Room 13 Design won the pitch for the Corporate ID/ brochure/ signage design for the new Grand Daddy Hotel - part of the Daddy Long Legs group. In 2006 and 2007, Spier’s Annual Reports amounted to over 90 sheets of paper per report, per year. Despite being printed on doubled-sided A4 pages, the 1000 reports printed amounted to 90 000 printed sheets of paper per year; a demand on the environment that greatly troubled the eco-sensitive company. Spier challenged Room 13 to find a way to present an online version of the report that was still accessible and informative.The technical creation of the Annual Report was done by Hellocomputer who took a Bronze for their work at the recent 2008 Loerie Awards.
