Here is the current format I’m working with during the transition to InDesign. This is the introduction spread for the skills section. The artwork is a placeholder to give a better idea of how I intend things to look in the end. The left bar shows a color coded chapter indicator that should bleed all the way to the edge of the page. The right bar shows the chapter title. I intend to keep most of the design relatively simple to maximize readability and to make the PDF version easier to compile and hopefully reflowable. This design is by no means final, so expect to see changes here and there as the project progresses.
