A two sided (offset) folding brochure.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):

After an hour or so of making sketches of a logo, I brought the design to Illustrator and used the pen tool and ellipse tool to make the shapes.  I sketched a few designs on paper for the layout and finally settled on one that I knew would be frustrating to me, but I was interested in trying to make it work. After making the layout in Adobe InDesign, I added in the actual content.

I used a few custom shapes in InDesign with the pen tool for the inside. The images I used were intended to display the products and services available.

For the guitar and drum set, I used Adobe Photoshop’s ‘quick selection tool’ to edit out the backgrounds and masking tool and paint brush to select a better edge.

Add yours

  1. I really liked the design of your brochure, I thought that it was really cool how you cut out the middle of the record to display your logo. I really like how you made the front look like a record player, I thought that was really creative. It was a little hard to read the yellow text, but I’m sure its easier on paper and not on the screen. Great job on your project!
