Rothamsted Research Annual Review

Rothamsted is the longest running agricultural research station in the world, providing cutting-edge science and innovation for nearly 170 years.

The Annual Review is a key piece of communication for the organisation and a fresh approach to the design was created for the printed document, plus a short film was produced for use online featuring Rothamsted Director Achim Dobermann, who describes and discusses the progress made in 2015/2016 with colleagues.

The creative task was to explain the year Rothamsted have had in an imaginative way, and showcase the culture and success stories throughout 2015/16, explaining their implications internationally.

Using elegant typography and engaging with full-bleed imagery a simple visual framework underpins the document layout to navigate the audience through a busy year and the various complex projects undertaken.
