Do you want your clients to take you seriously? Do your documents stand out and present a uniform, professional picture of your company?
Just as documents full of typos and grammatical errors look unprofessional, so do those that are mismatched or not on-brand with your company colours, fonts, house style or logo.
Integral to Business Branding
Good formatting is integral to your business brand; your fonts, business colours and the formatting of your documents all say something about your business, its performance and professionalism.
Whether you are creating tenders, contracts, or just regularly sending reports or spreadsheets to your clients, they all build a picture.
I can make sure that all of your documents are uniform in the following applications:
- InDesign (.idml files)
House Style and Style Guides
I can create a ‘house style’ (a set format across all of your documents) from your existing documents, or build one from scratch. Make your documents stand out!
If you are a large company and use specific industry words, I can also compile a ‘style guide’ (lists the way in which words and numbers are written e.g. sub-contractor, subcontractor; No.8 or No.[space]8).
