The concept behind annual report creation is simple —you share metrics and tell the story of your business or company’s operations for the past year. Through artistic design, inventive layouts, and compelling storytelling, annual reports can communicate a company’s achievements, challenges, and goals. Annual reports are a chance not only to educate but to build excitement and meaning around a brand, and exciting web design possibilities in recent years, they can now be transformed into showpieces of content connecting brands to their community and stakeholders.
The digital design of annual reports transforms for greater reach, accessibility and interactivity, which contributes significantly to an enhanced brand experience. Our publication design experience includes developing various annual reports for organisations in the public and private sectors, including Special Economic Zones (SEZs), Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), State-owned Enterprises (SOEs), Automotive, and Provincial and Municipal Development Agencies for print and digital formats. These include:
We worked with Coega Development Corporation (CDC) to develop various large format publications, including several annual reports.
We completed high-end annual reports for other government parastatals in South Africa, such as the Eastern Cape Development Corporation (ECDC).
The University of Mpumalanga (UMP) is one of the youngest universities in South Africa. Since 2016 we have developed the institution’s annual reports, positioning the University as a world-class African University responsive to its immediate environment.
We were tasked with developing the Automotive Industry Development Corporation (AIDC) ‘s annual report, encompassing this publication’s content development, editing, design, and layout.
For the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) annual report, various graphical and visual elements that speak to the Nelson Mandela Metropolis’ environmental aesthetic were used as a great visual representation that enhances the content of this report. A digital version of the publication was developed for easy access and distribution.
