Department of Education Agency Financial Report

Design Challenge

Through a partnership with FMR, OmniStudio was tasked with overhauling the Department of Education’s Agency Financial Report. The challenge was to create a compelling design, while keeping production simple enough to allow for multiple rounds of revisions by Ed staff.


Omni created a publication template incorporating the following visual elements:
  • Color-coded section openers, folios, and secondary text to facilitate navigation throughout the report.
  • Consistent size and type treatment of financial data tables and figures to allow readers to review content quickly and easily.
  • Compelling images of students at all ages and levels of learning to reinforce the Department of Education’s mission.
The agency received a Certificate of Excellence in Accountability Reporting (CEAR) award for the 2017 edition, and has engaged OmniStudio to design and produce the 2018 report.
