Raw Material Annual Reviews 2015-18

Having worked with Raw Materials since 2012, Oakshed was excited to be commissioned to work on their Annual Review in 2015, and have continued to design it each year since then. The brief (or challenge!) was to make the review content more engaging and dynamic – reflecting the organisation’s work. The Annual Reviews are printed and also set up on issuu.com for online viewing. See 2015-16 Review,2017 Review and 2018-19 Review

We have worked with Oakshed Design over the last six years. Designer Hanna Oakes has produced excellent, high quality and creative designs for our brochures, reports, calendars and programme leaflets annually. The workflow and production process has always been cooperative and thoughtful, responsive and proactive, enabling the outcomes to be achieved efficiently and to our great satisfaction. She is a delight to work with and has a real ability to translate a design brief into stunning layouts.
