004 was responsible for the latest The Navigator Company – 2017 Annual Report. Its premium version consists of two volumes: the 2017 Annual Report and the 2016/17 Sustainability Report, contained in a wooden box with volumetry on both main faces.

The wood used was certified pine, remitting the design of the embossing to a forest context.

For The Navigator Company, the forest represents not only a resource of raw material, but also appears as a field of development and intense dedicated research. The sustainability of the forestry sector is considered crucial and inherent in the company's DNA, and the forest management model under the responsibility of The Navigator Company is certified by the international FSC® and PEFCTM systems.

The packaging (and the annual reports) designed by 004 – and with art direction by Rodrigo Saias – reflects this importance and evokes the forest universe conceptually and sensorially. It should be noted that there is still a second version, whose container is made of paper pulp produced by The Navigator Company, reproducing the same volumetric set on both sides of larger dimension.
