Design development often eats up a big chunk of our time. In book
design, this can get quite painful if you have long or messy documents
and complex typography ahead. This six-hour workshop will cover a
workflow anchored in Planning, Style Mapping, Grep, Grep Styles, Scripts
and other powerful InDesign functionalities that result in hundreds, if
not thousands, of spot-on typographic pages designed in less than a
day.



Firstly you will learn a "divide and conquer" strategy to prepare and
handle virtually any kind of Word document for the workflow with ease.
Then we will explore basic and advanced style mapping; footnote, endnote
and side note setups; chained cleaning routines with Grep;
automatically refined micro-typography with Grep Styles and other simple
yet powerful paragraph style attributes. You will also be introduced to
using scripts in InDesign – as it is not possible to reach this speed
with accuracy by hand. But it's straightforward, you will see.



To put this workflow to the test, we will use a real production Word
document from Penguin/Companhia das Letras to do the design development
of the whole book, more than 500 pages, in a couple of minutes. All with
precise styling and micro-typography already in place.



The workflow is based in Word and InDesign, so you need to have both
installed. Latest versions are preferred, but Word 2010+ and InDesign
CS6+ will do fine. The workshop is online and very hands on, so it is
recommended that you use two screens: one to watch, other to work. Mac
and PC friendly.
