Analysis of a Desktop Publishing Package

I could use a Desktop Publishing package, Microsoft Publisher, because

this would enable me to use various different templates, be able to

use clip-art, and other features which make it easier to produce good

designs that would all add up to a professional outcome.

I could also use Microsoft Word, but I feel that this software is

mainly used for letters and documents that contain some images and

text, because of the special features it has to offer. Microsoft Word

does not allow you to get your desired results as quickly and as

easily as in a Desktop Publishing package. Yes, Word’s performance is

great as a word processor, but there is no point spending hours trying

to do things in Word that can be done in minutes with Publisher.

I feel that the best software to use is Microsoft Publisher. Not only

does is it quick and easy to use but it gives you professional results

every time.

To ensure that my work is how it should be, I could collect data in

two ways.

Firstly, I would take my designs to my end user, Alexander Loo, and

see what he thought of them. If he has any suggestions or comments of

his own then I would simply edit my designs to fit his requirements.

Secondly, I could design a questionnaire to see what others thought of

my designs. If necessary I could add other features to my design at a

later stage.
