Pillars of Strength

A new entity and authority inspiring wisdom, higher ideals and stability

Our inspiration has come from geometric shapes giving us form and structure in the identity that is strong and confident with overlapping letters that represent the diversity, depth and transparency of ICDM’s knowledge, services and which one finds in corporate boardrooms. The fresh blue and purple colour palette are symbolic of what boardrooms and its members represent such as trust, authority, dignity and creativity.

As a new entity ICDM, the Institute of Corporate Directors Malaysia was looking for an identity, corporate website, collaterals and visual language that is fresh, innovative, contemporary, authoritative, and embodies their dedication “to enhancing the professionalism and effectiveness of corporate directors in Malaysia….. and promoting good governance amongst boards of companies.”

PIAM

The squared circle

Bringing life back to a 40 year brand through a corporate brand refresh

We have highlighted the capital ‘P’ as a symbolic icon of the association through a fresh and bold visual. It sends a strong message of not only being ‘people oriented’ but also inclusive of the versatile ‘personalities’ embodied by the association. The curvatures of the icon with its fluid circular motion represents the constant progression throughout the many facets of the association. The heritage, constant progression and depth of the association is also captured in the colours, where we have kept the original dark green and have taken it further with the gradient of greens and yellow that represent growth, vitality, reliability and originality.
Any brand with a heritage behind it at some point needs to be updated and brought into the present. As a 40 years old brand PIAM needed a refresh and meaning brought back to the brands identity, positioning and story. Striking the right balance between heritage and the evolutionary process of progressing into the future was critical in representing the brand and the association. This balance can be seen through the identity, collaterals and online reporting.

You gotta own it

Creating a brand that celebrates the everyday champion

Everything, from the theme of imagery to the page numbers, have been carefully curated to introduce a brand that visually embodies confidence, determination and the can do attitude that every triathlete lives by. The rich vibrancy of colours, fonts and imagery has shaped and solidified the identity of this magazine.

The only triathlon and endurance sports magazine to come out of Singapore with the aim to garner the attention of true athletes and written by athletes established, professionals or newcomers. Such a magazine needs to hold a strong, impressionable and relevant brand presence with its readers and those from the world of triathlon.

Enhancing the finance industry

A total make over taking things to the next level

The look and design is refreshed with infographics that brings out the keys facts, colourful graphic orientated images that bring life to the pages and photographs celebrating people. Giving a consistent professional looking design language throughout, moving the publication towards a more unique and differentiated place in the mind of readers.

The Asian Institute of Finance has a “purpose to enhance human capital development and talent management across the Asian financial services industry”. Through its publication The Asian Link it caters to the C-suite banking, finance professionals, academics and general business professionals.  With content coming from professionals and market researchers the magazine was still not 100% in par with other international business and finance orientated magazines when it came to the overall look, feel and flow of the content.

Looking the part

A total make over taking things to the next level

The first thing we did was to give breathing space to the content, with the use of bold fonts and a clean design. We were able to bring a visually pleasing aesthetic and digestive appearance to the overall layout and flow to the publication, which is enhanced further by simplistic infographics and images.

As an authority in the dental profession there is the need for substance and knowledge along with the appearance and a visual positioning that brings confidence and professionalism. A journal like publication with endless pages of words is not the best way to capture a reader’s interest, nor build the confidence in the next generation of members and professions to invest their time and money into the association.

Voice of Malaysian insurance

Repositioning to be of value again

To bring the value back we used creative graphics, solid fonts and pleasant tones, the selection of images and colours used are kept to a minimum and delivered with a creative touch in order to bring out the key topics of discussion. We have kept the focus on the content by bringing a level of diversity and inclusion from the industry itself, whilst establishing a recognisable look and feel for the magazine. Having people on the cover brings us back to being a publication for the people who make up the insurance industry.

INSURANCE is the only publication for the insurance industry that comes out of Malaysia serving as a platform for readers to stay updated and connected with the industry. As such the magazine needs to be engaging from start to finish with content that is of value to readers and that not only caters to those already established in the industry, but also to those coming up the ranks.

It's a lifestyle

A refreshed Aerospace magazine with a balance of industry and lifestyle

We played around a concept that is fresh, sophisticated that speaks lifestyle and aerospace. The clean space and vividly large imagery complement one another while the fonts, colour palettes and layout reintroduced the content to feel both contemporary and modern topped off with cover designs that is distinctive to Aerospace Singapore.

Aerospace Singapore magazine is for those in the Aerospace industry, as a fast paced and futuristic industry it deserves a magazine that can relate. So tasked with breathing life into the magazine again we took it from your typical wordy industry magazine and cranked the design and look up several notches to match that of a trendy lifestyle publication.

