Commonwealth Bank

Gathering reporting under one roof

Commonwealth Bank reports on its financial and non-financial performance across a range of platforms and publications each year. Our brief was to design a suite of reports – both financial and non-financial – to communicate the bank’s strategy, performance and commitment to corporate responsibility.

The solution

The project had three parts:

1. Gather all reporting under one roof:
We would develop a look and feel to be applied to all the covers, page layouts and infographics across the suite – no matter their size or format. The reports would be designed in a print format and interactive PDF format for online reading.

2. Simple and easy to use interface for stakeholders:
We would design and build a new Commonwealth Bank investor relations microsite, where all the reporting documents could be accessed and new reports could easily be added in the future.

3. Engaging presentation of strategy and key messages:
Via a suite of infographics, strategic advice and a sense-check of content, we would help the Bank communicate the ways in which it secures and enhances financial wellbeing, its contribution to the Australian economy, its approach to corporate responsibility and highlights from the year in review.

The result

We worked closely with the investor relations, corporate responsibility, user experience and digital teams to create a one-stop-shop for investors. The site featured infographics capturing key statistics, a live share price feed, videos from the CEO and reporting documents for easy download.
