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.
