Sometimes on the conveyor belt of communications, things can seem a bit cyclical, a bit ‘samey’. As one year merges into another, the calendar of corporate events can throw up some similar requests, similar projects and a feeling of ‘haven’t we done this before?’ It can be all too easy to churn out the same old thing, new date on the front cover, and with a bit of tweaking to show that the content is fresh and relevant. Sometimes it’s a case of ‘needs must’. There might not be the time to carry out a full review of the production process and develop something scintillatingly different. But there is help at hand. Sometimes if you don’t have the time you need to fully consider a comms project, or the project would benefit from energy and enthusiasm from outside the comms office, then a call to Touch Design may be one of your better decisions.

Take the good old annual report. Loved by accountants and auditors, tolerated by most others, the annual report is the showpiece annual publication that sometimes seems to suffer from a little stage fright. It’s a ‘must do’ but sometimes the challenge of obtaining content, editing the text and gaining sign-off, getting it designed and printed, often against very tight deadlines, can turn it something of a ‘monster’. Like it or not, that monster in the cupboard comes out every 12 months, makes a big song and dance at the time, and then quietly retreats back into the cupboard from where it came. It’s probably time to turn that monster into something more manageable, achievable, and dare we say it, enjoyable?

Here at Touch we’ve been producing annual reports for all 10 years of operation. We’ve produced countless annual reports for countless clients but for each one we have offered something bespoke, some fresh thinking, original concepts, cutting edge designs and non-standard print. If the customer wants a standard A4, they can have a standard A4. If they want a special print size, with cutouts on the cover, some spot gloss highlighting, or a digital masterpiece with embedded videos, animation and podcasts then we’re here to help and deliver.

Have a look at our infographic which contains some top tips from the Touch creative team based on many years of working with clients and offering them novel solutions to annual problems. Consider how your content could work in another format such as infographics; consider how it might link in with your social media channels; consider how the content could be re-packaged for other corporate marketing materials. Does your report extol your brand values; does it demand to be picked up and read; does it resonate with readers? We can help you overcome these annual issues and ensure that 2018 shows off your corporate brand and key organisational messages like never before. We can help you celebrate the work of your dedicated staff and pitch it perfectly for your key audiences. Online and print, full report and executive summary, your next annual report no longer has to be the annual comms challenge. We’re here to help.
