Photographer David Partner and illustrator Andrew Davidson collaborated closely to create the images for Railtrack’s 1997/8 annual report, titled Moving Forward. Designed by Stocks Austin Sice for the second successive year, illustrations and photographs were combined for the full-colour spreads.

The combination of the visual styles is meant to convey that transformation within the company. As with last year’s document, the annual report is covered in a specially designed poster.
