Composition

Composition, or page layout, is where it all began for The Format Group. We know the difference between kerning and tracking, between letter spacing and word spacing, between a widow and an orphan. What’s more, we actually care about these distinctions. We’re big fans of automation, shortcuts, scripts, extensions, and plug-ins—anything that makes our work quicker and cleaner. Our menu of composition services includes:

  • Template creation
  • Manuscript clean-up and styling
  • Editorial templates
  • Technical art (tables, charts, graphic organizers)
  • Page layout
  • Customization for alternate versions (e.g., state-specific or teacher editions)
  • File management and archiving
