The EITI is a global standard to promote the open and accountable management of extractive resources.

The new report design was a leap forward in visual language for the EITI.

TSL Education | Annual report design
TSL Education (who produce the Times Education Supplement among other things) commissioned Navig8 to produce their first fully designed annual report. We designed strong information graphics illustrating top-level facts and linked these to deeper content with more detailed analysis. The majority of the design uses graphics rather than the well trodden path of endless photographic images, which would struggle to illustrate TSL's broad and impressive impact.
UCL Enterprise | annual report design
The concept behind our Annual Report for UCL Enterprise was to (attempt to) show the massive scale of their reach in the world of entrepreneurialism and business. UCL Enterprise didn't need buzzwords – they had the hard facts, real figures and first-person accounts to show the breadth of their admirable work in London and beyond. We took these and used them as a graphical device throughout the report.
BRITISH COUNCIL | annual report design
Our fourth Annual Report for the British Council was probably the most challenging in terms of design and print management. The format completely changed in the fourth year and now all the programme work from their 110 countries was woven together under their main objectives for that year. To help the reader navigate their way through this new layout, we used a tabbed 'sign-post' system of associated content and engaged them further through clever die cut windows and half-cut pages.
british council | ANNUAL REPORT design
This year's report design moved away from previous years by devising a 'reporting map' and associated chars and diagrams to focus on the results in the regions the British Council operates. The report features a bold colour palette and in contrast pull page black and white photography. Each section uses a mix of bar and pie charts in a fixed framework. This provided the readership a clear and structured format to help communicate the Council's broad remit.
NCT supports parents by giving them accurate, impartial information so they can decide what’s best for their family. They introduce them to a network of parents to gain practical and emotional support. The design uses bold, colourised imagery and inforgraphics to create a highly engaging report.

Fund | IMPACT AND Annual report design
The impact report illustrates the company's role to promote the development of African capital markets, supporting non-sovereign entities to issue local currency bonds in developmental sectors such as financial inclusion, housing, renewable energy and agriculture. This was the first time the organisation (who did not want to be named) had produced an annual report, Navig8 guided them through the process to deliver the report in a very short deadline.
HMIC | Annual Report Design
Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) independently assesses police forces and policing across activity from neighbourhood teams to serious crime and the fight against terrorism – in the public interest. There was vast amount of data to be visualised in a clear and engaging manner.

UCL Enterprise comprising brings together business and entrepreneurial departments. Navig8 was commissioned to devise a reporting framework to communicate the departments and their diverse achievements. The report highlight key successes and not only acts as a reporting tool , but also as a way of communicating how these different department interact and how they provide benefits to UCL, student and critically, businesses.
Save the Children | annual report design
A graphic thread flowed through this report highlighting the reach and scale of the work the charity, Save the Children, does. The thread seamlessly wove through the shoes of a dead one-year old boy's shoes in India before moving on the wrap through the iron bars of a teenager in an African orphanage in the next section. It reminded the reader throughout the report that the charity work Save the Children does never ends.
BRITISH COUNCIL | Annual report design
Annual report design is highly progressive. We commissioned an upcoming artist who has shown in our own gallery (Nancy Victor) to illustrate each region and the organisation impact. We developed a unique hand drawn typeface that was digitised and used throughout the report. The artwork weaved in real events and photographic imagery to illustrate the huge scope of this truly global organisation. The end result was progressive, engaging and like nothing the British Council had produced before.
