Project Overview

Knology Ltd. produces practical social science for change makers so they can be more effective and efficient at making the world better. We rebranded in 2019, changed our name, and clarified our mission. Our team is ready for the next step, and we're looking to partner with a media design team on our 2019 annual report. We envision our annual report as an online-first document that tells our story in a compelling way. We're assembling the assets now and looking for the ideal partner to work with us on a new vision. We're also worked hard and tested our current content to ensure all of our web assets are fully functional for assistive technologies and online readers. We would love to have this project also demonstrate how designers can create great stuff that's universally cool.

Estimated duration of project:
Nine weeks, 2-3 hours/week (starting March 1st)

With our new brand, we're looking for a team that can push the envelope on annual reports to tell a new story of collaboration. We thrive when we have the right creatives to push our thinking. To complete this project, we'll work quickly to align on our vision of a better world, collaborate on how to visualize our new impact measures in a compelling way, and think about how to take advantage of web tools to communication our next steps, and to create a streamlined easy to read annual report that's not full of fluff and platitudes. Brief, concise, beautiful, modern, spare, and happy. We have amazing writers on our team, so our goal is to get there together with the right visualization team.

This is a new area for us. We work on tight government grant budgets so we haven't had the resources to live up to what we can be. We hope this Taproot+ creative project will help break through those barriers to build a stronger presence in the philanthropic sector. We hope that a really genius annual report can help excite folks to fund more of this type of communications tool.

The team is ready, willing and able to support the right creative leader to volunteer on this task.

This is a new annual report. The last seven years are available on our website. But that's yesterday. We have assembled all the materials, we have the data, and are working to close out our fiscal year over the next 45 days. We have lots of pictures and content and look for guidance so we can create all the graphs needed.

The Design Deliverable is simple. It's an online annual report. Ideally, ready to post on May 1st, 2020.
