For this project, I am requiring the designer to create a design for our technical documentation.
Occasionally, we work with clients one on one, and hand them different APIs, such as XML APIs. We have all seen XML APIs before. Ours is no different.
What we need is someone to create us a nice looking documentation template with dumby text so that we can distribute it with any XML APIs that we have. This way our clients can understand how to implement our APIs.
The template can be designed in any popular software, such as Photoshop, Illustration, PaintShop PRO, Microsoft Word, etc. At the end, there must be a way to convert it to PDF, as we will distibute our documentation in PDF format.
I am attaching 4 other technical documentations that I like from similar companies doing similar things. I'd like our documentation to include the following:
1. A cover page with a title of the documentation.
2. Our logo on at least the cover page (and optionally any subsequent pages).
3. A table of contents
4. The actual documentation.
You will see 1-4 usually on all 4 examples that I am attaching. Ours would be very similar. Certain sections of the documentation (like actual code), would have different colors or fonts. I'd like something similar.
I am also attaching our logos in different colors. Use any color logos - whichever will work best.
Good luck to all!!! :)
