  • software design

Monthly Flyer Creator Bot 3000 (Layout Engine) was an engine that would take a selected Flyer Page built with a user-friendly interface and build a press-ready document in Adobe InDesign.

The project enjoyed a tremendous success rate, causing an immediate overhaul of workflow and an average time savings of 80% by the editorial staff.

As described in the video, the MFCB3000 engine would use a highly-customized squarified treemap algorithm to create the layout that would be most optimal for the most variety of items.
