EED Annual Report 2021

A cross-channel publication, including a print & interactive online version

The European Endowment for Democracy (EED) is an independent, grant-making organisation, established in 2013 by the European Union (EU) and EU member states as an autonomous International Trust Fund to foster democracy in the European Neighbourhood, the Western Balkans, Turkey and beyond.

Vermillion worked with EED to design their recently-published Annual Report 2021, which was recently launched in the European Parliament.

The top level summary report was designed to engage and inform EED stakeholders online, using layers of information (including animations, audio and video files) to allow the reader to engage with the report as they choose; to direct their own experience depending on areas of interest. We created an animated 'sting' for the report, to be posted across EED social media channels in order to generate interest in and awareness of the report, while linking to it. This comprehensive, cross-channel approach to the Annual Report was a first for EED and was very well received; they had extremely positive feedback from their stakeholders.


Our proposal for the Annual Report positioned it as a cross-channel publication, including a print version, interactive online pdf and top-level summary report designed for the digital publishing platform ISSUU. Beginning with the printed version, we refreshed the design of the report, making it dynamic, modern and well-paced. We created engaging infographics and original illustrations for the project.
