Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Annual Report – GOLD

Gulf Coast Bank’s annual report is unlike any others. It contains all the facts and figures you might expect but also tells a story through design, photography and copywriting. The bank’s goal was a report that was colorful, readable and reflective of its corporate culture. Each year the project has an overarching theme that incorporates elements of the Gulf Coast region, showcases clients and highlights the philanthropic work of the bank. In 2019 Innovative created a food and dining-themed report that included detachable recipe cards.
