With this company annual report design we helped launch our client’s new brand vision, values and strategic framework to customers and investors.

Background

Dee Valley Water supplies drinking water to domestic and business customers across North East Wales and North West Cheshire, and the report design had to focus on this year’s theme – vulnerable customers.company annual report design-Dee Valley-07

Challenge

Soon after our client’s rebrand, we were tasked with producing an engaging company annual report design. As one of the first high profile pieces to showcase their new brand, the report had to help launch the company’s updated vision, values and strategic framework.

Following on from the annual report we created for them a year before, the new company annual report design would be a vital communication tool for key stakeholders.

Solution

Our report design strikes a balance between 108 pages of data-rich content with engaging imagery and copy that bring human impact to the surface.company annual report designcompany annual report design-Dee Valley-02company annual report design

To keep readers interested, we introduced different treatments for the wide range of imagery: hero images are shown in full colour, with smaller ones using duo tone to avoid distraction from the content around them.company annual report designcompany annual report design

This company annual report design represents the first experience of the new brand for many of the audience. It includes new colourways and a new logo design, serving as a continuation of the previous year’s efforts to refresh the company image and communicate their ethos.company annual report design

We added graphic elements such as curved lines that keep the content dynamic and help the reader with the flow of information by adding emphasis and focus. Company annual report designcompany annual report design-Dee Valley-06-NEW

We also managed the fulfilment on behalf of our client, mailing out to key stakeholders and shareholders in the UK and abroad. We produced online versions for our client’s website, as well as an abridged version of the report for internal use.company annual report design

The uncoated stock we chose ties in with Dee Valley Water’s environmental stance. It’s mindful of design and budget constraints, as well as audience expectations. We also ensured we didn’t use heavy stock, adding to the user experience, as well as keeping printing and mailing costs down.
