An annual report doesn’t sound like the most thrilling thing in the world. But in the hands of the right designer, it can be a thing of beauty. For Girls Who Code, the nonprofit that works to educate, inspire, and equip high school girls with the skills and resources to pursue opportunities in computing fields, an annual report is not just a document—it’s proof that their initiatives are working and that their investments are paying off.
But how do you communicate that information in a unique and easy-to-digest way? For their 2015 annual report, Girls Who Code partnered with Column Five to create an annual report that not only shows the organization’s success but uses interactivity (aka the very technology they encourage girls to master) to tell the story.
Annual reports contain an enormous amount of information, often difficult to slog through, including data, program recaps, and other relevant information. Organizing and presenting this information can be a challenge, so the interactive report was designed to help viewers easily navigate the information.
Each section features slideshows, stories, and animations that reflect the brand and its mission, all in one beautifully designed presentation. Explore the Girls Who Code 2015 Annual Report below, and learn more about the organization here.
