Voice | Post Haste
Voice Brand Agency has offices in both New Zealand and Australia. For this particular project we worked through the Auckland office to build a pre-populated 42 page Word template.
Project scope & features
- Built for Word on PC
- Three versions of an A4 Word template
- Pre-populated with drop-in digital cover
- Three A4 Word templates
The template was to be used by a number of people in various non-office environments. It had to be robust and easy to use, with some particular functionality requirements and pre-populated with editable text and images.
It was important to work closely with Voice to ensure the particular requirements worked as expected. These included a drop-in cover, easily removable instructions and areas of turn-on/turn-off content.
The final document would be both printed and bound into a pre-printed cover and saved out as a PDF, so the drop-in cover had to work without impacting the page numbers.
The instructional text was all set in one content control field with simple instructions on how to delete it.
To switch on/off headings and paragraphs, we used Outline levels, with instructions on how to hide the secondary levels below the heading. The hardest aspect of this feature was ensuring the paragraph spacing remained consistent.
Why we liked it
The specific requirements needed in this template presented some interesting conundrums. Some additional shorter versions were needed post-delivery, so we had another opportunity to work with the template after it had been used, which is always useful.
