Zumtobel AG / Annual report

Discipline: Communication

The annual report for Zumtobel AG is divided up section for section for the AG and its three subsidiary companies, with a different neon color assigned to each. The color coding is reflected in the design details of the book – from the elastic bands around the book that serve as book wrappers to the bookmark ribbons stitched into the volume itself. In contrast to the change of colors is a typographical reduction: only a single font is used (in a single style), although there are extreme variations in font size.

The Zumtobel AG annual report has become a work of art. A tricolor neon code, which is apparent even on the cover, divides the company into its three subsidiaries. The perfect realization of the color code, great typography and the paper quality were all convincing. Simple and consistent, this report is a work of art in itself.
