Designing An Annual Report is Like Designing A Good Website

29 October 2018

2 mins read

Annual reports design is challenging, but with a little help, you might be able to generate one that boosts your company’s branding and marketing efforts.

One way to design a top annual report is to treat it like designing a website.

So here are some useful guidelines:

Good User Experience

An often overlooked factor for annual reports, the user experience while reading your report is extremely important.

Much like a website, the design of the entire experience from the start to end matters. This includes the loading speed. If you have a lot of visual elements, optimising their sizes to decrease loading time will be important for the overall experience.

Subsequently, the visual experience and data presentation must also be pleasing to the eye, which brings us to our next point…

Visually Pleasing

Aesthetics obviously play an important role in a great annual report design. That applies to both websites and annual reports.

Your colours should not clash or be overly striking, while the visual elements should attract the users’ attention to focus on the right portions. Present your chunky data in pleasant designs, icons and graphs to create a simpler read.

Simple is Good

It is important to be creative and push boundaries of design. However, there’s a difference between a creative design and a messy one. A simple and readable website is much better than a messy one filled with functions.

Similarly, for annual reports, a readable and clean design triumphs a messy and gimmicky one. Hence, keep your annual report designs coherent and legible so that all your users are able to actually read and comprehend it.

Copywriting

Aesthetics is only one part of the design – the copywriting should accentuate your designs as well.

Just like a website, the copywriting for the content, chapters and headers should compliment the design. The word choice and sentence structure should be easy to read, impactful and memorable.

Creative and strategic copywriting may not be for everyone, but if you are facing troubles or would like to enhance your copywriting, find someone who can provide a holistic design service.

Designing an annual report can be accomplished by thinking about it as designing a website. By planning and following similar thought processes and focusing on the key points, you should have an annual report out in no time.

Still unsure on how to go about designing your annual report? Approach an experienced design team to get the job done.

5 Ways To Make Your Brand Crazy, Rich & Asian Like In The Movies

Think the box-office Crazy Rich Asians is sending the world into a frenzy? Well, good branding can, too! When the movie hit the shores of US, it smashed records for romantic-comedies in recent times. By the time Crazy Rich Asians premiered in Singapore, it was already generating hype for its unique setting and cast. One thing’s for sure, we all can agree that Newton Food Centre does not have the best satay in Singapore.

Based on a book written by Kevin Kwan, it depicts the story of a group of rich Asians in the setting of a grand wedding with dramatic twists and turns.

Crazy Rich Asians is a trailblazer in its cast and setting and received significant success in a predominantly Caucasian men industry.

But what has the success of a locally filmed movie got to do with your brand?

How Do UI And UX Design Help With Your Website Design?

User interface (UI) and user experience (UX) designs are vital elements that work hand-in-hand in creating a high-quality website design. Having good UI and UX design within your website can boost user interaction, increase customer satisfaction and draw attention to your brand.

Given that UI and UX design are closely interlinked, it can be hard to differentiate one from the other. However, it is vital to understand that they handle two different parts of the design process.

To help you incorporate them into your website design, here is a simple guide on UI and UX design.

Here’s Why You Need A Digital Annual Report NOW

For any forms of communication and aspects of businesses, it is important to look for constant ways to improve it. This set of principles apply to annual reports as well.

While there are always new ways to design an annual report, an overlooked execution is the digital annual report. A digital annual report refers to an annual report in a microsite form, not just a PDF file.

The digital annual report is not new by any standards, but it is underutilised. There seems to be an unnecessary barrier when all you need is a professional digital team capable of both design and programming.

To push for digitalisation for annual report designs, here are 4 reasons for you to think about creating a digital annual report:
