Annual Reports with Impact

Your organisation’s annual report is not just a regulatory obligation but a highly anticipated event — an opportunity to engage with shareholders, industry peers and staff. At Another Colour, a leading design studio, we specialise in transforming these essential documents into compelling narratives. We go beyond mere compliance, using original and impactful design to maximise your reporting investment.

Beyond the bottom line

Well-designed financial statements build trust through transparency. However, your annual report can also celebrate company achievements, culture, and new appointments. We can showcase your corporate values with authentic, long-form storytelling.

Embarking on your annual report project with us means seeing your vision brought to life through compelling visuals, meaningful infographics, and our collaborative design process. With over two decades of experience in corporate reporting for sectors including government, finance and technology, Another Colour’s portfolio is a testament to our commitment to quality and innovation.

Our approach to annual reports

Our research phase will commence with a meeting to kick off the project. After learning about your audience, competitors and existing brand, we will work with you to develop a thorough creative brief. A project of this size requires rigorous project management and clear communication.

We understand the importance of regulatory deadlines and have established systems to manage quality assurance, budgets and approval processes. Feedback will be attained in phases, to ensure key stakeholders are informed and invested in the report’s progress. We pride ourselves on accuracy: all work is quality-checked and amendments are guaranteed.

Another Colour’s ability to listen and make informed decisions on creative direction is a joy and not something I have found very often in working with design teams. They have a superior style of engagement with clients and work hard to understand and anticipate their needs.

Our reports have received positive feedback from many key stakeholders, demonstrating the visual value Another Colour provides. I have recommended them to others and we look forward to continuing working with them.
