Join John McWade for an in-depth discussion in this video Transform a product sheet: Put your words here, not there, part of Graphic Design Tips & Tricks.
- Hi everybody, John McWade,…senior author here at lynda.com.…What we're looking at today is a product sheet…that's definitely a before.…Its purpose is to identify the connection points…in the back panel of this audio product.…The good news is that the data is all here…and correct.…There's a numbered list,…corresponding numbers on the product,…and the company information at the bottom.…The bad news, besides being unattractive,…is that it has a functional problem.…You have to read the numbered list,…then refer to the corresponding number on the product…to see what it's referencing,…or go the other way, you read a number on the product,…then run to the list to see what it is.…
So it's back and forth you go,…1, check it out, 2, check it out,…3, check it out, and so on.…That's a lot of unnecessary hassle.…Here's a better way to do it,…erase the page, then place the product…in the middle of the page as big as you can make it.…I'm gonna pause here and point out…that I've added a reflection.…This isn't necessary, but I did it to make less utility,…
