Excel tables quickly branded in InDesign by Freelance Artworker in Brighton

This Artworker loves tables designers hate

Microsoft Excel is limited for creativity and design but InDesign can create company branded tables from your Excel tables. By importing and setting up table styles Sarahjane can quickly change many tables to look the consistent e.g. the same colour and fonts. They can also flow neatly from page to page. Tables are a fantastic way to layout lots of data neatly.

Interactive PDF designed from a collection of Microsoft Word documents

Artworker uses InDesign to collate Microsoft Word files for print

Sarahjane was given the challenge of combining together a collection of research documents into one simple easy to use interactive file with a contents and appendices. Plus the added bonus of it being small enough to email out to clients around the world.

Adobe InDesign is the perfect tool for the job, placing Microsoft Word files and using hyperlinks on top, creating a 226 page document. The PDF was then made into a smaller file size for emailing.

Remote Freelance Artworker Sarahjane Jackson

Sarahjane enjoys helping out local businesses with flyers, leaflets, web icons and banners. She charges by the hour and can create artwork from a found sample ideas or a sketch.

Sarahjane’s tip to help decide on a size for your flyer or leaflet is to get a print estimate first, for single or double sided. Plus a sample is very handy to touch and feel the quality and to see the size of the font and images.

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!
