Annual Report design and production

'Transforming the Future" – Cambridge design company Smith have recently delivered the Cambridge University Annual Report 2009.

Smith were proud to be asked to design and produce the report in such a prestigious year for the University - marking 800 years of success and academic achievement this year, the report held a special review and account of the 800th Anniversary celebrations and marked the significance of this year by using an image from the light show of January of this year, designed by world renowned light artist, Ross Ashton as the front cover image.

Under the banner of "Celebrating the past, transforming the future", the Report offers a glimpse of life at Cambridge over the past year and gives an insight into the University's stewardship of its capital assets. Seen through the eyes, images and words of selected staff the report reflects on the Universities continued commitment to raising educational aspirations, knowledge sharing and widening participation, key investments in resources and infrastructure, its continued commitment to research into sustainability, climate change and conservation as well as its contribution to the local and global economy.

Adrian Kimpton of Smith said: "we were delighted to be asked to design and produce this report, as a design company based in the city we were very aware of the significance of this year for the University and to be able to contribute creatively to the year was particularly pleasing."

Smith designed, managed and art directed the process (see more), the main portraits were photographed by Mark Sims and the report was printed by Cambridge University Press.
