Annual Report & Publication Design Brisbane

Your annual report is a valuable marketing tool that highlights your success, visually communicates your brand and future goals. It doesn’t just inform your stakeholders — it’s an integral component of your marketing communications.

You know that your annual report must meet all statutory and regulatory requirements. But it can do so much more for your business!

So make sure it incorporates clear, concise, straightforward information through engaging infographics, clear typography and a logical hierarchy of information.

Ignition Creative has created reports and corporate communications for:

  • government departments, e.g. Queensland Department of Premier and Cabinet and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services
  • not-for-profit organisations, e.g. Meals on Wheels, Centacare
  • private industry, e.g. Verbrec, Encompass Mining
  • education, both private and public schools, e.g. education, tertiary, e.g. University of Queensland’s Young Achievers Program Annual Update
  • financial organisations, e.g. Financial Horizons, Pivotal Partners
  • retail, e.g. Savills, Retail First, Muscle Milk
  • small businesses around Queensland and Australia

  • narrative text, graphics, and photos
  • management’s discussion and analysis
  • financial statements including the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement

While your brand will inform the backbone of the report, we will work with you to develop your annual report theme. We’ll look at your highlights for the year in review and where your organisation is heading. We’ll work with you to define your theme, tone and personality.

Revision and Proofing

Naturally, you’ll need to invite, share and receive feedback from your internal stakeholders before giving us your final feedback.

Ignition Creative’s online digital proofing system is a collaborative platform with discussion tools, plus simple, easy-to-use mark-up tools and a facility for proof-version comparison.

Once you’re completely happy, we can manage the details of printing your annual report for you.
This can include sourcing and incorporating speciality stocks, plus embellishments such as foiling, embossing and die-cutting.
