You have been delegated the task of creating a new trifold brochure promoting the Project HOPE program. The brochure will be two documents with each document being 8.5″ x 11″ then printed on front and back and folded in thirds. You will need to use Adobe InDesign or Adobe Photoshop to create the brochure.
Things to consider before starting the design of the trifold brochure:
- What is your main message and purpose of the brochure?
- Who is your target audience of the brochure?
The following are examples of trifold brochure layouts.
Before creating the logo, you need to determine the color scheme and main typography (fonts) you will be using in this project. You will be using the logos for Northwest Tech and High Plains Technology Center within the brochure. Please take those color schemes into consideration when developing the color scheme and logo.
Be sure to create a post or post to a new page the color scheme and typography you will be using and explain why you choose those. You refer to the Color Resources Board and the Typography Board of the Digital Design Pinterest account for resources and inspiration.
After deciding on the typography and color scheme, create a document like the following (to be included on your Project HOPE page) which displays examples and then go a step further and actually include the names of the fonts, links to the website where the fonts are available for download, and the color codes for the colors chosen.
You will need to create a new logo to be used on the Project HOPE materials and publications. The acronym HOPE stands for Helping Others Pursue Employment. The logo needs to be sized so it can be easily read when inserted into the trifold brochure. You may refer to the Logo Design Board of the Digital Design Pinterest account for tips, tricks, and inspiration in designing logos.
After you have determined the color scheme, typography, and created the logo, it is time to determine the layout of your brochure… front and back sides of the trifold brochure (six sections basically). You can refer to the Brochure Designs Board of the Digital Design Class Pinterest account.
You may search for free stock photos or check out the Digital Design Pinterest Stock Photography Board for ideas for images to be used within your brochure. If I need to purchase professional images to be used, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
The following information should be attractively included somewhere in your final brochure design. Remember you do not have to include full sentences in all aspects of your trifold brochure but the objective is to convey accurate information in as concise format as possible for the reader.
