Working remotely I was asked to design a staff stock catalogue using existing website branding (colours, logo and fonts). A simple and quick layout of 26 pages. This lead to me creating two more catalogues, two order forms and a stock leaflet. Using the latest Adobe InDesign to create the layout and PDF’s for amends and comments.

Creating a branded Microsoft Word template

Microsoft Word can be tamed!

I enjoy a challenge and Fruit asked if I would create Microsoft Word templates for University of Cambridge to help standardise their paperwork. The designer had created the rebrand and I copied this style into Microsoft Word. Using headers, footers and styles to create a variety of templates.

Microsoft Word styles are easy to use once you know how. I am also available to teach.

Quark layout converted into a InDesign layout

A InDesign files can be made from Quark on the internet

Converting Quark to InDesign on the internet will give you the basic’s. Colours, images and lots and lots of text boxes. The layout will still require artworking and proofing. The file can be polished, as an Artworker I would still start a layout from scratch as you don’t know what nasties lie within. Giving you a clean and tidy file for print.

Artworking InDesign tables for lots of data

Tables are very quick when you know how

Tables are my favourite, neat and tidy with full control. Using InDesign, the tables flowed nicely from page to page, I created table styles for full control of the fonts and colours, this made client amends quicker. Amends where made using PDF comments.

What is an 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!
