The Annual Report Design Process
Empire will design your annual report to tell the story of the mission, vision and accomplishments of your company in a professional style that is consistent with your identity. First we will meet with you to discuss your needs, goals and expectations, and determine the timeline and budget for your annual report project. We will also determine the final output, print or electronic, of your annual report. Once the project has begun, we will create an outline of the annual report and coordinate the collection of materials. If needed, we can schedule a photo shoot of your products and facilities to include in the annual report. Our professional writers can also assist with the content development and editing of text, as required. After all the content and images have been collected, our experienced graphic design team will begin the concept and design stage. You will be provided with a sample mock-up of the theme. Once the theme has been approved, the graphic designers will create the layout for each page, input the text and images, create graphs, charts and maps as required.
Annual Report Printing and Publishing
Once your annual report has been edited, proofed and approved, we will print it with one of our trusted printers that best fits the needs of your project. We will also provide you with a PDF file of your final annual report, and upload it to your website if desired. We can also create interactive Flash movies with turning pages, PowerPoint presentations that highlight the key elements of the annual report for a presentation, or video productions.
