26 Annual Report Examples for Your Inspiration

This is actually an old post about annual report examples. We have come up with a most updated roundup of best annual report design examples. Please check that link to get more inspiring ideas.

I am currently working on an annual report design project. That was why I was out looking for some annual report examples online that I could use as inspiration for my project. The examples I found were too beautiful not to share. So here they are. I picked only the recent annual reports (that means, 2007 or 2008 annual reports) so we could see the trends and what other designers have been using in their designs. Although there are some exceptions, I cannot resist the temptation of putting these annual reports in this list because they just look really awesome even if they are five years old or so already.

Would you believe that I  actually had a creative block when I started working on this annual report project but just looking at some of these annual report examples, I was able to get back into the groove? Yes, these designs are really inspiring that I am pressured to share them with you as well.

So here are what I believe are the best of the recent annual report examples that I have seen so far. If you have other resources that you think are better than what are posted below, please leave a comment at the end of this post and do not  forget the link where we could find these resources and hopefully, we will be able to add them on this list. So without much further ado, here are 26 beautiful annual report design examples and I gathered from around the world wide web.


INSPIRING ANNUAL REPORT EXAMPLES

01 – Rossendale Borough Council Corporate Plan
The spiral wire used to bind this report makes it look less formal but yes, it separates this report from the traditional ones which usually have perfect binding or saddle stitched.  The shade of  yellow used for the cover is also very attractive that no one would surely miss or ignore this Annual Report.

  1. I was surprised to not see the Feltron Report here! People should check it out too! He does a personal annual report that is really interesting and has been doing it for years. I saw him speak at the Future of Web Design in NYC. I was really impressed! This is a great post though!!! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Hey

    You showcased an annual report for yahoo that I thought was pretty cool. I wanted to show it to my colleague, however now you have removed it from the list.

    Can you e-mail a screen shot of that one to me?
    Thanks sooooo much

  3. Great examples of printed design work, thanks. With fewer businesses opting for print-based marketing material, it’s great that annual reports are providing such scope for creative design.
