Publications and toolkits FAQs

In addition to offering strategic recommendations on how copy can work better or be more consistent for your audience, we often help clients massage their existing or draft content to make it more engaging and effective. Looking for more in-depth copywriting (e.g., an entire annual report)? We work with a few expert copywriters we can connect you with.
Yes! We can design in just about any language. We’re experts at laying out content in English and French, as well as Algonquin, Spanish, German, and Arabic, to name a few. Tip: Different languages take up varying amounts of space, so connecting with us early can help you understand how each language will affect your project.
Accessibility is really important to us, too. We can create PDF files that are 100% UA/PDF-compliant, EPUB 3.0 W3C documents, and also work to WCAG 2.0 AA standards (and some AAA if needed) to improve the accessibility of web content across all devices for people with a wide range of abilities.
Our quick answer: it depends. Making a document accessible is not just about hardwiring accessible features into it after the fact — design also plays a crucial role in document accessibility. If your document’s design doesn’t comply with accessible standards for colour, contrast, font sizes, legibility, or readability, we may need to redesign it first. Of course, we’d be more than happy to review your document to determine whether or not a redesign is required.
Absolutely! We design publications of varying lengths with varying types of content — from smaller brochures to larger reports to novels. One thing to note is that the length of a final, designed document will likely be longer than a text document. Once we design the document using proper layout and spacing, accessible font sizes, graphics, images, etc., it’s reasonable to expect your page count to double.

Publications can range from magazines and books to annual reports and brochures to UA-compliant PDFs and EPUBs. Here are some of the most common questions we get about them. Still need answers? Get in touch anytime.
