It is that time of year for companies and corporations, Annual Report season. This is not a real season but it is an important time for many companies to share the success of the previous year. At DOME, we have had many opportunities to design annual reports for companies, non-profit organizations and associations. You can say that we love to design annual reports. Its a great opportunity to run with a suggested topic and design a great layout with the theme and company brand in mind.
The purpose of this blog to show some of our favorite design concepts, that kept the company brand in mind and really expressed the theme at hand, from around the internet. Doing a basic Google search will allow you to view all sorts of designs, some creative and unique and some very similar in style. The following design, to me, are fantastic use of color, concept and creativity to really sell the message.
U-HAUL’s 2010 Annual Report created by Jacob Gilbreath
This has to be one of my favorite annual report designs. This design just uses the company branding and theme really well. Using the design of a packing box and layering elements through out the piece, creates a sense of everything U-HAUL has to offer. Check out the link for more detailed look.
Rosneft’s 2011 Annual Report created by VolgaVolga
I love the use of color and the creativity of using hand illustrated elements to convey the message from the companies identity.
Google’s 2014 Annual Report
I love the sharp edges in the design, along with the use of Google’s color palette. Very modern and clean design.
Wates Group 2010 Annual Report Design
I love the use of whitespace, the splash of color with the grayscale images. Very nicely designed.
