heuristika – a publishing resource

We are in the business of implementing our pre-publication expertise for your benefit. For twenty years we have been working with Desk Top Publishing software (Ventura, Framemaker, Indesign, MSPublisher) in order to help our clients create anything from books to web pages.

Our primary DTP work is in the area of books and brochures, designing to client's specifications and creating new designs to their general brief. Some of these publications are e-publications which leads to our web expertise.

We work with web pages, using PHP, CSS and HTML for the creation of individual pages to specifications within the context of the whole site, sometimes on the basis of our own templates, sometimes on the basis of a client's own requirements. We are also able to maintain sites which others have created, freeing our clients up for their own important work which their web sites make known.

Whatever publications you wish to create, we can advise about, complete or even create them to your specifications within budget and on time.

Heuristika – Electronic Publishing and project management

The revolution computers brought to printing is well known. No longer is a book or anything set by hand – sometimes there is no longer even any ink involved in publications.

Heuristika is able to use the speed of the computer to output your document, so that your publication is available on time and within budget. When everything has been prepared, a book can be sent to the printer within days. This is lightning speed when compared with setting books by hand in hot type.

Once in digital form, an author's prose and poetry can be manipulated quickly and efficiently. Proofing electronically also is possible so that there is no longer the delay of printing galleys and the timeconsuming delivery of reams of printed paper. The author and publisher review files as they will be presented to the printer. At every step, there is a 'signing off' of the copy and proof electronically.

Heuristika involves the publisher from the outset by agreeing the style of the finished pages, setting timings for drafts, and incorporating all changes in the manuscript.

Heuristika will take advantage of DTP technology and techniques for the sake of your publication in a timely manner, whether a short 8-page leaflet or an 8,000-page reference book.
