Certis Cisco Annual Report


2016 was a significant milestone for Certis Cisco, the largest security services provider in Singapore. The company had fully incorporated their cyber security services into their business, and they wanted to publish an annual report that would highlight these changes.

As a security services organisation, Certis Cisco requested for a more serious and professional style. In addition, the annual report should ideally feature Certis Cisco’s main M3 framework, which illustrates how the company actively synergises Man, Machine and Method in their operations.

After much brainstorming, we adopted a more futuristic approach to our designs, with a focus on virtual mechanics. For example, the infographics and titles in the annual report featured high-tech, circular disks that became motifs. When it came to the bullet points in the infographics, line icons that looked simple but elegant were used. The inspiration behind these designs came from the accomplishments that Certis Cisco made in cyber security.

The layout was relatively straightforward, with the words being placed neatly adjacent to monochrome photographs. The pages were sky blue to prevent the annual report from looking too dull. Furthermore, grid lines were added in key sections of the report to give those pages a bolder look. For more abstract concepts and statistics, we designed multiple lists and infographics that helped to explain such concepts visually.

To emphasise certain important points, several pages of the annual report used a navy blue background and white-coloured font. This created a distinct contrast to the regular sky blue pages. In addition, quotes describing the different departments of the company were used to break up large chunks of texts to enhance readability. This meant that certain pages of the report contained only a singular quote.

We are excited and grateful to have been chosen as the graphic design company to help create the 2016 Certis Cisco annual report.
