Annual Report 2015 / Print
As a complex global engineering business, with three operating divisions and employing nearly 56,000 people, the GKN story is difficult to illustrate and needed a clearly planned and executed report to tell it’s story. The company has a strong focus on technology, together with a culture of operational excellence, and the strong typographic based design aimed to present exactly that, with a very concise lay- out and use of striking photography. Under the banner of “Engineering that moves the world”, a clear strategy and business model are visually articulated, together with a series of “stories” outling the GKN approach to its markets, technology, operational excellence and global presence. A year of record profit is portrayed using strong graphics demonstrating financial performance and KPI’s.
Annual Report 2015 / Online
In order to emulate the printed report closely, a different approach was taken for the online offering. A fully interactive “flippable” pdf, with linked navigation throughout, allowed the reader to access the information in much the same way as the printed report, whilst being instantly available as a downloaded document. This interactive format ticked all the boxes for GKN.
“Magee work to extremely high standards throughout the annual report process and the quality of the finished product always reflects this.
They are professional, reliable, efficient and flexible – everything that is needed at what is often the busiest and most demanding time of year.”