For the leaders of tomorrow

Creating a new MANAGEMENT magazine with relevance

We refreshed the MANAGEMENT magazine brand with content covering a broader scope of topics such as leadership, finance, digitalisation, law and HR. Keeping in mind the next generation of leaders both the print and digital versions have been approached with clean spaces, a simplistic design and layout complimented by a pastel colour palette, infographics and mixture of graphics and images.

With more than 50 years of catering to leaders and management the voice of the Malaysian Institute of Management needs to be in tune with the current trends, current affairs and challenges being faced by leaders in a variety of industries. To ensure its relevance and value the publication was in need of a make-over and needed to be taken online.

The 7 Benefits of Digital Reporting You Surely Know, Right?

Online Reporting

Online Reporting

the 7 benefits of digital reporting you surely know, Right?

The way we develop, view and deliver Annual Reports has evolved from 100% print, to cd’s, pdf’s and flip pages. Some of these changes were driven by stricter regulations and the growing demand by shareholders for more transparency. However, the changes have opened up great new opportunities for Investor Relations professionals to engage with shareholders. The growing global trend of online reporting through microsites is a perfect example and an opportunity for companies of all sizes.

No matter the size of your company the Annual Report is an obligation that cannot be avoided. Unfortunately, many companies, especially SMEs miss the value in producing an Annual Report and merely see it as pure torture that takes up money, resources and time they would rather be allocating elsewhere.

There is no doubting that not everyone will read every single page of your Annual Report, but still it does happen to be the most comprehensive opportunity for a company to communicate on it’s financial performance, activities, corporate social responsibilities and future directions.

One just needs to look at major MNC’s around the world and the investment that is made on Annual Reporting (print and online) and IR websites alone. For smaller companies that do not have the reach of larger companies, the Annual Report becomes even more important in sharing the company’s corporate story, it’s value to shareholders and potential investors.

There is still a serious need for companies to start recognising the importance of Investor Relations and the growing need to invest more resources towards effective and holistic communications, giving investors better and more accessible information to understand your business better. This is where we start to see the digitalisation of Annual Reports meeting and enabling these needs.

Having an Annual Report microsite does not necessarily mean we do away with the traditional print version of the AR or current forms of interactive reporting such as pdfs and flip pages. Instead, if budgets allow they are best used to complement the online report and be a part of your overall communications mix.

There is also the use of social media which speeds-up the distribution of content with a greater reach. This needs to be strategically managed.

What is exciting for all stakeholders involved with microsites – companies, investors, employees and users alike – is the level of flexibility, interaction, engagement, customisation and countless advantages that can be experienced with these microsites. These advantages are simply not possible through a print, PDF or flip page platform.

1

FLEXIBILITY & INTERACTION

Microsites give more options and greater flexibility when it comes to creativity, presenting data, key communication objectives and delivering stronger messages through a mixture of multimedia options such as video, motion graphics, infographics and the like.

The stress related to strict deadlines can also be greatly reduced with the ability to manage content at any time.

2

USER-SPECIFIC

With a microsite, you have more flexibility for designing for an enhanced user experience. For instance, there is more flexibility to aid in the ease of navigation, customisation of search and linking of content to other pages in the report. This all makes it easier for users to find information that is specific to their interests and needs. Microsites help avoid the overload of information, which sometimes comes with print or PDF options.
3

SEARCH & WIDER COVERAGE/REACH

Unlike print copies or your Annual Report or PDF’s online reports on a microsite are easily found in search engines and can be shared countless times with no real extra cost. This is such a great opportunity for IR professionals not only to know shareholders better, but potential investors as well.

4

AVAILABILITY & ACCESSIBILITY

Online AR’s will always be available whether online or on mobile devices. No need to look for that printed AR which may be under a pile of other paperwork already or to spend an hour searching around the files on your desktop wondering where you saved the PDF. All you need with the AR microsite is to remember the name of the company!

5

ENGAGEMENT

Interaction through online reports and social media platforms allows for greater transparency, interaction and open dialogue with investors, shareholders and the general public. Not everyone can attend the AGM but they can interact online through a microsite.

6

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Doing away with printed Annual Reports saves on paper, reduces a company’s carbon footprint, saves costs and answers the need for corporate sustainability.

7

ANALYTICS

A well-designed online corporate reporting platform allows management access to key analytics to measure the effectiveness and level of interest in your brand and company over the longer term.

This ability to analyse shareholder engagements quickly and accurately is becoming a necessary part of communications planning for Investor Relations. Those who are using microsites are reporting that they can now concentrate on using the data for strategic planning, rather than spending days trying to obtain meaningful information in the first place.

In a nutshell, online interactive reporting is investor friendly, with a great communication mix, ease of navigation, greater and quicker accessibility to information. Potential investors find it easier to know about your corporate story, your value and investment potential through the new trend for microsites.
