Budget Books: Cook County, The City of Chicago, The CC Forest Preserve
Clarity Partners is a consulting firm in Chicago. My role as InDesign Lead was to streamline the editing of huge (500 page plus) budget books, saving the clients time as well as money. The Hyperion reporting team would batch output hundreds of files to a server. I set up the process so the reports auto updated within InDesign every time a change was made to the entire batch. In addition to making this process faster and easier, I upgraded the look of the books and trained both the editors (financial staff) and the in-house design staff in the InDesign/InCopy editing workflow. This workflow was implemented for the Cook County Budget Department, The Forest Preserve Budget Department and the City of Chicago.
