Annual report design has changed
Traditional annual report design may have evolved, but a yearly communication to shareholders, stakeholders and your people is still invaluable. Whether it is delivered in print, online or in person, annual reports, reviews, sustainability reports and strategic plans still offer a clear opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the past year, and map out the strategy for the next. If you’re a charity, annual reports are a critical tool to demonstrate your efficiency and effectiveness, build support and raise funds.
From strategy, messaging and theming; design concept and layout development; typesetting; final artwork; photography; copywriting and print management or digital development, Wills has the experience to ensure that your annual report is captivating, delivered on strategy and to deadline.

Sydney designers with national experience
The principals of Wills Brand Design have been producing engaging annual report design for over 20 years for companies such as Barangaroo, Westpac, IAG, NRMA, Goodman Fielder, Royal Flying Doctor Service, NSW Treasury Corporation and The Smith Family. Wills produces investor brand communications including annual reports every year for some of Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisations and corporate entities. Several of our annual reports have been awarded medals at the Australasian Reporting Awards.
A flexible approach
We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to annual report design. We are flexible, can help with planning and report structure and are able to work with report content that is delivered to us in stages or in one ‘batch’. We take an integrated marketing approach to annual report design, helping you deliver not just a single document but a compelling suite of investor communications.
Wills offers a high-end print production service, with artwork of any complexity being produced to supplier requirements. We can accommodate your print budget and quantity requirements, producing documents that are suitable for short-run digital printing or large-run offset printing. We are happy to work with your preferred print suppliers or manage the entire annual report design and production process from quoting and supplier selection to press checking and final distribution.
For organisations now looking to expand their investor readership by offering both printed and online reports (or completely replace their printed reports), we offer a range of digital reporting solutions including WordPress microsites, interactive PFS and e-publications.

AGM board presentations
Wills works with your CEO’s script to build a Board presentation based on your annual report design that conveys key highlights and data results with impact and clarity. Animation and motion graphics can be used as much or as little as required, depending on the preference of the audience.
To share highlights or achievements from the year and connect with stakeholders and staff, we can deliver integrated digital campaigns incorporating motion graphics, eDM campaigns and social media graphics.
