We don’t claim to be graphic designers but we know and work with many people who are. Today’s applications of choice for most designers are Adobe Creative Cloud InDesign and Adobe Creative Cloud Illustrator.
Adobe Creative Cloud – InDesign and Illustrator
Calling all frustrated graphic designers
Have you ever created a beautiful, pixel-perfect design for your client using Adobe CC InDesign or Adobe CC Illustrator on your Apple Mac only for them to request a version that they can edit in Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint on their Windows PC?
Tried exporting to RTF with no success? You might even have tried exporting as a PDF and then using Adobe Acrobat to save the PDF as a Word or PowerPoint document. What you end up with may even look vaguely like what you started with but if someone tries editing it with Word or PowerPoint then it quickly falls to pieces!
But don’t despair, we use the latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud on Windows and Mac to dissect your designs and recreate them as fully-functioning, branded Word and PowerPoint templates and documents.
Of course, Word is still only a word processor and does not have all the fantastic design and layout capabilities of InDesign but using our years of experience we can put Word through its paces to create something that looks as great as you intended and that can still be used and edited by the average Word user.
We know how to get the best from:
- Document themes and styles for consistency and ease of use
- Content controls for updating document content
- Ribbon, toolbar and keyboard customisation
- Macro development
- Text boxes (we try to avoid them whenever possible!)
If you’re a designer and would like to discuss the practicality of implementing your designs in Word or PowerPoint then get in touch.
PS See this post if you’d like to try convert InDesign to Word for yourself.
