A book that is truly “Well Done”

 Recently we featured a quick bit about a Croatian design studio named Bruketa&Žinić OM.  Their creativity in Annual reports is quite astounding Here is an even deeper dive into a project they work to creat for one of their clients.

The seventh Podravka annual report made by the agency brings together all three values of the brand Podravka (heart, warmth and good recipes). This annual report has to be baked before use.

It consists of two parts, a big book containing numbers and a report of an independent auditor, and a small booklet that is inserted inside the big one that contains the very heart of Podravka as a brand: great Podravka’s recipes.

To be able to cook like Podravka you need to be a precise cook. That is why the small Podravka booklet is printed in invisible, thermo-reactive ink. To be able to reveal Podravka’s secrets you need to cover the small booklet in aluminum foil and bake it at 100 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes. If you are not precise, the booklet will burn, just as any overcooked meal. If you have successfully baked your sample of the annual report, the empty pages will become filled with text, and the illustrations with empty plates with food.

Well done

To save energy, you can bake the cooking book together with some delicious food.


This project is a winner of Clio, Epica, New York Festivals, Red Dot, Communication Arts, Cresta and London International Awards awards, and a Cannes Lions finalist.
