One of my favourite projects so far this year has been the Annual Report, which I put together in preparation for the church’s Annual Dinner at the end of January. The biggest job was chasing down everyone for their report. The second biggest was manually typing in each the figure for the financial report. Phew. But once that was finished, I got to play around with spacing, colours and fonts. I chose to group each section under one of ABC’s brand colours for easier reading. I also added little coloured tabs in the top corners so that readers knew where in the document they were and how each report related to the whole.
I got a lot of comments and compliments for this piece once it was printed and distributed–the best of which was, “I actually read all the reports this year!” That was exactly what I wanted to hear.
