BlackBriar for Pages - Business Basics

Business Basics
BlackBriar for Pages includes the everyday essentials for business, in a crisp, minimalist style that accents the more complex designs of the Brochures, Newsletter, or the namesake Keynote Theme.

The BlackBriar templates for Pages, like their Keynote counterparts, were designed as a study in contrasts, a veritable Little Black Dress that rises to any occasion or setting with impeccable taste & style. We developed BlackBriar for Pages in the same spirit, with interlocking contrasts of color and object accents framing a distinctive, stepped-hierarchal grid designed to maximize clarity and minimize distraction. The editorial-style foundation effortlessly grids everything from simple photo essays to dense, text-heavy narratives - all blended with color-neutral accents and an eye-catching, stacked-hierarchal metabar that provides clear wayfinding cues for every page. The balance of structure, symmetry and negative space makes your content take center stage while maintaining unity and order throughout your entire document system.

The core BlackBriar for Pages package includes a full suite of up to fifteen complete templates (Pro Edition) – from the basics of Letterhead, Memo and Envelope templates to Posters, Brochures and the magazine-inspired Newsletter – giving you a wide range of document types and layout options to choose from, whether you're preparing an Agenda for the weekly meeting or assembling next season's Quarterly Report. An extensive suite of layout options — including Light/Dark variants & a full selection of Spread optimizations — provide you with an unparalleled selection of tailored alternatives for key layout archetypes. The accompanying chart styles include both Light & Dark sets of color-based palettes, along with a tonal Greyscale option perfect for making callout/contrast charts. And the entire BlackBriar framework is optimized for everything the modern Pages architecture offers, including a a full suite of color, type and table styles that make it a snap to tailor your documents to your unique, individual needs.
