UCD – Design Services

What Did the Client Need?

Flourishing for over 160 years University College Dublin (UCD) is a research-intensive university with purpose, drive and ambition. For over 20 years, AKGraphics have worked alongside UCD with a range of their internal departments. We have produced a variety of designs for print, display and digital throughout our longstanding relationship. This includes everything from infographic posters, reports, email campaigns and much more.

The Solution

We have designed successful and visually engaging annual reports for UCD for several years. We have designed visual reports that condense all of the provided information into reports that portray a snapshot of the strengths of UCD. Resulting in a coherent and comprehensive report that was also visually appealing. Alongside annual reports, we have also designed UCD’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Report. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, printed report distribution can be limited. Therefore, their most recent EDI report was designed solely with digital in mind. We designed a flipbook brochure, which allows readers to easily read and engage with the report online. You can check it out at the link below;

We have also designed and developed UCD’s ‘Green Campus’ email campaign, which included creation of the logo, campaign messaging and visuals. Each month we design an email newsletter with infographics and supporting social media visuals. These emails are targeted primarily at students, so the information is concise, attention grabbing and visually engaging.

Annual reports can have a reputation for being quite dull and laborious to read but with our creativity we can produce an interesting report that engages your audience. We utilise white space while designing, therefore making it easier for even the busy reader to view the important sections quickly.

We created an A2 poster infographic for UCD to summarise their Human Resources report in a way that is interesting and easy to digest. A lot of the content was in numerical values, this allowed us to design creative and informative infographics, pie charts and bar graphs to communicate the data in a quick and easy manner.

The Result

During our working partnership with UCD over the years we have built robust relationships with strong communication channels. From annual reports and monthly email campaigns to posters, banners, certificates and promotional items, there is consistency and innovation in all design elements we create for UCD which stems from a true understanding of their requirements as an organisation and a brand.

What Does the Client Think?

“I have worked with Anne for nearly 15 years while working for a range of organisations. She has always produced work on time, to specification, and on budget and her creative flair has delivered the results required. In my experience Anne goes the extra mile to ensure client satisfaction.”

Mark Simpson, Internal Communications Manager at UCD

“We in the UCD EDI unit have worked with Anne and the team at AKGraphics on designing our annual EDI report. This was the first time we went with an online report so we wanted something special and interactive, but it also needed to be accessible. AKGraphics did an incredible job on our online report. They were easy to work with, had great ideas and were highly professional. We would highly recommend them and can’t wait to work with them again in the future.”
