Zumtobel Annual Report 17/18

Agency Heejae Kim

Client Sagmeister & Walsh



Annual ID



Zumtobel is a lighting manufacturer based in Dornbirn, Austria. For Zumtobel's 2017/18 annual report, Sagmeister & Walsh was asked to create a custom artist edition. Inspired by light and shadow; a visual language was created synthesizing typographic play with gradients. Each chapter includes unique covers of Zumtobel Group subsidiaries.

The annual report came with 20 prints featuring typographic phrases inspired by light. The report was printed in a standard and limited edition. The standard sandwiched the report between two cover boards, while the latter was specially equipped in a box. Each edition was wrapped by bands that form the letter “Z.”
