The client was after a fixed layout epub conversion to be used for client presentations which is what we produced within a short period of time. We received the pdf manuscript which contained all contents of the book including the cover. We worked with multiple images during the conversion phase and produced a successful result for our client.

About the project:
We converted this hand-illustrated children’s picture book from pdf to fixed layout epub and mobi. This book contains illustrations on every page which were designed by the Author, Dave Murphy. All images were optimised to keep the size of the ebook versions down but retain high image quality. Once we got the green light from the customer, we then distributed the ebooks to Amazon and Apple. It was a pleasure working with Dave and we hope to hear from him again in the near future. ...continue reading I Like My Dog

This book was converted from pdf format to fixed layout epub. Even though this project was pretty straightforward, we had to work with quite a few images. When working with high resolution images we have to ensure that we keep the highest possible quality but optimise the images as much as possible to keep the file size down.

The pdf manuscript supplied by the customer didn’t have live text so we first OCR’d the book before doing the conversion. This book was converted to a fixed layout enhanced ebook where we included an embedded audio voice over which reads out aloud as the reader flips through the book. We also distributed the ebook to all 4 major vendors.

About the project
This was a reasonably straightforward conversion project, using the pdf files that we were supplied with and creating a fixed layout book. We worked with the customer to get the type and images looking good so that the book worked on multiple devices, rather than just focusing on one type of device. We then distributed it on Apple, Kobo, Amazon and Google. We are pleased with how the finished product looks. ...continue reading Fairy Dell

Contributor: Hema Maps

About the project
4WD + Camping Escapes - South East Queensland was already a printed book when Hema Maps approached us to convert it into an ebook. While consulting with them we decided that this book would look best as a fixed layout. The book has a massive number of images and tables, footnotes, and map cross-references that had to carry through successfully to the ebook. When the book was converted we then assisted Hema Maps to distribute the ebook on their website www.hemamaps.com.au. ...continue reading 4WD + Camping Escapes – South East Queensland

This project from the University of Queensland's Coral Watch projectinvolved converting a richly-designed 263-page book to fixed layout ePub. It was designer Diana Kleine's vision to also enhance the ebook version with video files. We set about recreating the layout for ePub, testing on our devices and working with Diana to create the right interface and user experience for playing the embedded videos. Once the final draft was approved, we then distributed their eBook to the Apple iTunes store. It was great working with Diana and we are glad that the Coral Reefs and Climate Change ebook turned out to be such a fantastic product!

About the project

Glen Holman, a talented member of our team, illustrated Corporate Survival then converted it to ePub and mobi. We then aggregated it to major ebook vendors. We also designed a website for the author and provided some marketing services.

About the book
The Pocket Guide offers a view of corporate life which is honest, funny and refreshingly different. It is essential reading for anyone working for or thinking of joining a large company or multinational. It will lead you through the corporate minefield to career success.

You begin as a new recruit and end as an established business leader. As you make this journey, you learn about the real role of Human Resources (the KGB of corporate life), how to manage your workload (without becoming a 24/7 employee) and are warned about the personal qualities and behaviours (such as courage, integrity and initiative) which may lead to career failure.

On the way you are introduced to office politics, the management class system, a new corporate language (with real meanings provided), and the best way to manage your sex life at company conferences. The importance of socialising and networking is considered.

The Guide contrasts the lofty goals of organisational visions, values and mission statements with the tawdry realities of business life and the cynical disbelief of employees. For the first time in print, the real purpose of corporate policies and procedure is explained as well as the difficulty of working with human beings rather than robots.

You learn about the art of appearing to make decisions without actually doing so and how to survive in the labyrinth of a multinational matrix management structure.

Finally, there are a few serious words in the last chapter as food for thought.

"A witty insider exposes the fake gloss of corporate life while sharply separating the smart from the stupid. HR be scared!"

Glenn Daniel. Nova Entertainment (Glenn Daniel is a well known Sydney radio journalist and winner of 2014 Best News Presenter (FM Metro) award as well as 2014 Brian White Memorial Award)

"A highly entertaining and in many instances factual stroll through Corporate Life. A must read for all current and budding Corporate Executives especially those with their eyes on the top HR role"

J.T. (A retired senior executive)
