From time to time, our clients ask us to convey their messages through graphic design. We assisted the Mine Health and Safety Council with the design and layout of their Barring Booklet which is used to train mine workers and managers on Barring Down Practices.
Illustrations convey more meaning compared to plain text, so this booklet had to be eye catching and informative without boring the intended audience.
We also had the opportunity of testing out our new open source graphic design software during this project. We made use of Inkscape (vector graphic design software) and Scribus (Booklet design software). Both these open source alternatives were very easy to work with. Visit our blog for our review of Scribus and Inkscape.
