The Time-line organizes both Portfolio Projects, Artwork and Custom Gear. The Program (collection of Projects) will be spread over six or so years. Each year is a project consisting of X number of items.
The Time-line Chart provides visual tracking and planning. The standardized chart links in data from other sources. It's published around the 1st of the month and a couple of times during the month when updates are significant.
The basic layout I've set up is below. Mouse over for notes.
The Event Boxes for Artwork are along the top.
The Event Boxes for AJL Custom Projects events are below the Artwork and above the Time-line Bar. The Artwork Items have a duration bar that covers the period of time the event occured.
The Title Block identitifes the Project and basic information on the Project.
Spare Boxes for items on the timeline.
The only difference between Art Items and Leather Items is the duration bar on the Art Items.
