Effective Design Strategy for your Reports
Having worked closely with public and private organisations, AKGraphics recognise the importance of learning from our clients and getting to know their businesses.
When clients bring us in on a report design job at the very beginning we can help identity opportunities for improvement.
Working across all media AKGraphics help our clients to communicate with clarity and focus, ensuring that their message within their annual report is heard loud and clear. If you are looking for effective report design, or creative communications with a strong design strategy you need to consider AKGraphics. As you can see from the examples below AKGraphics have experience from short one page strategy design up to large annual report design. The end result of any report needs to engage your audience/stakeholders. Therefore if you want your business strategy or report to make an impact you need AKGraphics to implement this.
Key factors AKGraphics consider first in relation to an annual report/stratagy report design:
- Arrange a detailed meeting first to understand our clients business objectives, understand the business and understand your target market. Full understanding of your business will ensure good design and that gets results – which results in positive PR
- We will consider at this stage the shape and size of your printed report or strategy, bearing in mind your target audience and their requirements. Size is also a consideration in relation to postage costs and that will have an impact on the overall budget
- Your business might only require a small or large print quantity for your report, AKGraphics can accommodate both options
- Maybe no print is required you just want a downloadable PDF that works on a online platform, again that is not an issue
- We consider the key content of the report or strategy with you, and how this is going to be designed in infographics or listcles format
- Good photography might also be required and we might also have to purchase stock photography again AKGraphics can organise that for you
- Be assured your content will be treated with the strictest of confidence in AKGraphics, as we have signed many confidential agreements (NDA) on behalf of our customers over the years
- AKGraphics will make the report or strategy design coherent and memorable – this results in a very readable document
- We will utilising white space in the design, therefore making it easier for the lazy reader to view the important sections quickly
- Condensing lots of information into an infographic format, that’s standard practice on a daily basis in AKGraphics
- We make sure a design solution is created on time and within budget, AKGraphics is used to working to tight deadlines – it’s part and parcel of our business
