is changing the way people think about health: from helping thousands of uninsured children and adults find affordable healthcare coverage to building a micro-enterprise fund to support youth entrepreneurs.
