We need layout and design templates of the workbooks we give to participants of our workshops. These printed A4 workbooks are made by combining a number of 'topics' into one 'module' based on the customers needs. They are designed to guide a participant through a face to face facilitation of the content. They have critical information, take out points, visual models of ideas as well as space to take notes and add personal reflections.
We have provided the whole workbook (for context) but marked 6 pages for redesign (Marked by the word TEMPLATE in red) , which showcase a variety of page layouts such as text heavy, visual models, contents page, note taking etc. (Please feel free to showcase as many pages as needed to express your concept)
Also included are the Reference notes which are sent to the participants after the workshop. These reference notes are an extended written version of the content presented by the facilitator. Please use these if necessary to add more content or special points as examples for the design layouts.
Please pay particular attention to the look and feel of the visual models as this will form a guide for other similar assets.
The key is to provide visual hierarchy to the information shown - important points, extra information, model descriptions etc. Also important is a consistency to the navigation around the document.
The design should take inspiration from our other document templates, current branding and the eLearning module recently created. (all attached).
Included is a copy of the generic front cover which is used in combination with a heat binding machine and plastic sleeve to present the document. (we are happy with this design so no need to modify it - unless you feel its absolutely necessary)
Once we have the templates designed, the workbooks will be modified in Adobe Page maker and printed in-house on a laser colour printer.
