Writing for Business and Industry



Design of a report

You can consider this as the course mid-term. It's worth 10% of your grade.


Using the design skills you have acquired thus far in the course, format this file so that is would be presentable to your boss.This is a design assignment, not a writing one. You do not need to make changes to the text content. (I've played around with the context, so the paragraphs may not be coherent.)

You'll need to consider:

Write a separate 1-2 page (about 600-700 words) paper that explains and justifies your design and formatting choices. In other words, why did you pick the font you did, why did you decide to use a bar graph, why did you decide to format the headings as you did, etc. Don't just say you used a 18 point font for the heading; explain WHY you picked 18 point bold Arial and why it's a good choice.
