Annual Reports

developed for Equitable Group Inc.

Project: Annual report development – Equitable Group Inc.

What we did:

  • photography
  • graphic design
  • press approvals


From concept to delivery, HotHouse creates shareholder value.

We have delivered annual reports on-time and on-budget for over a decade. We have designed for global enterprises, NYSE and TSX traded companies, and we have photographed in many locations around the world. While most of our work is created for Toronto-based public companies, we are available to international clients who have discriminating tastes.

We have taken care of all aspects of the annual report creation, including concept, writing, interviews, research, photography, graphic design and print production. We select the printer, the paper stock, inks and binding, and make sure the mailing house gets their copies on-time for mailing out your important shareholders.

For Equitable Group, we work with Fundamental Creative Inc., who spearheads the project with the client. We provide design direction via a PDF presentation and suggest photography style. Once our stories are written and approved we move on to capturing the moments on location and in studio. We were tasked to photograph two customers that had compelling narratives. We also took a day to go inside the offices of Equitable and photographed staff from all levels of the bank. They are an impressively respectable company, and one we have been fortunate to value as a client for 8 years.
