Intran was a Minnesota company where Debbie worked upon graduation from Macalester College. It's long gone now, but here are some memories to share.

Intran Promotional Video (1984) - Bringing Information to Life

Around the time that Debbie arrived at Intran, this video was created that shows the Metaform system. The video was posted by Digibarn using a file provided by Debbie.

Intran Gourmeta Cookbooks

In 1986, the popularity of the Intran Product Integration Group's renowned Goodie Chair led to the publication of the Intran Gourmeta cookbook, featuring recipes from some of the treats that appeared on the Goodie Chair over the years. It was created using MetaForm's FormBuilder and GraphicsBuilder, and printed using the newly-developed PostScript driver in MetaForm. The FormBuilder user interface was modified to create the cookbook section dividers, and the Gourmeta icon was based on the four product icons in the MetaForm line. The four buttons at the bottom (representing help, undo, etc., in MetaForm) were modified to represent the four food groups.

The first Gourmeta cookbook was such a hit with Intran employees that the Marketing department decided to create a holiday version to send to customers in December 1986. This version was a half-size booklet, with red cardstock cover. The pages were developed in FormBuilder again, but the cookbooks were printed in bulk by a printing company.
