Project 8: Brochure








  1. Description:  Two sided trifold brochure
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):  I used illustrator to recreate a logo.  I opened an indesign document and made grid  lines for the spacing of my brochure.  I imported my logo and I spaced out the lining of my text.  I used text wrap to wrap around the picture I used in the middle and I used the indentation paragraph style.  I used Word to type my text and the later I placed the text into my indesign document.  I made sure the text and spacing were aligned and then I printed a few times to get the margins right.
  3. Message:  Kay’s Candies are delicious and natural.  Come with an appetite and eat candy.
  4. Audience:  Anyone who enjoys fudge and baked goods.
  5. Top Thing Learned:  I’ve never made a brochure before.  It was very difficult getting the margins correct.  I learned a lot about paragraph styling.  Those are things I never knew before, but I do now.

I had fun taking these pictures.  I hiked up ‘R’ mountain and took a nice shot of the scenery below me.  I made sure to focus on the sky.  I then took a picture of my roommate at the top.  The lighting was nice and the sky was so blue that day.  I had a great time figuring out PhotoShop as well.  All of the different settings were interesting and fun to learn.

I took a picture of the tulips outside of the Heart building.  I thought they were so beautiful.  I especially loved the color.  It was cloudy that day so the lighting wasn’t that great.

It was a struggle trying to take a picture of the indoor lighting.  I couldn’t find the right placement and the lighting was terrible.  Being inside a closed off apartment isn’t the best source of light, but I tried my best with what I had.

Overall I enjoyed taking these pictures and I think this assignment will definitely help me improve in figuring out good composition.
