My company would like someone to create a design template that can be loaded with text within a database or other. We are open to suggestions. This would be an off line program and used by our banner designers only.
Please see our web site at [url removed, login to view] for examples of what we do and you can see an example of our layouts. All we are concerned with for this project is just the text for the first name, last name & player number.
Currently we are designing banners in Corel Draw and Illustrator by cutting and pasting the names over and under, above or below, or to the sides of the individual player image. This takes way too much time.
Here is what is needed:
1. The names are gathered in a form mail however could easily be converted to a database or spread sheet on our end.
2. The program would allow us to apply the text fields from the database or spreadsheet file to the design template with one step.
3. We would have many choices regarding the template layout. This would entail a template for straight text, curve text, vertical text, and other.
4. Once the text is applied to the template the font or color or size of the text can be changed to whole template at the same time.
5. Each first and last name & number will be grouped to allow easy moving and adjustment within the final design.
6. For the final banner layout we would rather work in Corel Draw rather than Illustrator. We could copy the final template configuration into the Corel or Illustrator is required.
Please let us know if you have any questions and how you can help us with this project.
