The evolution of information technology has turned the assumptions of where work happens inside out. The typical 9 to 5 grind spent in an office building is giving way to the virtual work environment, turning mobile devices into the new 24/7 home office. In the midst of this transition, a balance must be struck that is able to meet the emerging demands of a new, blended workspace. Naturally, that includes the accessibility of your corporate templates. To stay within branding guidelines, employees need to know where exactly they can find the most recent company templates. Ideally, they should be accessible everywhere, from every device, around the clock – no matter if staff are working from a hotel while pitching sales, sitting in the metro creating a new PowerPoint presentation on their iPad, or working from home. Restricted access will only encourage employees to work with outdated documents they have stored somewhere on their computer, or to just start designing their own – potentially using Comic Sans and yellow bullet points to make them look nice. And there goes the corporate identity.
Aligning type correctly is important in any design. Because most invitations dont contain long paragraphs of copy, its best to align short phrases to the center of your design. Flushing (or justifying) your text to one side or another may make your composition look off-balance. In Editor you can simply toggle the alignment controls on the left side of the app to set your text. Ampersands have a timeless yet stylish appeal with their effortless swashes and terminals. Instead of just typing “and” between names or other info, try incorporating ampersands. They can inject some serious personality to an invitation. I am a huge fan of ampersands, and I want you to love them too, so I have compiled a selection of twelve free fonts with absolutely stunning ampersands. Layer them behind two names or combine the names in a unique way to highlight the ampersand. The options are endless!
Assuming that most users are not design or tech savvy when it comes to using templates is a safer bet than expecting too much from busy staff. Dont give them a hard time by producing overly-sophisticated templates with poor user guidance, leaving users to their own resources to make the whole thing work. Basic is the key word here. Why? Its obvious that frustration levels will rise exponentially as complexity increases with advanced features and style elements. Helping your employees avoid going astray and creating their own templates, just because they dont know how to use the fancy ones provided, is obviously key. Keep it simple. The more intuitively your templates are built, the easier it will be for your staff to apply them and stay on-brand. To make using templates even more effortless, provide as much user guidance as possible so employees dont feel lost along the way.
