Report Design


One of the Big Four accounting firms, EY is a trusted voice on all financial and governance matters. With a stated purpose of Building a better working world, EY provides deep insight from in-depth data analysis to allow organisations to create value and markets to function properly.

EY provides an annual narrative reporting analysis, with findings evidenced by a review of over 100 FTSE 350 annual reports and accounts (ARAs). Of particular use to company directors, these reviews ensure ongoing effectiveness and continued best practices in the sector.

EY- Reporting on reporting practices

The brief

As part of their annual analysis of ARAs, EY asked us to design three reports focusing on what narrative reporting tells us about board governance practices in the UK. We were required to create a consistent look across the three-part series, choosing a visual theme to represent the report’s content.

Additionally, proofreading was required to ensure accuracy throughout the reports.

The solution

Using imagery from EY’s own internal branding zone and stock image libraries, we chose a theme of birds to represent the focus on planet. Charts were coloured using distinct shades from the organisation's brand guidelines to allow easy comprehension of the key points, while important figures were selected from the text and highlighted in the form of attention grabbing call outs.
