Layout Design Bootcamp – Episode 7 – Trifold Brochure

Welcome to episode 7 of Layout Design Bootcamp where my goal is to take you through entire design layouts to show you the exact process of how it’s done. In this seventh episode, I continued to implement the brand of “Galaxy Gym” that I developed in Logo Design Bootcamp Episode number 7. I decided to design a brochure that would advertise the company. This brochure is targeted at any individual looking to become healthier and save money from the the expensive gym chains like they are used to. This tutorial will teach you so many things including:

    Hello Stephen!!

    I really enjoyed your tutorial for this topic and thanks for sharing it to us. But as much as I wanted to download the accompanying file for this tutorial, it won’t work.

    Hence, can you please send me the accompanying file directly to my email address?

    Please? Please? It would be a great help for a newbie like me.

    Thanks and hoping for your immediate consideration.

    hi Stephen, first of all i thank you for sharing your creative work with us your lessons are clear, easy to understand and of course owe some. i do some graphic designing for some of my friends as a hobby though i am not much experienced designer.

    My curiosity is, How to make big banners and how to incorporate images. I found some stuffs on Google that says i should work in half size or 1/4 etc size. Here what leaves me blind is, in that case how do i calculate my images to appear fine in final size??? is it ok to use transparency?? can i use spot color for that??

    I strongly believe you definitely have the experience of this kind of stuff, would you please share with me and help me out of this blindness
    Thanks in Advance
    Kind Regards

    • Arjun thank you for commenting. Try looking at Episode 17 of Layout Design Bootcamp – Billboard Design. You can definitely work at a fraction of the size, but make sure your Images are large enough so when it is scaled up you still have a high resolution.
