Description: A two sided folding brochure.
Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): I set up the brochure in Indesign using the grids and ruler so that everything would be in the right place when I began placing the text and photos onto the Indesign document.
I then placed the photos that I chose to use into the document. I also placed text inside the text boxes in the document. I used tracking, and kerning to make the text look cleaner throughout.
I used Illustrator to create my Logo. In Illustrator I found a font style that used the letter B the way I liked and then used the create outlines function to make it into a vector drawing. I then manipulated the B, using the pen tool so that it looks like a heart and added some circles to make the B look like a dog paw.
I then imported the picture of my daughter and her horse into Photoshop and used the quick selection tool to remove the background around them. I then used the refine edge tool to clean it up a bit. I used the smooth, feather, contrast, and shift edge so that the edge didn’t look so harsh. I then placed the image into the brochure and used the text wrap tool to wrap the text around the image.
Using the pencil tool in Indesign I created a shape that looks like mountains as the background of the brochure. I did this by drawing with the pencil tool and then connecting the end points and adding a fill color of blue. The deep blue color and gold color are seen throughout the brochure. They can be seen in the background of the brochure and in the pictures that I chose.
Message:The message of this brochure is that there is a fun family activity planned and everyone in the family should plan to attend and get excited.
