Happy New Year! We wanted to draw your attention to a project we worked on across much of 2014. The Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO) asked us to design their new internal procurement guide as an e-book. The guide runs about 80 pages and includes a variety of tables. It was first written and designed in English, then translated into Spanish, Portuguese, and French over the course of the year. We created a coordinated series of covers for the different language versions, with subtle color variations, as shown here.
For each book, we created two version for each language, PDF and ePub/Mobi, to give users the widest array of options for using the guide, whether they have a desktop computer, tablet, or Kindle. Although the finished products look quite similar whether PDF or ePub, they’re quite different under the hood. Sensical Design was able to draw on our years of experience producing print and electronic publications to follow best practices, make the process simple, and complete the work on time and on budget.
