I have been looking over some very interesting brochure designs on Pintrest lately…! I swear it’s not just a procrastination technique, they actually hold some incredibly good designs.
Here are a few examples of ones I liked;

In this one above, I like the use of colour, just enough to add some pop to each page, while keeping everything else quite minimal, just using black and white – even in the pictures. The layout is quite consistent as well, gives it a framed look.

With this one, I like how again it’s framed, the text has either an outline (like the right page) or has a coloured background for the table of contents, both sets it out rather well.
I have also chosen a few fonts I would like to use throughout my brochure. I like to have clean lines, and as such have chosen to use as my body font:
And as for my heading font, either, the trusted old faithful, Helvetica OR one I found called Essence Sans.
Also, in terms of a layout, I am going to go with an A5 booklet (max 10 pages) in landscape orientation, and am hoping to set it out like one of the examples displayed above.
I have almost half of my content prepared, and am working on the other half across the next few weeks!
I have an image I am playing with, and would love some feedback on, for the front page….! I am thinking of taking the grey background away and just having the circles etc. may make it a bit neater!!
