Ever wonder what happens when design meets practicality? Enter Timplates, partnering with Melhuish on a colossal two-year venture with the NSW Telco Authority. Buckle up; this one's a ride.
This wasn't your run-of-the-mill project; it was a marathon spanning over two years, birthing 12 templates for the NSW Telco Authority. Consistency was key, and each template had to sing in harmony, dancing to the same language styles and colours. Throw in some technical curveballs – an EDM template in Word (not Outlook), duotone images in PowerPoint – and you've got our attention.
To keep the design ship sailing smoothly through the waves of time, we applied stringent quality control and meticulous filing. But the real showstopper? Duotone images. Ever tried colouring them in Word or PowerPoint? We did. And it worked like a charm. We even convinced Microsoft Word to play nice – a feat in itself.
The secret sauce? Microsoft's Recolour feature – our trusted ally. We sprinkled clear instructions over the images, guiding users through the magical world of theme colouring. It wasn't just about making templates; it was about empowering users to own the process.

Oh, did we mention Quick Parts? A nifty feature in the Word template, lets us create a modular page layout based on separate tables for the EDM. Need a different configuration? No sweat. Quick Parts to the rescue.

Colouring in Word and PowerPoint isn't just fun; it's a powerful tool, and we seized the chance to flaunt its legitimacy in a template build.
