Department of Regional Australia, Regional Development and Local Government

Annual Report 2010-11


The Department desired a modern, contemporary design and layout for their inaugural annual report that would effectively showcase the projects and work being undertaken across Australia. Using the Departmental corporate colour palette as a basis, Voodoo worked closely with key stakeholders to achieve a design and layout that met the objectives for a clean aesthetic through clever font choices and use of design elements. Being a newly formed Department, a number of challenges were encountered throughout the project, including internal resourcing issues and scope changes. Despite the timeframe pressure that these challenges created, Voodoo’s flexibility and effective project management ensured that key deadlines were met. The hardcopy version of the Annual Report was complemented by an accessible, simple to use online version and accessible PDF. The Annual Report was well received by both internal and external stakeholders, and the project team was extremely grateful for Voodoo’s efforts, as the below message is testament to.


Dear John

I wanted to pass on my sincerest appreciation for the quality of the design, typesetting, editing, indexing, printing and online services that you, Tim, Sally and the Voodoo team provided to produce the Department's first Annual Report in 2010-11. I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and all round customer service that the Voodoo Creative team demonstrated through all aspects of the project. As a small team working to massively fluctuating deadlines and content changes right to the eleventh hour, including over the October long weekend, your team's customer-focussed attitude was the difference in meeting our goal. If it wasn't for the Voodoo team's focus on delivering 'no matter what it takes' it would have been impossible to table the quality product it became by the due deadline. I have worked with many industry suppliers and Voodoo has been one of the most pleasurable to work with - especially given the type of project it could have become if it wasn't for your exceptional customer service focus. I will certainly be recommending you to others and I look forward to working with you on future projects.

Kind Regards,
Annual Report Project Manager
