I am a consultant, I manage projects for clients on a 'white label' basis; I'd like you to design me a MS Word reporting template that: i) will allow me over time to build a subtle brand (without actually branding the document) i.e. Over time, the reader will know that the report they have received has come from the same writer (due to the fact that every report is laid out in exactly the same way, in exactly the same font etc.
The layout template should: i) not look like the standard templates available online and ii) retain as much of the full area typically available for writing a MS Word document and iii) should have the capability to always insert a picture or two (with our report readers, 'pictures speak a thousand words'). Signature colors I have typically used to date would be light blue & light grey (and occasionally light orange). We do occasionally also use .xls and .ppt.
