Showcase of Annual Report Design

Annual reports are important for presenting information to a company’s investors, so having an annual report that looks professional and presents a good image can certainly help the cause. The design of the report is, of course, secondary to the content, but still important.

In this post we’ll showcase some examples of annual report design for your own inspiration. These samples come from the Behance Network, and in most cases you can see more images from each annual report by clicking on the image and following the link to Behance.

    Great list!

    Our organisation can no longer print their annual report. Does anyone know a similar list of online annual reports?

  • Andy @ FirstFound, February 13, 2012

    I like Heinz’s – simple, effective and fits the brand.

    vectorism,
    Thanks for catching that. I just fixed the link.

  • david, February 14, 2012

    Wow; very nice. I really did not think that companies would go to these design lengths on their annual reports.

  • Rajan Arora, February 15, 2012

    Nice collection.

  • Courtney, February 19, 2012

    These are great for inspiration. I tell my clients all the time that using white space correctly speaks volumes!

  • Rob Jenkins, February 19, 2012

    Company reports are so often overlooked- thanks so much for the post. I really love Climate Works’ use of Maps to tell their company story.

    Thanks for sharing these,

    Can anyone tell me where can i get the copy of these printed reports?

    • Vandelay Website Design, March 5, 2012

      Rahil,
      To get a printed copy you would probably have to be an investor or stakeholder of one of the companies. You could search online and see if you might be able to find them somewhere.

    Heinz looks unusual for Annual Report. Interesting design collection.
