Uh-oh. And now the fun begins and the preferred favorites are listed (shouted).

Speaking for myself only, it's FrameMaker all the way.

Subject: Page layout resources


Hello

We're looking at publishing a suite of marketing and pre-sales docs that need to be as flash as anything the big multinationals we compete with can produce.



We've had front covers professionally designed, but the pages with actual content on still just look like Word docs. (Word docs with fancy, coloured headings, but Word docs all the same).



As Word guru in residence it's fallen to me to stop the Word docs looking like Word docs.



Do you know of any resources for learning how to do page design *for printed docs*? Or any tips? Or publicly available examples I can be inspired by? I've tried Google but found only resources for designing websites. 



These docs will likely be distributed as PDF so my constraint would be that I'd have to stay within the ballpark that would allow DIY printing.



Thanks in advance,

V
