Question Ability to create layouts in word


Hi,
I am a graphic designer and I have only ever used word to make basic text documents. I know you can add images, headers, styles and other visual elements to a word document, however I am not sure of the extent to which you can use word to create visual layouts with a number of images and sections of text. I usually work with adobe programs to create these layouts however I have been asked to use word to create them. I'm not sure if what I am asking is clear but if anyone has used word to create flashy layouts could you let me know what sort of techniques you can use apart from just copying and pasting images in and doing text wraps?
Thanks.

As you are using MSO 2007, you'll find that there is LOTS that you can do to create layouts in Word - to start you off:

All of the following can be found on the Insert tab:
  • Look in the Text section and click on Quick Parts and select the Building Blocks Organiser
  • Then have a look in the Pages section for Cover Page
  • Finally, look in the Illustrations section and have a play around in there.

After playing around in there for a while, I'm sure you'll see some of what you can do and be able to go from there. However, for a bit more info, why not go search the individual parts that I've listed over on YouTube! They have some great instructional videos over there!

Hope that helps get you started!
