Always a pleasure working with bella!! Great work as always.
MY ORIGINAL AGREEMENT WITH MACHDO WAS TO COMPLETE (5) BOOKS; BUT THE WORK MACHUDO HAS DONE FOR ME HAS SO VASTLY EXCEEDED MY HIGHEST HOPES & EXPECTATIONS. THAT I DECIDED TO PAY HIM THE FULL $3000 FOR THE FIRST (3) BOOKS; AND $1000 FOR BOOKS (4); (5) & BOOK (6) GOING FORWARD. THE JOB TOOK LONGER THAN I EXPECTEDK BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE OF MY MANY FINE TUNING LAST MINUTE CHANGES. MACHUDO HAS THE PATIENCE OF MOTHER TERESA; AND THE CREATIVE, PERFECTIONIST ARTISTIC BRILLIANCE OF LEONARDO DA VINCI. THE LAYOUT & EVERY ASPECT OF (3) BOOKS WITH A TOTAL OF OVER (2000) PAGES & (550) COLOR IMAGES; WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO IMRPOVE UPON. PLEASE LOOK AT HIS FINISHED WORK NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH INGRAM SPARK. THE WORK ON THESE (3) BOOKS IS NOW OVER 99% PERCENT FINISHED; THERE ARE A FEW MINOR DETAILS REMAINING; BUT I DIDN'T WANT MACHUDO ; WHO HAS A LOVELY WIFE AND (11) YEAR OLD DAUGHTER; TO WAIT ANY LONGER DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON FOR PAYMENT. MY TRUST IN MACHUDO'S BEST PRACTICES, BEST EFFORT & INEGRITY; IS ABSOLUTE & TOTAL; BECAUSE HE HAS PROVEN IT TO ME IN OVER 2,000 PAGES OF IMMACULATE FINISHED WORK. AND THAT'S JUST A SNIPPET OF WHAT HE'S DONE FOR ME. MY FASHION PROFESSIONAL WIFE WILL BE GETTING HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR MACHUDO'S WIFE & DAUGHTER AS A TOKE OF OUR DEEP ADMIRATION FOR HIME; WE LIVE IN EAST NORTPORT ON THE NORTH SHORE OF LONG ISLAND' IN NEW YORK; AND MACHUDO; A NATIVE OF INDIA; WITH HIS EQUALLY TALENTED BROTHER; LIVES IN TH COSMOPOLITAN EXPATRAIE CAPITAL OF OMAN, IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA. MACHUDO IS 12,000 MILES AWAY FROM ME; WE COMMUNICATE SEVERAL TIME A DAY. 99 DESIGNS MADE THIS POSSIBLE. DAY; BEST, RICHARD E. GLICK (860) 218-4668 . PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PRINT THIS TESTIMONIAL REVIEW IN ANY & ALL 99 DESIGNS PROMOTIONAL FORMATS. NOTHIG I'VE WRITTEN BECASUE I'M BEING NICE; BUT BECAUSE I AM AT A LOSS FOR WORDS TO DESCRIBE WHAT IS TRUE. SHAKESPEARE DIDN'T HAVE MACHUDO. I DID

Our TripGuides present creative daily itineraries in your favorite destinations. With custom routes, thoughtful local insight & expertly-curated recommendations, we design incredible days to help you make the most of every moment. Previously, our TripGuides have just been housed within our web app. Now, we're expanding to the physical realm with pocket-sized TripGuides that compliment the app. We're looking for a super creative inDesign template that we can re-use & customize per-destination.
Our target is upper millennials (25-35 year olds) and the people who love them.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I'm looking for a reusable inDesign template for our TripGuides that I can easily customize to the destination & clients.
Based on my current mock-up, this consists of 8 pages total, however we are open to more or less pages:
Table of Contents (1 page)
Place Intro (2 pages)
1 Itinerary Template (2 pages)
1 Map Template (2 pages)
The booklet will be 3.5" x 5" inches. It will be printed on non-glossy & in full color. The goal? To visually tell the story of a trip & make it something pretty enough to present as a gift or keep as a souvenir.
The attached TripGuide Template InDesign doc shows all these pages with their necessary content. We are not married to any of the current design, but it does reflect the artistic/boutique tone we like.
In a nutshell:
The Cover Template: should sport the trip name (customized per-client) and should highlight a photo or artwork that celebrates the destination.
The Table of Contents Page: Lists the titles of the daily agendas
The Day Intro Template (spans 2 pages): Introduces a day & has a paragraph of content introducing the day.
The Itinerary Template (spans 2 pages): Lays out the ideal day step by step with a picture and a small blurb.
The Map Template (spans 2 pages): Has a map with the recommendations for that day plotted, plus a list of the place names with their address in a legend.
I am open to ideas in regards to everything from imagery to fonts to color schemes, to you-name-it! My amateur inDesign attempt is attached and should help communicate the style we dig, along with our logo and some "frills" I like from our designer Vichcraft (http://www.vichcraft.com/) who did some hand drawn elements.
Thanks in advance for saving the day with your mad inDesign chops!
