New Work: AkzoNobel Annual Report
Pentagram continues its creative collaboration as global brand guardians for AkzoNobel, the largest global paints and coatings company and a major producer of speciality chemicals, with the design of their latest annual report. AkzoNobel owns brands such as Dulux, Hammerite and International; their products have been used on iconic projects such as London’s Millennium Wheel, the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium in Beijing and Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia. Reflecting AkzoNobel’s position as the colour authority, the annual report is decorated with blended stripes of colour brought to life by a high gloss varnish. The report also features case studies illustrated with images coated in a high gloss finish, and the colourful theme runs throughout the publication to aid navigation in a manner appropriate to a company that is all about colour and coatings and their infinite variety.
