Not everyone enjoys the end of year process of producing the Annual Report. We do! In fact, we’ve been doing them for over 15 years. To achieve great Annual Report design requires a combination of clear financial reporting, interesting infographics, concise content structure and high-quality print.
We do all of this.
To design an effective Annual Report, there are lots of different things that need to be considered, but some of the most important are:
- The Concept – Define and present a clear story throughout your report. This gives us something to ‘hang the creative on’ and ensures your readers will engage with the report.
- Formats – It doesn’t have to be A4 and it doesn’t even have to be printed anymore. We’ll help you explore formats that will work best for your audience – from interesting formats, interactive PDFs to microsites.
- Typography – This is where the creative experience really comes in. Often, Annual Reports need to meet strict typographic guidelines (such as font-size) so it can sometimes be a balance between design and functionality.
- Infographics – A great way of conveying complex information in a bite-size way.
- Finishes – We’ll look at the huge range of potential finishes for your Annual Report – from paper stock to binding options.
- Carbon footprint – In an increasingly environmentally conscious marketplace, to assist any compliance standards you have to demonstrate your corporate social responsibility and environmental integrity, all our printers use paper which comes from FSC certified forests. All inks and laminates conform to the latest EU standards and we can also offer recycled stocks for specific projects.
