Design a card for each of Ottawa’s skateboard parks. Use the provided files to output a PDF file for each record in the spreadsheet.
Create a card for each skateboard park in the city. The dimensions are half letter, so 8.5” wide x 5.5” tall Make sure you use only Adobe Fonts fonts in your design, so submitting will be simpler.
Each card must have:
- The photo of the park.
- The Facility ID in an inconspicuous location.
- The name of the park.
- The address of the park.
- An indication of the facility type.
- An indication of whether it’s access-controlled. You need to indicate a positive or negative status.
- An indication whether it’s accessible. You need to indicate a positive or negative status.
You need to have each of the types of variables in your file:
- Text variables
- Image variables
- Visibility variables
You’ll need to edit this data file to make it do what you want: swap text, show/hide layers and swap photos. Once the spreadsheet is formatted as you want, export it as a .csv file. That’s the file you’ll import into Illustrator using the script.
Once all of your variables are imported, double-check that everything works properly.
Use the Batch command to export the data sets as Press-Ready PDF files into the provided ‘PDFs’ folder. Save your Illustrator file in place in the ‘Your Exercise’ folder. The .csv file should be in that folder too.
