The World Bank

Washington, D.C.

Working from editorial letters, key regional data, and myriad compelling photos and stories, Gensler responds to The World Bank’s desire for an annual report that resonates with the organization’s stakeholders. Assimilating an immense amount of information into a limited space, the resulting annual report is an engaging, streamlined and easy-to-follow publication that reaches The World Bank’s many audiences — including senior government officials, parliamentarians, nongovernmental organizations and journalists. The design was so well-received that it has been retained and refreshed every year subsequent to its 2005 debut.
