Having a long tradition of creating printed reports, SEDA's decision to transition to a solely online report was not made lightly.

"In the economic development world, SEDA has always been known as a leader and innovator in our marketing and sales efforts. We haven't been afraid to do something different. Through various reasons,... we had not completed an annual report in several years. To start getting us back into the game... we knew we wanted to do something different than the traditional printed annual report. Plus, the fact that it was more cost effective was appealing."

But why not just output a pdf version of your print report?

"Plain and simple, that's pretty boring. We didn't want something that people just glanced at and thought ok, that's it. We wanted people to engage with the report."

Responsive Design

Looks fantastic and works seamlessly on any device. Avoid user frustration and report abandonment. With projections showing more users will access the internet via a mobile device than desktop by 2015, your annual report needs to hold up despite this sea change.

Infographics

Beyond just charts and graphs, infographics help tell a richer, clearer story. See your data visualized, your ideas made into art in a way a block of text can never deliver. Infographics can increase the traffic to your website by 25% -- turn your annual report into a serious online marketing tool.

Analytics

To really understand what matters to your audience you've got to know what content they're actually reading. Analytics will tell you exactly what areas you might want to put more emphasis on in future years. Even beyond this, analytics can also reveal surprising insight on where you may have a growing audience.

Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

So what kind of reaction has your new online report recieved?

"The reaction has been great and all positive so far! I was concerned that people wouldn't look at the annual report but based on responses we have gotten from people, they have. They like that its something different, that it feels "cutting edge." It makes our stakeholders feel like they were are back in the game."

"I love the home page. The striking photography with the simple navigation just WOWS people. I like the big bold photography. We steered away from more text this year and I think that was a right decision. People can get the facts and see the beautiful photography and still get the message we are trying to convey."

"During the RFP process, a member of our review committee asked me who created the winning design pitch, an agency from New York or LA? When I replied Paragon was located in Savannah a few eyebrows raised. Paragon delivered a killer package and continues to draw attention to the Creative Coast."
