Guidelines for publications in Word

Guidelines for covers in Word

The design templates in Word allow users to work creatively with the design line at a non-professional level. The templates allow everyone to quickly and easily produce both covers and content for publications.

The templates ensure that all the design principles are complied with. Publications in Word are produced using an ordinary colour printer, which is why the design does not reach the edge of the sheet.

Publication covers
In the Word templates, it is possible to work with the following cover versions in A4, A5 and M65:

  • Publication with image
  • Publication with fifth element
  • Publication with image and fifth element
  • Publication with text only

Background and colours

Generally speaking, publication covers produced in Word always have a white background.

It is certainly possible to create a cover in AU-blue together with a colour image. Alternatively, you can also work with duotone images.

Guidelines for content

Content – A4 and A5

Generally speaking, publication content produced in Word always has a white background. All text in A4 and A5 in-house publications is set up in two columns. Headings and quotes can fill three columns, while indexes etc. can ideally use the four-column grid.

Images can be placed in two, three or four columns.

At the top of each content page is a horizontal bar which draws the reader's attention to page numbers and other information about the publication in question.

Content – M65

All text in M65 publications is set up in a single column. Images can be placed in either one or two columns. Here, a horizontal bar also draws the reader's attention to page numbers and other information about the publication.

Guidelines for publications in InDesign

Guidelines for covers

In the InDesign templates (as in the Word templates), it is possible to work with the following cover versions in A4, A5 and M65:

  • Publication with image
  • Publication with fifth element
  • Publication with image and fifth element
  • Publication with text only

For A4 and A5 covers, it is also possible to work with front page text boxes. The boxes can be in colour or 75% transparency and in various sizes.

Guidelines for content – A4 and A5

The design generally follows the principles for content prepared in Word. However, greater scope for creativity is also allowed here. Among other things, it is possible to work with coloured pages and spreads.
