Report Design Agency
Accurate, effective, and visually balanced report design engages and inspires your audience.
Turning long-form copy into inspiring annual reports is what we do best. Knowing how to put images into your document isn’t enough. We’ll work with you to make sure your graphic design elements hit the mark using proven visual communication strategies that work.
Let Us Visually Communicate Your Story
Not all reports are created equal. At Kokopelli, we provide honesty, responsiveness, and a dedication to learning about your organization before we begin to create graphics to best represent you. We listen closely, learn fiercely, and work tirelessly to add value by providing powerful images and strategic layouts to tell your story.
We’ll dig deep to learn about your organization, what you do, and the message you wish to convey. From there, our talented team will use your own words to get inspired to create beautiful graphic design that will drive meaningful results. We are a report design agency which thrives on creating award-winning layouts.
We Create Digital and Print Documents Accessible to Everyone
No matter how you choose to present your report, we’re ready to make it shine. We can present your story and annual accomplishments in a clear, compelling way in any format because we have extensive experience creating digital products that also need to be able to be readily printed.
We’re careful to make sure your digital annual report is accessible to everyone, which means paying special attention to color combinations, text size, font style, and other fine details to ensure your report is both reader-friendly and consistent with your brand.
As a 508-compliant agency, we make sure any web-based content meets private industry or government security standards, while ensuring that final reports comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. § 794d), as amended by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (P.L. 105-220), which requires federal agencies to develop, procure, maintain and use information and communications technology (ICT) accessible to people with disabilities - regardless of whether or not they work for the federal government.
Our Approach to Report Design
We work hand-in-hand with you to ensure the final product meets your needs. You will be able to communicate directly with Kokopelli for the duration of your project. Leave it to us to make sure we are well-briefed so we can hit the ground running. We have experience with rapid deadlines, as well as projects with comprehensive schedules. We will work with you to establish the context, identify potential risks, analyze, and evaluate these risks, and communicate with you our findings and solutions to stay ahead of the game.
Our typical approach to data visualization follows a proven process:
Understanding the Story – Your organization is unique. We take the time to learn about your audience and the information we are presenting in the report. What's the feeling we want people to have when reading it?
Creating the Design Guide – We create mock-ups so you can see a preview of how the report will look.
Creation Time – We create graphics ranging from graphs to charts to custom illustrations.
Building the Report – We ensure report layout and design is consistent, visualization of statistics and data points makes sense, visuals and text are effectively balanced, and information is organized by chapters and sections.
Check, Check, and Check Again – We make sure all the “t”s are crossed and “i”s are dotted by performing an accuracy review where we double and triple check our work before sending to it to you for feedback.
Revise – Kokopelli will carefully review your feedback and implement it in a back-and-forth collaborative process to enhance the final product.
Polish – We recheck your report from cover to cover making any necessary corrections. We imagine ourselves as your audience to determine whether the message is accurate, clean, and clear.
Final Touches – We stay active and engaged with you to ensure your satisfaction with the final product, settling for nothing less than top-quality, mistake-free, highly-effective written and visual communication.
"508 compliance (if desired)" – 508 compliance (similar to ADA compliance) allows us to make sure digital documents are readable and accessible by everyone, regardless of disability. We write a description for every graphic, photo, table, or graph allowing any screen reader or translator to read the report properly while ensuring the digital document can be viewed on adaptive screens.
"Publish" – We can manage the printing of your report or hand off the files for you to print depending on your needs.
We understand that each project is a little different, and the scope may require deviations from our typical approach. We will adapt our approach to suit your needs. Whatever your message, whatever your audience, our job is to communicate for you clearly, honestly, and effectively.
We're flexible to help leverage our creative expertise to your benefit.

An Award-Winning team
While the best feedback we get comes from seeing our clients succeed, everyone at Kokopelli is deeply grateful to see our work recognized by industry experts.
Here you can see the array of awards we have won for our web design, graphics and more. When we embark on a project, excellence is not our goal—it's our standard.
"Right from our initial exploratory call with Kokopelli, they displayed an eagerness to understand our organization, what our needs were with the publication, and how we preferred to work. We appreciated the creativity they brought to the design process, which included giving us several design options based on our original input. The Kokopelli team was always timely and efficient and helped solve problems in the design process rather than give excuses. The work was completed on time and within budget. In short, the Kokopelli team is professional and collegial, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with them on future projects."
Dr. Vivian Walker - Executive Director, ACPD
"With our agency, we work with all kinds of producers – different genders, ages, cultures, backgrounds, experience levels and even some where English is not their first language. Kokopelli handled it all very well. They showed up to each site and shoot day with a plan and helped articulate that plan to the landowner – drone shots, B roll, interviews, etc. Every. Single. Person. That Kokopelli interviewed said they were so easy to work with!"
Dee Ann Littlefield - Public Affairs Specialist, NRCS Texas
"The Kokopelli team was very flexible - working with us to ensure that we stayed within budget and by informing us when we needed to revisit our approach if we were starting to deviate from the scope of work. This was a new innovative project, and we could only broadly define deliverables before getting started. It's because Kokopelli did such a great job staying organized from the administrative perspective while also designing and creating and producing very high quality work that I'm very proud to share our project with our school communities. Kokopelli met every challenge proactively and got the job done."
Lisa Diaz - City of Denver
"Having worked in the digital realm my entire adult life I can say that without a doubt Kokopelli is on a mission to change the agency landscape. Their approach involves something that seems so simplistic but is lost by most agencies I've worked with. Kokopelli listens and tunes into the business they're working for. They take a long term holistic approach based on the full picture of the business, and not a few metrics they can use to make themselves look good. When they say they're going to deliver, they DELIVER. The quality of the product, communication, and long-term results never fail to exceed our expectations."
John McCann - CEO, B2B Ninja
"I highly recommend Kokopelli® to any company wishing to enhance their image and take their marketing strengths to new heights, large or small. We started with a single video, and after such an enjoyable experience, as well as witnessing the positive effects from their work, we continue to hire them for all of our marketing projects now. Kokopelli goes far beyond the expected."
Christian Miller - Former President, Sales & Marketing Pelsue
"Kokopelli is always innovative. They are continuously brainstorming how they can help us do things better, which sometimes you don't get a lot of. They give us a lot of insight on just what's going on, even before I ask. They're very on top of the data and what should be tweaked to make things better. If a strategy is not working, then they try to figure out something better. Kokopelli has put in those extra touches that take time or can be tedious, but it makes a big difference in the long run. They've been great. Kokopelli has made my job easier as far as all the behind the scenes and marketing. "
