Storytelling with creative design


EUREKA is a major intergovernmental organisation for market-driven industrial R&D. EUREKA aims to enhance European competitiveness through innovation-driven collaboration between industry, research institutes and universities.

Our relationship with EUREKA began when we worked closely with the organisation’s key stakeholders, identifying and crafting major success stories for promotion. Our delivery of these editorial tasks led to EUREKA inviting us to tender for the production of their 30th Anniversary Report.

Having won the tender, we set about producing an 80-page document designed to celebrate EUREKA’s past, present and future. We were tasked with conceptualising and producing a document that would comply with strict brand guidelines but stand out from previous reports of its type.

Stories were crafted around the highlights of the last 30 years, and brought to life through interviews with high-level stakeholders and R&D representatives.

Beyond building the architecture for the publication itself, the design team also added a number of key flourishes to add character and gravitas to the report. These included a foldout timeline, an infographic of key technologies, and special print finishes.

The finished result was a beautifully crafted report which was launched at EUREKA’s 30th Anniversary celebration held in Lugano, Switzerland.

“We had worked with Research Media on a number of occasions when they won the tender to create our 30th Anniversary Report – and so we already knew that the copywriting team they retain in-house is excellent. The proposal they put forward for this complex project outclassed renowned UK communication agencies for a competitive budget.

During the process of working on the report, we were also impressed by the abilities of their design and editorial teams and by their skilful project management: taking a proactive role when appropriate. It made the whole undertaking simple and straightforward from end to end. The team were always willing to discuss our exact requirements with us, and went to great lengths to ensure that we got what we wanted. We are delighted with the finished product, which truly reflects the broad scope and proud history of EUREKA– and we look forward to working with Research Media again in the future.”
