Annual report 2015

We published our first RUFA Annual Report in 2015. It combines a technological aspect with the manual one of the Academy. A complex work reflecting the skills and dedication of the people designing and carrying out the project. All the professionals at the Academy were involved in selecting the paper and in the layout and contents of the report. The semi-rigid cover made with cobalt-blue paper is immediately linked to external digital contents through QR codes that become silk-screen printed graphic patterns. Inside it contains the key highlights, figures and numbers, and a selection of the best projects, a review of the major events and partnerships and, last but not least, the list of the protagonists of the year. A special insert was dedicated to the 2015 RUFA Contest, which was the main event held during the year. We decided to present this as a separate feature, with a different format and type of paper, on a black background and with desaturated images. In a hundred pages, thanks to a careful composition of images / contents and choice of colours, all of the dynamism and creativity of the Academy is expressed.
