We love Word...
Actually, that might be a bit strong - rather, we have a fondness and passion for Word!
But, we also understand why you don't, particularly if you are a graphic designer at heart.
If you are working within a graphic design or creative agency, and are involved in re-branding or designing document layouts for clients, unfortunately from time to time, you are likely to hear the ominous phrase - "we need this in Word format". Which means taking your fabulously, gorgeous InDesign masterpiece and converting it into (Aaggggh!) Word.
That's where we can help. We can take your InDesign document and create a Word version of it for you. Of course there are limits, because Word isn't InDesign and there are some things that it just can't do, particularly when targeting a practical and usable Word template.
However, we think that you will be surprised by what is possible. We have had feedback from clients saying that they never knew Word could create such documents - documents that look like they have been produced in InDesign !
Created in InDesign - produced in Word
Are you a creative agency?
Do you provide re-branding services?
Provide Word templates to your clients as part of the re-branding package
By taking the onerous task of Word template creation away from you, you and your team can focus on the creativity, leaving us to worry about the implementation in Word. This means you'll be happier offering one or more Word templates as part of a re-branding package. We can also advise during the design phase, regarding what is possible in Word and any aspects of the design that are likely to present a problem.
Provide your clients with a unique way to work with their documents, increasing productivity, consistency and adherence to corporate style
Our macro enhanced templates provide a tailored Word environment specifically for your clients, allowing people to work in a more efficient way, creating more consistent documentation adhering the corporate style that you have designed for them.
Many clients will never have seen anything like this before, with most not realising that such a mechanism was even possible. In our experience, once people have started using this approach, they really like it and don't go back!
Promote your business every time a client opens a Word document based on a template that you have provided
In addition to the functionality a customer needs or has requested for their customised Word ribbon, it is possible to add an 'About' button, an example of which is shown below.
This button can have your logo on it and launch a dialog box, which could contain contact details, information on upgrading template functionality, or even an image marketing your company's services and linking to your website.
So, every time they use their new Word template, your customer is reminded who provided them with their re-branding and document designs.
