Project 8: Brochure




Description: To create a dual sided, full bleed, brochure.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): To create this brochure I used three different programs which were indesign, illustrator, and photoshop.  A majority of my brochure was created in indesign.  That is were I created my 2 page, facing, 5 1/2 in x 16 1/2 in layout.  I labeled all of the different sections and I began placing colored rectangles to fill the background.  I used illustrator to create my logo and to use the pathfinder tool to layer and create different shapes.  I designed my front cover in illustrator and used the clipping mask to cut it in half.  I also used the clipping mask to create my photos into different shapes.  In photoshop, I used the magic wand to select the giraffe head.  I then added text wrap element to it in indesign.  For all of my text I used paragraph styling to organize the headers and paragraph fonts.

Message: To professional give information out about a zip line adventure park where you get to zip over animals.

Audience: This is directed towards anyone who wants to participate in outdoor adventure, find family fun, or cross zip lining off their bucket list.

Top Thing Learned: I learned how to creatively make my own brochure fold and use indesign to lay it out.  I got a lot of practice with layering and links.  The top thing that I learned was paragraph styling.

  1. Hey Amberlie! I love the creativity of your brochure! Kudos for thinking ‘outside the box’ and coming up with a unique design. The way you placed your photos in the triangles is really fun and visually interesting, I love the use of the zip line to create flow and keep your audience moving through the brochure. Your choice to put the logo inside of the ‘O’ on another zip line creates great visual interest! Again, great job…I just love your design!!

    Here is my brochure:


  2. Great Job Amberlie with the updates that you made! The color of the other two sides really help with the information. I just had another thought about how to help with communicating the message. On the triangle picture on the youth side to have a photo of a child doing the zipline. Great job with the layout! I am super impressed with the growth you have made through the semester.
