2021: A year
in design

As the world slowly returned to a new normal following the pandemic, one thing remained constant this year - the great partnerships between JDJ Creative and our clients.

Now, as we end 2021, it’s time to look back at a great year in design.

In our tenth year as an agency, we've had the privilege to collaborate with some amazing brands on a range of diverse projects...

From reports to social media panels, we worked with teams around the world, helping to illustrate their insights and data through infographics, interfaces and imagery.

Scroll down to see what we’ve been working on in 2021…
 


Annual reports and whitepapers

We’ve made quite a name for ourselves in the annual report space over the years, and 2021 was no different.

This year, we’ve been privileged to have played a part in the creation of many important documents for long-term clients such as EY and Cambridge University, and new clients such as GSK and the London Borough of Hounslow.

Annual report covers

 

Behind the scenes, a lot goes into the production of a large report. We’ve spent hours scrolling through images on stock photography sites searching for the ‘perfect’ image to represent a chosen theme, studiously re-created graphs and proofread pages of content.

But it’s all been worth it to create these reports which look as good as they are important. Full of useful research, the content in these reports have the power to inspire audiences and change the way the world works.

With the demand for sustainability reporting increasing further from next year, we hope to help even more of you with your reporting needs in 2022.

Branding

We know how important your brand is to your business success.

So we take time to get it right. From ‘purpose’ to ‘strategy’, we’ve worked with some amazing brands in 2021, helping them to understand their audience, tailor their messaging and create visual identities that will last for generations.
 
Examples of branding - logo design and business cards

 

This year it’s been exciting to create new brands for progressive companies such as Nu Quantum, and we look forward to seeing them grow and make a difference to the world.

It’s also been nice to see the growth of established brands such as Directed Systems. They’ve come a long way since we first collaborated with them, and it’s been an honour to have played an ongoing part in their journey.
