A memo, short for “memorandum,” is a document dispersed within a group or organization for internal communications. Think of it as a written announcement that is shared with anywhere from several people to an entire team or department. A typical memo format is short, concise, and informal in the sense that it’s straight to the point, rather than elaborate and detailed. For these reasons, memos are best used for general announcements rather than confidential detailing, and can be used to introduce bigger ideas or topics that will be covered in a meeting, email, or announcement down the road. Memos have always been a written document, but Adobe Spark Page gives you the capabilities to build your memo in a traditional format with the added “spark” of photos, videos, and themes, all available online to easily share with as many of your peers as you need.

All memos start with the same key details – to, from, the date, and a subject. Generally, memos are flushed left to the page, but with Adobe Spark Page you can arrange your information however fits your style best. Beyond that, add in a paragraph or two that begins with your important announcement and follows with any additional details.

With Adobe Spark Page, you can customize your memo to fit the mood of the message. Explore different themes to find the perfect fit, and adjust font styles and placement to optimize readability. For business memos, serif fonts feel professional and appropriate. If your brand has a specific style of branding, chances are the premade themes have a typestyle to match the mood.
Adobe Spark Pages began with a header photo. You can either upload your own, including branded artwork or relevant images, or you can explore both free stock and Adobe Stock photos. Photos are usually not necessary for a memo, but if they help support the message of the memo, you can add them in and lay them out in various options to suit your needs!
