O’Reilly Japan - CSS Secrets

This book was made entirely with Vivliostyle, designed in CSS, and laid out automatically with Vivliostyle’s rendering engine. Fitting of the books theme, we took full advantage of CSS’s capabilities to make a beautiful volume.

Parts catalog

Dec. 2015–

Project for parts catalog of Panasonic

This project aims at unifying the production process of printed parts catalog and that of a website. We prepare parts images and specification tables for a large number of parts, manage them with a CMS, and produce both printed catalogs and web pages via HTML/CSS formatting.

Complex tables / Measurement units

Parts specification tables contain detailed data. Cells in such tables require fine adjustment such as decimal alignment and consistent use of measurement units. Vivliostyle allows such fine adjustment via CSS.

Automatic generation of condensed fonts

When a headline in Japanese is too long, Vivliostyle automatically creates condensed fonts so that the headline fits in a single line.

How It Works

Existing workflow

Web and printing are separate, so two production flows are needed.
With each step requiring a different set of data and collaborator, there are more opportunities for errors and lost time.

Vivliostyle workflow

Everyone collaborates on a central data-set, which is managed by your CMS.

With a single data-set ready for production, print and web can be launched simultaneously.
