Develop a suite of Microsoft Word templates able to be used by staff to generate a range of different corporate documents consistent in style and appearance.
Standards Australia is the nation’s peak non-government Standards organisation. It is charged by the Commonwealth Government to meet Australia’s need for contemporary, internationally aligned Standards and related services.
The client required a range of templates that staff could use to produce common document types including letters, faxes, circulars and memos. The templates had to be robust enough to enable the user to customise the content while retaining Standards Australia’s corporate branding.
Red Pony was able to produce a suite of templates based on Standards Australia’s very exacting brief and layout specifications.
Red Pony began the project by developing a master template and within it all the styles and formatting for the document suite. Next, we created a prototype of each template based on this master version.
We tested the prototype templates with different operating systems and versions of the Microsoft Word software to ensure cross-compatibility.
Red Pony used Microsoft Word’s built-in forms feature in the creation of the template for a legal deed. This solution enables users to input information specific to the document (name, date, address, etc.) while preventing modification of the standard terms of the deed.
