Long document design
These are examples of long document design I have done in the past. In both these examples, data was brought in from an excel file or database, and processed with a script I wrote to generate InDesign markup, complete with anchored text boxes and any associated symbols for each title.
The documents were designed to be highly functional resources and information rich. As such they do not have a lot of imagery and colour. The intent was for the design to make information easy to find and parse.
