Publishing & Design

As part of a leading financial and corporate communication group, our graphic design and corporate publishing division has a unique advantage.

Enhancing corporate identity

Our combined creative, print production and online skills with our understanding of investors’ information needs and different business sectors, we write, design and produce communication materials and websites that achieve clients’ objectives, convey their messages accurately and enhance their corporate identity and values.

One of Australia’s leading publishers

We’re one of Australia’s leading publishers of annual reports, M&A documents, prospectuses, product disclosure statements and online corporate communication.

Latest technical resources

Backed by the latest technical resources, we have the capacity to handle the largest production projects and meet the tightest deadlines. Due to the amount of print we commission on behalf of our clients, we have excellent relations with many of Australia’s major printers and often can obtain preferential rates, keeping costs to a minimum.

“FCR gained respect and admiration in our company for having the courage to challenge us when our thinking was wrong, misguided or misinformed. Too many consulting organisations accede to the wishes of the client without question and dare not take the bold steps that you did.”

Trevor Hall
Vice President HR, Hydro Aluminium AS

Website Design

Websites & Digital

We assist clients with the structure, content, design and construction of websites and other online communication. An online presence is an important source of information for investors and other corporate stakeholders and also can build brand awareness and relationships with customers.

Website strategy & design

As a first step to developing an online strategy, we analyse and understand our client’s target markets and the messages it wishes to deliver. Implementing this in a website refresh, we discuss the design and content requirements and how the organisation should be positioned, and then prepare a detailed site map and visual concept. We also advise on how to move this strategy to other online activity.

Corporate video

With increased emphasis on visual communication, a short corporate video on a website can explain a company’s business more effectively than words. We are skilled at producing videos that enable people to understand an organisation’s dynamics and competitive strengths.

“FCR’s communication advice and support were invaluable in the process of reviewing the future of our Kurri Kurri smelter. FCR contributed strongly in conveying our messages to stakeholders, which is crucial when implementing a decision that attracts wide interest.”

Halvor Molland
Vice President Communication, Norsk Hydro ASA, Oslo

Communication materials

M&A Documents

We have wide experience of producing bidder’s and target’s statements, scheme booklets and other communication materials during M&A transactions.

Around-the-clock service

We understand the pressures, constraints and need for around-the-clock service, and our efficient processes and latest technology enable us to respond to the tightest deadlines.

Fully integrated service

We produce all documents to print stage in our CBD offices, enabling us to provide a fully integrated service in complete security. When designing a document, our involvement in some of Australia’s highest profile takeovers helps us to present a company’s key messages in the most effective manner.

FCR played a key role in developing and communicating Resource Pacific’s takeover defence. We would highly recommend FCR as an experienced adviser.

Managing Director, Resource Pacific Holdings Limited


Prospectuses & PDS

We design and produce prospectuses and product disclosure statements which communicate a company’s or fund’s strengths, strategies and investment attractions. As part of a leading financial and corporate communication consultancy, we can also assist with drafting or editing text if required.

Around-the-clock service

Working closely with the client and its corporate advisers, we provide an around-the-clock service to produce an effective document that supports the offer’s communication strategy.

Speed & confidentiality

We understand the time-critical nature of financial documents and have the resources to meet the tightest deadlines. Confidentiality is assured as all work to ASIC lodgement stage is undertaken in-house.

“FCR has helped build Lifespan’s industry profile at a critical time in our firm’s growth and at a time of great industry change. It has been reassuring to have FCR working beside us as we have communicated with the wider financial services sector in bold new ways over the past year.”

Effective Communication

Annual reports

FCR is one of Australia’s leading publishers of annual reports. We regard design as a means of communication, rather than an end in itself, and our aim always is effective communication of our client’s messages.

Communication objectives

We work closely with each client to define its communication objectives. We then combine our creative skills with our understanding of investors’ information needs to plan a structure, theme and design that achieve the company’s goals.

Full service

We can assist with writing, design, layout, photography and proofreading the report, along with both print/online production and distribution, offering an end-to-end solution with efficient project management.

“For more than 15 years, FCR has designed and produced annual reports that have enhanced Programmed Maintenance Services’ investor relations. FCR’s creative designs and advice on structure and content have helped to build our brand and present financial and operational achievements clearly for institutional and retail investors, analysts and stockbroking advisers. The FCR team is professional, efficient and responsive and we strongly recommend its services.”
