Layout – Brochure

Last of the weekly activities for the layout topic is making a brochure for a fictitious travel agency. The goal is to learn more about typefaces, use of images and grid styles that make out a layout of a brochure. I chose the asymmetrical format as it gives me more room to experiment on my grid. At first, I wanted to make a minimalistic layout but I opted not since this is a learning activity and doing more means learning more at this stage. I am not yet done watching the tutorial videos on Lynda.com but I do visit it when problem arises. I encountered issues like the size of the image not fitting my grid or get in conflict with the text and the other way around and really tried hard to find solutions. Got page spread problem when I realized that my content page is actually two pages. Having images as background makes the design interesting but will challenge the placement of the text. I am liking the use of Indesign as it is very flexible.

Everything in this brochure came from scratch. I made the logo in illustrator. All pictures were my own and the titles but all the text content including telephone#s were copied and are fictitious.

  1. Veldig bra. Gjennomført komposisjon, og kult at du brukte egne bilder.
    Fikk asossiasjoner til adobe på det miniatyrbildet nede til venstre.

    Nice compo, very fresh and calm, I like it. Your typo needs some work to complete it.

      Thanks! I like simple types and been consistently using it 🙂 You think it’s not catchy or? BTW, I lost my Indd file of this and couldn’t review my grid. I only have the pdf…been looking for files the whole day!! Need a break!

        Not that its not catchy, your font size are inconsistent. It could be a slip up(oversight). These things happen. How did you loose your file? Try searching your computer or check recently opened in the file menu of the program.

    Oh! Where is the inconsistency? I did check them before converting to pdf. Now i can’t do that since there is no indd file.
    I did search too….anyway, I downloaded it again from moodle so everything’s fine. 🙂
