The Essence Of Compelling Annual Reports and Financial Presentations

Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 15.00.53The production of annual reports and financial presentations is a key specialism of Bazzoo. a Nottinghamshire based award winning brand and interactive agency.

Established over 12 years ago, we have worked on assignments in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

The essence of producing compelling reports that resonate with your stakeholders and win new advocates is to ensure that they are well-designed, easy to navigate and presented in the right format.

Annual reports are an effective way to present company or organisational milestones from the previous year, as well as highlight your  organisation’s culture.

Giving your report a theme, together with the judicious use of infographics and photography has an important part to play, enabling  often-complex or highly technical information to be presented in an easily understood and digestible format.Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 14.54.20

The structure of the document is also key, with strong headline copy, concise content structure and high quality print in order to engage audiences.

Bazzoo has worked with many organisations in the not-for-profit , public and private sectors on printed materials, exhibition display and web-based presentations.

Our most recent project has been the design and print of Newark CVS Annual report.Screen Shot 2017-01-31 at 15.05.46
