At Diablo we understand that Reporting documents have far more complex roles to fill than simply formatting financial data. To some a Report and Accounts document represents the company's seminal annual release and if managed correctly will yield financial literature that works on multiple levels.
The release of any document requires commitment and associated investment. We therefore encourage our clients to evaluate available content at time of production to make the most effective use of committing to print. The front end of an Annual Report forms a powerful tool in your marketing arsenal. Typically it can function as a high end profile to visually support the buoyancy of the Accounts, document the achievements of core business activities or showcase recent projects of stature. Internally it can reduce divisions by communicating direction or changes at board level while also acknowledging key staff achievements.
We understand the disciplines and demands of a corporate environment and the urgency that surrounds a financial release. Our design experience at this level and closely forged links with a select group of specialist printers affords us all the components to deliver high end and positioning financial literature. We will work in sympathy with your current Brand rulings ensuring that your Report document is consistent and sits comfortably within your current family of literature.
Our strength and appeal to both new and retained clients over competitors is our ability to manage the entire process. You can rest assured that from initial concept development the content collation and construction, print production and mail management will all be handled seamlessly. This doesn't however mean you will be dealing with faceless automatons. We like to meet our clients and understand their objectives, we still believe in good old fashioned communication throughout project development and we respect real-world budgets and scheduling. Our team will liaise closely with your appointed staff and will inform and advise at all stages of items that may impact on the project overall.
We would always recommend and assist in carefully evaluating the quality and consistency of any available photographic content prior to designing a financial or reporting document.
Photography contains integral elements that subtlety assist in delivering the communication of the document; it can also occupy a large percentage of the design content. It is therefore important the treatment of photography is respected and recognised as a component of the design and budgeted for from the outset. Investment in quality photography will provide future benefits and cost saving. Generating an image library will create a range of material that will form and extension of the Company Brand that can be retained and applied within any design environment.
Diablo can help source material or arrange specific staged photography for you. We have access to a vast array of photographic stock libraries that can locate images that will provide strength and support current design themes while accommodating your project budget. In managing the photographic content we can also apply our discretion over selections best suited to the design layout, format and shots of optimum size and resolution. Thus saving you valuable time resourcing material and in isolation to rest of the Report design.
Financial literature stock material and additional print finishing are often overlooked or considered unnecessary further expenditure. The quality of print stock and finishing plays an important role in establishing a parallel of quality to be found within the Company and associated services.
The use of budget print materials and minimal finishing can communicate financial uncertainty and lack of future commitment. It may also undermine or confuse the intended stability or direction reflected within the Report.
Diablo will work with you in sourcing the right stock material and finishing for your individual document requirements. We can supply sample areas on stock for comparison, weight and feel. We will also advise you during project development on the performance or restrictions of specific materials.
