Portfolio: Technical Writing & Editing

~ Single Sourcing ~

This project demonstrates how information can be reused and presented differently based on the audience and the document purpose.

Screwdriver Technical Specs
Technical Specification (pdf)
These are the technical specifications of a screwdriver I have at home, with additional content added regarding the materials it's made from. The point was to describe all the relevant materials and dimensions as thoroughly as possible.

Screwdriver Whitepaper
Whitepaper (pdf)
The purpose of this document is to present a qualitative analysis of the screwdriver to convince a potential buyer to select this screwdriver. It fleshes out the technical specifications indicating why they are important.
Webpage Wireframe (pdf)
Presenting the same information about the screwdriver on a web page requires conciseness but thoroughness. This sample page therefore condenses the whitepaper content and includes the technical specifications as well.
