Horizontal Merger Guidelines Booklet and eBook

In August of 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission released new Horizontal Merger Guidelines. However, they only issued the Guidelines online via HTML and PDF. Realizing people within the industry might want to access the guidelines via alternate methods, Bates White set forth to fill in those gaps. In the Spring of 2011 I created both a print version of the guidelines that was used as a promotional handout, as well as an ebook version that could be accessed through all major e-readers, including Kindle (.mobi file), and Nook, iPad, Kobu, and Sony eReader (.epub file).

I designed the cover and created the layout for the booklet version using InDesign.

Then using the InDesign file as a starting point, I created both the .mobi and .epub files, making numerous modifications to the code (similar to HTML)  throughout so that everything showed up correctly across as many platforms as I could test the files on (e.g., Kindle, iPad, Nook, NookColor, Sony eReader, Kindle and Nook mobile apps).
