You want to contribute to Wall-Skills and create 1-pagers? Great, send them to email@example.com.
Here’s our Style Guide (as of Dec 2013):
Our PDFs have either a white or a light green background (#e1ebac).
In white PDFs we use Wall-Skills-turquoise (#65aaa9) or dark green (#0c3838) for titles and grey (#171919) for running text.
On light green, we use #0c807d for titles and grey (#171919) or dark green (#0c3838) for running text.
Minimum font size is 12px. We use the Droid family of fonts:
The preview image needs to be exactly 596 x 842 pixels big. Otherwise the homepage has strange empty spots, because the preview images don’t tile nicely.
The middle of the preview image will appear on the homepage – from about 190 px down to 640 px. We try to place something unique in this area so that people can tell the difference between 1-pagers and easily find what they are looking for. Ideally the title is also in this area.
Corinna uses Illustrator. Roland uses LibreOffice.
