International Monetary Fund

Each year since 2020, we design and develop the digital version of the IMF’s annual report, integrating bespoke animations, data viz, and storytelling elements to amplify their message.

About The Client

The IMF promotes global economic growth and financial stability, encourages international trade, and reduces poverty.


The IMF annual report is full of data and insight, but it can lack flavor. The IMF wanted a new vendor to re-imagine what the report could look and feel like, in order to draw more readers in and properly showcase the critical work the IMF does.


Every year Cantilever collaborates with our partners at Feisty Brown, an exceptional editorial design studio, who are responsible for designing the print version of the AR.

We work together to define an aesthetic that expresses the message of the IMF’s editorial team for the year’s content, then apply it both to print and web.

We bring the IMF’s data to life with rich data visualizations and interactive maps to tie data to real-world impact. The project runs from sprint through fall and has strict delivery deadlines, which we have always met.
