Publication Design is any print or digital multi-page document (white papers, annual reports, booklets, catalogs, ebooks, interactive fiction, etc.). Because of their size and being spread across many pages, publications require more planning, custom image creation, and shuffling of elements than about any other design projects. Their complexity also of production, publication design should be left to experienced professionals like Company Man Design.
As Google puts it, a white paper is an “authoritative report giving information or proposals on an issue.” It is a multi-page document that is too often thought of as dry and direct, but white papers present your organization opportunities to influence readers, whether current or prospective customers.
Due to their complexity and volume of content, annual reports rival website design in their magnitude. As such, they tend to fall into two categories: poorly designed, usually because the client organization relies on a cheap designer or a design firm that has bid so low that the work falls in priority; or well-designed but ultra-expensive because the client organization has gone with the biggest national design firms. Let Company Man Design produce a report that maintains and grows shareholder confidence.
In addition to the shared considerations of publication design, catalogs present additional unique design challenges: managing large amounts of data; coordinating quality, consistent product and/or portrait photography; and developing multiple templates for all common page types. Let Company Man Design produce a well-designed catalog that targets your customer demographic.
