Crunching numbers doesn’t have to be boring. WAX’s Annual Reports in our Design Annual 2010 (image above) and Annual Reports 2013 (image below) illustrate how statistics mean more than financials.

WAX’s Annual Report for the Calgary Society for Persons with Disabilities was written by hand on objects that were purchased from fundraising efforts to hep people living with disabilities. Their Osum Oil Sands Corp. Annual Report visually portrays a company’s influence on its industry. “Osum has now raised over $1 billion in private equity since 2006,” They write in the Annual Report. “As impressive as that number is, even more impressive is the roster of investors backing Sum.”
