Project 8: Brochure
Video of Printed Brochure:
A project to create a brochure for a company of our choosing, with another original logo created by me.
Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):
I used Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign while creating this project. I started by planning out my new logo, and creating it in Illustrator. After I had the logo designed I made some general layout sketches for my brochure and worked on creating the body copy for the brochure. I took my sketches and recreated them using InDesign on the computer. I used filler text to help me plan the alignment and spacing throughout the brochure. After the text and main layout was completed, I found the pictures that I wanted to use and started editing them in Photoshop. I used the selection tool to create an image that I could wrap my text around, and I made some color changes to some of the other photos. I even found a way to include some of my other work to display on the screens of the electronics photo. When I was finished with all of the editing, I placed the pictures in the InDesign document and arranged them on the pages. I then got feedback from a few people about how to improve my design. After receiving the feedback I made more changes to help add interest and align the items properly. I then printed off the brochure (a few times) and finally came out with my completed project.

Top Thing Learned:
That the Adobe software is made to work together and makes creating things like this enjoyable and exciting. I also learned how to combine all the elements (images, text, shape, etc.) in a way that is visually appealing and easy to read and understand.
