conwert Immobilien Invest SE, Annual Report 2015

With a new manangement board in place and record operating results, we wanted to create an annual report that transcends the last financial year and property portfolio. Our photo concept turns the vertical perspective we normally see of a builing around and presents the reader with horizontal landscape that spits the sky and conwert properties in spectacular style. For the third report in a row improved the design of the layout, tables and maps.

VTB Bank (Austria) AG, Annual Report 2014

In an era of low growth, the most successful banks will be those that master transformation. Optimally positioned in Austria and perfectly connected within the CIS, VTB Bank (Austria) AG has the network to respond to these challenges.

So we focussed the 2014/15 image world on improving its reputation, and the strong network between the Vienna head office and its German and French subsidiaries. The concept demonstrated that the bank can offer strong, credible support to its customers’ border-crossing business dealings.

TÜV Austria, Annual Report 2014

The TÜV AUSTRIA Group is the leading service provider of integrated safety, quality and technical resource management in Central Europe. TÜV AUSTRIA employs more than 1,300 staff members and generates around €130m in annual revenue. TÜV Austria came to us with a complex set of problems, all of which we judged solvable by simplifying the customer communication, text and image world which had built up unevenly over recent years. We tackled the customer communication problem by reducing the service areas down to pictorial icons which explained and unified the service areas at a glance, this in turn gave us the tools to solve the text and image world problem as we could combine the icons with success stories to give the reader a clear picture of the company and the direction it was going in. The new design attracted a great deal of attention from shareholders, staff and partners and left TÜV Austria the tools to communicate in clear and intelligent fashion in the future.

AGRANA Beteiligungs-AG, Annual Report 2014

Following the success of our award winning annual report (No.1 Sustainability, Trend AAA), we continued to work closely with Agrana on developing the perfect 2014/15 communication.

conwert Immobilien Invest SE, Annual Report 2014

Having achieved a top five position in the much covered Trend Austrian Annual Report Awards 2014, we’d set our standards high.

We decided to shift focus from customer testimonials to the six core regions that conwert operate in over Austria and Germany. By doing this, we could communicate conwert’s knowledge, experience and core values, while highlighting the benefits for their customers.

Design perfection being our business, we reworked both the Annual Report and Property Guide to improve the celebrated layout from the previous year. With a new column grid creating more space for the information to breathe, we redesigned the charts and graphs and wait with baited breath for the Trend AAA results 2015…

Vienna Insurance Group, Annual Report 2012

With a premium volume of approximately EUR 9.7 billion in 2012 and 23,000 employees, Vienna Insurance Group is one of the leading insurance companies in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

In a sector that has many clichés, we needed to create a concept for VIG’s annual report that really could stand up and be counted. The concept ‘The people behind the numbers’ perfectly fulfilled the client’s desire to show the company’s friendly face, while promoting the facts and figures to shareholders.

conwert Immobilien Invest SE, Annual Report 2013

conwert is a fully integrated property group focusing on residential and apartment buildings in Germany and Austria. Our image concept was to take the view from outside the properties and project them inside, to show the effect a location has on its tenants in a creative and colourful way. By selecting one testimonial apartment in each of conwert's core locations and projecting the cityscape across the apartment, we created a unique set of images that promote the company – not only for the annual report, but all corporate communications.

We redesigned the whole annual report, from the outside packaging to the page numbering. This complete reworking and execution of the annual report brought a fresh, clean and easy-to-read lightness that makes it a creative and functional success.
