Reporting time – Good Shepherd annual reports
Luminus has had an on-going relationship with Good Shepherd Youth & Family Service from our early days. Among the many projects we’ve produced together have been their Annual Reports for the past 5 or so years. The first few were primarily printed pieces, with an online download, but more recently they have been produced with more emphasis on the online presence as primary focus .
Combining Ross Bird’s stunning photographic portraits of clients, staff and volunteers with the space to breath, the ’09, ’10 and ’11 reports maintained a regular square format and simple, clean design.
Clearly there are several functions to Annual Reports. In GSYFS’ case we’ve separated out the financial data into one booklet, twinned with another presenting a colourful keep-sake over-view of services, ideals and the year’s achievements. We’ve taken an opportunity to showcase the value of supporters, staff and clients alike.
The 2013/2013 report took greater strides into the online space and was designed to work equally as a 16 page printed report and an engaging multi-page digital piece, with animations and drop-down text boxes.
