The Enablers

The Enablers focuses on the role of banks, accounting firms, consultants and lawyers in facilitating criminal conduct that formed part of the state capture enterprise. This investigative report shows that the systems that enable grand corruption and state capture are global in nature, and that private sector elites are central to the problem. This investigative report is intended to provide the evidence and analysis to assist Justice Zondo and the State Capture Inquiry with this pressing task in 2020.

For this report we followed the bold, edgy design developed for the previous report in the series (The Bottom Line). We used oversized modernist fonts, large graphics and high contrast tones to make interesting and accessible what might normally have been a difficult read. The publication was produced on a tight budget, so we chose to print in black and white. By using “tipped in” colour pages, we were able to create something striking at a minimal cost.
