Project description

I'm looking for a user friendly, easy to use draft list for my craft beer centric neighborhood bar. Seems like a simple task but I don't like any design I or my partners come up with. It's GOT to be user friendly. We'll likely update and print 5-7 times per week and we can't take time to format when text length for new beers isn't the same as the last. It's got to be pliable but sturdy. Kind of like an artistic Excel spreadsheet (maybe it actually is?) but doesn't look like excel. Maybe it's an excel spreadsheet that lives in a pdf? 

Here's what is must have-
Categories- (examples)
IPA's/Double IPA's
PALE ALEs
Witbiers
Stouts 
Brown Ales
Wild Ales
Belgian

Descriptors
Styles
Brewery
ABV
Price
HH Price

    • @MvE Hey man, I like this one. Can you put some beer in each category so I can see what it would look like? This is an excel file, yes?

    • MvE

      @kenny_casciato Hi Kenny, yes this is an excel file as well. I will add some beers & categories etc. And send you a link here.

    • MvE

      @kenny_casciato Hi Kenny, I added the files to DropBox. If the excel file does not appear correctly on your system, please let me know so we can work that out. Here is the link; https://www.dropbox.com/sh/d36l4ggedm4ldtd/AAC6a8_DlL5EJjuxBg0L8eY6a?dl=0 (if you open the excel in preview mode on DropBox itself, it will give a wrong display of the document) Greets, Milan.

  • Hi, dear @kenny_casciato!
    Check pkease my entry #5. It's in Excel, all fonts I used are free for commercial use so you can easily change all the info by yourself!
    Feel free to comment!
    P.S. there are tiny octopuses as a background pattern =)
    • @Anastasiia how will this look on normal printer paper?

    • @kenny_casciato You can check it in entries #8 and #9 (horizontal and vertical versions). It's standard letter size paper. Also you can choose to print or not the empty lines.

    • @kenny_casciato Done! The link is: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1EINbr_HQ6Z7f1PgudjYhbUAC8u5p0kS_ I'm not sure about correctness of filling but in any case you can get the general look. The excel file is under the same password. The font for the main datas is lato font. You shoud download it as well for correct file displaying. The link to download is: http://www.latofonts.com/lato-free-fonts/

    • @kenny_casciato I'm so sorry abou that but I have realized that if you don't have the background picture on your computer you can't see it in the Excel document. Do you have this problem? I prepare another folder with background picture inside. You can easily add it by yourself. The link is: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fGrObDj4YVxBqwoy1shZmdz8lXO0gtxT You need to go to Insert - Header&Footer - Create Header - Picture - Browse picture. And than you should to choose these background picture from my folder. Hope it will be not a problem.

  • MvE
    My design for the contest.

    I can deliver you this in PDF/DOCX(word) so it's easily editable. This design has a transparent background (less ink usage when printed regularly) #27
    • @MvE Is there a way to make this an excel file within the document so you can keep the design element but also lock the excel portion so my staff doesn't destroy the integrity?

    • MvE

      @kenny_casciato Yes, I can just export it from PDF to DOCX or PDF to EXCEL or have an EXCEL document within the PDF.

    • MvE

      @kenny_casciato I'm creating a PDF right now with an excel sheet embedded into it. That way the header and footer are locked. And when you edit the data in the excel sheet, it's can be linked and edited automatically within the PDF. Will probably take another hour or so, and I'll upload it to a server so you can see the results. Greets

    • MvE

      @kenny_casciato Here you can see the different kinds of formats. It is possible to have a PDF auto-update. But it requires a set-up on your own system to do this continuously. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7l6tix3bzskc7tk/AACfQwrassbA1Nl_3MdXMcm8a?dl=0

      @kenny_casciato I changed the format I tiny bit (so it fits better in my opinion) I noticed you combined some styles, so I made separate sections for them. Let me know if I can edit something, or you wish to test something else. Greets, Milan. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/v9psfc8dcvwmdnm/AAC1RHK3y826SCKeia1Vfj9na?dl=0

  • unique and different design i hope you like it......need feedback #16
  • Made in EXCELL, very easy to use! #10
  • Is that similar to what you looking for? I was made it in EXCEL, so, it is very easy to use. #1
    • @Asiral I think this is a good start but the colors a little dreary. Also, that logo isn't our colors or design any longer. We've changed to livelier octopus with better color.

  • about #4

    i tried photoshop and then made the excel version #4
    please tell me if there is anything i can revise . thx :)
    the preview is pretty blur and i recommend viewing the design full.
    • @timtan.3311 I like this design but it might end up taking up too much space and also might be hard to read.
