Seismic photography

This month we have been working with our long term client Seabird Exploration on their latest Annual Report, whilst also setting the style for their 2016 quarterlies.


Seabird’s primary focus is the collection of seismic data obtained from the seabed, so beyond some interesting chart data, we are constantly looking at how we can bring their service offer to life, and nothing serves this better than great original photography that captures life on the ocean waves, and on land.SeaBird_Annual_Report_Spreads_8-9_web

The main job of the Report will always be to communicate the performance of the company so a lot of time is spent working out how the content and story flows through the document in the lead up to the figures. Stats and facts are pulled out in a modular grid system with a backdrop of small and large imagery to add pace. The overall effect is to create a document that doubles up as an engaging brochure to promote the business and communicate the work undertaken by the crews on the ships and the shore based teams.


Before the project began we had the opportunity to brief photographers on the style and images we were looking for, covering various vessels across the world. Seabird have always seen the value in good design and imagery and now have some dynamic shots to add to their ever growing image archive.
