2k page layout design by freelancers
A bid or a tender layout is a huge project. Sarahjane is given a rough Microsoft Word document to import it into InDesign. She uses design corporate brand guidelines and InDesign with master pages and styles to keep the work consistent e.g. fonts, colours, TOC etc. A tender layout is best created a certain way to flow and be amended easily. Tender deadlines become very tight and working late nights and even away from home is not a problem. Amends and sign off are made quicker with the writer beside the InDesigner.
Sarahjane charges by the hour and will keep a detailed timesheet. Based in Brighton but will work anywhere require to get the job done. Please see Sarahjane’s references.
Blue Edge, Freelance Artworker
An Artworker is the designer’s mechanic
A car designer will never build or maintain a car, the mechanic does.
A professional Artworker uses InDesign to its full potential (e.g. master pages, styles, keyboard shortcuts, TOC’s etc.). Creating a clean and tidy print ready layout and will be quicker than a designer. This is excellent for large page documents / catalogues / brochures / reports and tenders, keeping consistencies and to corporate branding. An Artworker will also predict future amends and create the layout accordingly. We also have to be highly organised with studio files e.g. images, word files, amends, each office has its own filing structure. This helps other colleagues pick a project quickly.
Artworker’s enables the designer do what they are good at – DESIGNING!
