Twenty-Five and Counting


Back in 1988, Hecla Mining Company was one of helveticka’s very first clients. And after 25 consecutive annual reports — the most recent winning silver ADDY awards at both the local and district levels — the relationship is as strong as ever.

Themed “Meeting the Needs of a Changing World,” the 2012 report focuses on the growing global demand for silver, whose unique characteristics make it an indispensible element in today’s emerging economies. As the largest and one of the lowest-cost primary silver producers in the United States, Hecla is, in a sense, fulfilling a universal need.

Images for the report were shot by Van Gundy Photography; helveticka was responsible for theme development, design, writing and editing, art direction, production, and project management services.
