I've designed the annual report for the wonderful people at Centre for Disability Studies since the early 2000s. When I was engaged to do the job initially the brief was to modernise the look and feel of the report. Budget was a real issue and for several years we did the whole job in two process colours. Careful use of white space and those two colours taking specific roles in the document still made the annual report look clean and fresh.
The 2009 report was the first we did in full colour and it looks one hundred per cent better again. Those two colours - the red and the blue - are still very much in evidence and apart from full colour photos and black body copy they are the only colours used in the document, retaining a clear link with the organisation's corporate colours and previous reports.
