More clients are embracing illustration-led design and exacting print for their reports and accounts. No exception are Howdens, Derwent, Informa and property company U+I, all of whom turned to the south-east London printer to shake up their spreadsheets. U+I is a photogenic business demanding high-quality imagery. And when it came to presenting its numbers, the client was no less demanding on aesthetics. All financials and figures came within a detachable 8pp cover and a cloth-lined book block. That block was section sewn and bound into white buckram-style cloth, while magazine-style front sections meant the smart money had to be on Empress Litho for a win.

Schroders’ report was completed on a tight budget, yet use of creative papers, die-cutting and foiling ensured lavish impact.
