Kingspan is a global brand founded in Kingscourt, Co Cavan in Ireland in 1965. The Company has expanded into a business operating in over 70 countries, employing more than 10,000 people. It is the global leader in high performance insulation and building envelopes. Kingspan differentiates itself through its relentless development of innovative and patent-protected proprietary technology. Driven by good design and innovation – Kingspan wanted to reflect that in their Annual Report. The overall design alludes to their many products from the use of colours (dusty pink - a reference to Kooltherm) and even the print finishes to products such as insulated panels, insulated boards, access floors and Light + Air.
The report includes architectural photography from across the globe with buildings that feature Kingspan products. We introduced a captioning device to outline the products used. The design incorporates colours from their corporate palette, as well as dusty pink (a reference to Kooltherm) and accents of metallic silver.
We included a fold-out world map to illustrate their global footprint. The financial statements at the back are printed on a soft, matte grey with a bright blue accent for headings and rules.
The design was interpreted for screen which allows you to view a digital summarised version of the annual report and download relevant sections in pdf format.
