Your organisation’s annual report is an anticipated event and an opportunity to connect with shareholders, industry and staff. Another Colour is a design studio that can help you go beyond regulatory obligations, with original and impactful design, so you can capitalise on your reporting investment.
Annual reports delivering beyond the bottom line
Well-designed financials pages build trust with your audience by demonstrating transparency. But along with the necessary compliance reporting, an annual report can cover much more than profit margins. Celebrate successes and company culture. Announce new appointments. Demonstrate corporate values with authentic stories well suited to a long-form format.
Your annual report project is an exciting opportunity for us to show you what we do best — bringing words to life with compelling visual storytelling, meaningful infographics and our collaborative approach. With over 20 years’ experience working on corporate reports, Another Colour’s portfolio is dominated with high-quality reports for an array of sectors, including government, finance and technology.

Another Colour’s work elevated our Annual Report, helping us attract attention from key stakeholders and communicate effectively and creatively the impact of our work. Engagement with the report was very strong, and we received excellent feedback from our executive team and board of directors.
Our latest annual reports
Lifeline has embraced new ways to support Australians through text and chat. Their evolution required a creative direction that would recognise their success. We developed a new illustration style for their, 2022 Annual Report, carrying their story into the next chapter of offering support.
AMPC (Australian Meat Processor Corporation) is a research organisation, working towards being carbon neutral by 2030, and halving human product handling by using advancements in robotics. For the 2022 Annual Report, we art directed a photoshoot of stakeholders interacting with cutting-edge innovations.
Global Infrastructure Hub
Global Infrastructure Hub, formed by the G20, advances the delivery of sustainable, resilient, and inclusive infrastructure. Inspired by the Venn Diagram of Sustainability, the 2022 Annual Report sees balancing circles to represent sustainable infrastructure.
Innovation and Productivity Council
The Innovation and Productivity Council’s 2022 Annual Report adopts NSW Government’s refreshed visual identity system. Using abstract depictions of data visualisations reflect the council’s future-facing and thought-provoking work.
Our approach to annual reports
A meeting to kick off the project will commence our research phase. By 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 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.
Let us be your guide in the digital age
Expanding reach using digital platforms becomes a vital part of today’s annual reports. Adding interactivity to your digital report will enhance the user experience. We will add interactive links to PDFs, or can even develop a full responsive website, complete with animated infographics and video explainers. We are experts in accessibility and can ensure your commitment to be WCAG 2.0 compliant.
Check out our portfolio, or contact us to discuss your reporting project. We’ll happily prepare a comprehensive cost estimate and present some relevant case studies that showcase how the design thinking we apply to flagship reports has brought meaningful change for our clients. We look forward to hearing from you.
