I like the contrast between the pink and the white in this brochure. I think for my own brochure I would like to use this sort of design, but with a light pink so to keep the consistency of my brand identity.
This brochure has spread a single photo over two pages, giving it a great look, especially in black and white. I would like to do this for my centrefold, with little or no text, maybe a simple quote.
Again, I like the contrast between the black and white. I think the birds make the page very interesting, but doesn’t take away from the text itself.
As our assignment is to create a brochure that promotes myself, I’ve researched and found a few that I like, and could take inspiration from:
I would like my brochure to look like this, or a similar design to this. I particularly like the photo taking up the whole page, with a short headline and subtitle underneath. I also like the copy on the top of the right page, leaving room for images underneath.
This is a particularly creative brochure I found. It definitely catches the eye and gets people’s attention. I’m not too fond of the colour as it wouldn’t reflect my personality and values, but still like the finished product.
I love how creative this one from Ikea is. It is essentially what they do, flat pack furniture, although this is on a much smaller scale. They didn’t need much text, as the brochure itself does all of the talking.
Here is a great example of formal typography. It is readable and legible, and still looks good. I would prefer a formal typography for my editorial document as it would suit my values and other work I have created.
I found this typography, which was created by Anne Lee. She collected different wild flowers and arranged and photographed themselves. I like how she didn’t need any computer to generate it, she made it simply by arranging flowers.
Although I wouldn’t use this type of font, I liked how it looked, and the different colours involved. It would be a nice thing to include in a editorial document, as it would include both photography and typography.
To start off our next assignment I’ve looked in to different typographic communication. Typographic communication is one of the three main considerations whilst developing an editorial document.
It can give an instant impression, what type you use can show your personality, or what your values are.
Here are some creative ones that I found interesting:
I like how the type in this image becomes part of the image, being the cord between the two phones. The image is almost a connotation of the word itself.
I think this one is really creative, writing the word on something other than paper. Writing on the stomach gives an indication to a type of indulging, through eating.
I love this one, both how the script font looks and how it is created in the first place. It must have took a while to make the wires the perfect shape in order for the shadows to be right, but the finished product looks great, even if you would only be able to see it from one angle.
For our first assignment in Semester 2 we have to ‘produce a brochure that promotes ‘you’. It needs to be eye catching and needs to show who you are and what you offer.
There are three main considerations when developing an editorial document:
- Typographic communications (formal and creative)
- Image (and graphic elements)
- Layout and composition (grid and compositional forces).
It needs to highlight who we are, what services we offer, our skill sets, our clients, our history and our values and philosophies.
We need to generate graphic elements, typographic elements, photography/ illustration and page layouts.
At the end of our assignment we need to produce an eight faced document, with print ready artwork and evidence of graphic/ typographic element design
This lesson we had a looking at sound recorders.
At first I found the lesson really interesting, and worked hard to figure out how they worked.
But then when I tried to use it I got confused, we kept getting such a loud high pitched noise when we tried to record sounds around college. Brian sorted it for us so we carried on recording, and got some good noises such as typing on a keyboard and doors closing.
After this we were shown how to transfer files over on to the computer.
