Boulder, CO – Windward Studios today released a new ebook that enables companies of all industries to create professional—and scrumptious—business reports. "Beautiful Reports: The Non-Designer’s Guide to Designing Business Documents” is a detailed look at the elements that comprise a business report. This digital book shows readers how to include, lay out and display these elements in the most effective way possible.
The ebook delves into seven basic areas of document design: text, tables, charts, layout, images, colors and navigation. Each chapter serves up tips and techniques on how to create documents that wow customers, colleagues and bosses.
"We wrote this book because our customers, who are experts in their company’s data, told us they needed help designing business reports that best present that data,” said Shirley Clawson, CEO of Windward Studios. "As any chef will tell you, it’s all about presentation. The output must look appetizing as well, or your customers are likely to pass on what you’re trying to serve them.”
"Beautiful Reports” answers such burning questions as:
• Which fonts should I use in my document? • What spacing should I include between elements? • Where should I place data in tables to make the data the easiest to read? • How should I use visual cues to highlight key information? • How should I set report margins so they are most effective? • Where should I store images to best access them in my document? • Which color combinations should I use to enhance readability?
