10 Resource Guides for ACMO
Project specifications: Design a template for ten guides, design for target audience, design and lay out pages, meet client approval and requirements, manage a complicated production process
Client: Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (2017–2018)
Project: Create 10 Resource Guides for ACMO’s members: Financial Management, New Buildings, Regulations Volume 1, Governance, Building Components Volume 1 and Volume 2, Dealing with Difficult People, Ethics, Contract Management, and Annual Planning
Project Management: ACMO required the production, from editing to printing, of 10 Resource Guides for their members. We created (using InDesign) a set of page mock-ups that included different design elements such as headers, chapter titles, page numbering, etc., for the client to choose from. We then used the selected template for the entire series. When the text of each Resource Guide had been edited, we flowed the document into InDesign and created styles for the table of contents, chapter titles, headings, footnotes, text boxes, bullet lists, and glossary entries. Tables, figures, and photos were inserted at the appropriate spots in the text. The functioning table of contents will be easily applied for future online or ereader viewing. We coordinated with our client and with the printer to ensure files were ready for production to meet ACMO’s publishing goals.
