Designing your annual report so smoothly, that they aren't a pain in the butt. 

We get it. Annual Reports can be frustrating. From the sheer bulk of information, to the design requirements, to it highlighting the biggest parts of your work, none of that is easy. That's why we are here to help.

Why Annual Reports are so hard

Here's why you're cracking your head about your Annual Report.

Project management

How do you keep things on time, on target, and on scope? Especially with regulatory authorities possibly scrutinising your annual report? This is where you need agencies that are comfortable working under pressure.

The bulk of information

We know. It's crazy to compile everything you've done in a year, in a single document. You have to think what you have to include, remove, and possibly risk offending some colleagues whose stuff you've removed.

What to write 

Let's not get started about what you're supposed to write.

An annual report can feel like writing a book, with the hundreds of pages resulting in you stuck, at what you should actually say in those pages given.

How to Do your own Annual Report easier

Yes, we know. You don't always have the luxury of asking someone else to do it.  

1. Know what you can do

The annual report comprises 3 parts - conceptualising, writing, and designing. Conceptualising is coming up with the theme. Writing, is summarising and putting together all the information. Design, is putting a fancy skin on it. What can you do on your own? 

2. Break it down

If you're on a tight budget, the easiest way is to see what you can do, and outsource the rest. There are some parts like design that will need a professional to lay it out in Adobe InDesign, and Photoshop. Outsource those parts so you can save on your costs, and do what you can on your own.

3. Keep track of timelines

Annual reports are sometimes regulatory requirements, and you need them out by a certain timeline so you don't get fined by the regulators. You can keep track with a Kanban board on Notion, so that everyone is on the same page.

4. Get a team

This is a big project. Don't kid yourself thinking that you can do it on your own. If you try, you will fail, really badly. We don't want that to happen for you. Ask someone to help you along. This is by far the easiest way forward.

That's why we decided to make it clean and simple.

We've introduced a way to managing your annual report that makes you tear out your hair less, and help you to finish it faster.

What past clients say 

Daryl Omerod

Former CEO, University of Nottingham's Students Union

I am confident that John's future clients would find his passion, wisdom and courage to raise difficult questions helpful.

Nadia Halim

Teacher, MINDS Woodlands Garden School

John and his team's reliability, and ability to attend to our every need was really helpful in moving us from idea to printing of our Annual Report in 2 months, compared to the usual 4 months.

How we work

Here's why we are able to deliver reliably, and more smoothly than others.

1. First Alignment

Congrats! You'd like to be our client. We meet you within 3 days face to face, to understand your needs. We interview key stakeholders and take over the collateral so that we can start building a moodboard for you. 

2. Moodboard Aligned

Using a moodboard, we gather inspiration from different sources to mock-up what it is you want. We then arrange a meeting and hear your feedback so that we can get alignment on the eventual design. 

3. Weekly Meetings

We schedule weekly meetings as we know that email ping-pongs to lock down meeting dates can often be frustrating! During these meetings, we have a working agenda that moves meetings effectively.

4. Kanban Managed

We use Notion, a Kanban board to lay out all the tasks, and manage them in one central location. It helps you, and our team to be clear about what the status of each task is.

5. Draft Out

Within the timelines you give us, we give you the drafts that you can see and feel and touch, so that we can hear your feedback and improve on the designs that you have asked for.

6. Project Complete

After every project finishes, we throw a party! Because you deserve it :) We know that annual reports can be a culmination of the highlights of the year, and we want to celebrate that with you.

Here's a case study

MINDS, a charity serving those with special needs, was making their first ever annual yearbook. There was also a tight timeline of 2 months, compared to the usual 4 months most organisations take to finish a project of this complexity. 

how to choose the best annual report design agency singapore

We delivered reliably, on time, and on scope.

To keep the project on track, we used a Kanban board to track the different tasks and to help the teachers to be aware of what tasks were still outstanding. 

To prevent overwhelm, we scheduled regular meetings to share what was done well, and what else could be improved.

But of course, why choose us over the thousands of other agencies?

An agency you can rely on

We are an agency that works. It 'just works'. A little like Apple. Plug and play. No fuss, no nonsense, no extra tinkering. Work with us, and it will be simple and easy because of how we structure the whole process, and how experienced we are.

We simplify the complex work

Writers structure complex ideas and concepts, and make them simple and easy to understand. We know that the sheer amount of information to work through can be difficult, and that's why we have great writers who can work with you on them.

Fast in getting your work done

We are a small team. That means that we attend to your queries fast, and effectively. There's no multiple layers of approval we need to get, just to get something done.

Stop struggling with your Annual Report.

It really doesn't have to be that difficult.
