Photo Based Brochure Designing Guidelines

Brochures are prepared to advertise for something. Most of the people find brochures very boring and they don’t bother to see them again. The main reason of the failure of the brochure is the dull and boring design of the brochure. a brochure which contains a lot of text, will not be given any attention as audience of the brochure do not want to read the text given in the brochure. Brochure with pictures is very successful in seeking the attention of the audience as a picture can convey the message very easily and quickly to the target audience.

Photo based brochure solves the problem of the people and gives all the answers to the questions which a reader can have in his mind. For example, if a brochure is advertising for a school, then a person might want to see the internal picture of the school. If some snaps taken from the inside of the school are added in the brochure, then it will attract the people and they will respond to that brochure.

Always use the big pictures in the brochure. People in the pictures should be looking happy so that the reader can feel the positive effects of the product which has been advertised in the brochure. Do not use the sad pictures or the pictures of the people who are in pain. This will make a brochure very passive and there will be no attention of the audience.

It is not only the size of the picture which matters, but it is the quality of the picture. Try to use the pictures with high resolution on a paper of high quality. This will also enhance the readability of the brochure. The colour combination of the picture should also be chosen very wisely. If the background of the brochure is blue, the picture’s background should be taken in such a colour that can complement the blue colour of the background.

The pictures used in the brochure should be creative and original. Do not use any such picture, which has already been used many times by different products. An old picture will make your product look old and fake. The logo of the company must also be mentioned on the brochure. This will ensure that the brochure is real.

It is not necessary to use a square shaped photo in the brochure. the photo in any shape can be used in the brochure. The colours of the pictures also depend on the kind of brochure. For example, if you are preparing a brochure for a toy shop, then it requires being more colourful so that children can like it.

If your brochure is purely photo based, then you can hire a good designer for designing your brochure. The designer should also have high quality of knowledge and experience about designing the picture based brochure.

If you have set of pictures to be used on the brochure, then use a most attractive picture on the cover of the brochure so that it can compel the people to look inside the brochure.

Events Invitation Ideas

This is obvious that for arranging some event whether it is a birthday event or high scale wedding; there is need of creativity every time to arrange creative invitations as events are the best source of gatherings and invitations are always the best to the source of communicating one’s guests. To give the guests best mood of attending the event or the party you are throwing depends upon the invite sets. As we all know that this is a world of technology but invites in the hands received are much more interesting. An invite should be eye catching.

So, what the event is going to celebrate or what all about the party is, depends upon the invitation and best invitation based on some ideas and templates. Before the creation of invites, some points should be in mind that invite should be very obvious and clear so that it is legible. These points are;

Black and White Flyer Design Guidelines

Use of flyers has been in practice since advent of machine age. This was a far more accurate and effective mean of getting your message along to a larger audience. Back then flyers were being made by printing press, however in modern era digital printing and computer software packages have contributed extensively toward better flyers. The modern day flyer is anything but what its ancestors were. However, those black and white flyers still represent the rich tradition and are still being widely used. Even today some entities and individuals prefer back and white flyers due to their charm and adequacy in a number of circumstances. Services of professionals in this regard can prove to be very helpful as we have limited choice of colors. The aim is to get noticed, and no one said it could only be done with colors. Yes, you read me right, people usually do not regard black and white as a color when it comes to print and electronic media. Your flyer must be clear enough in its objective so as to let the intended user go in accordance with your planned course of action. In this case, use of top and bottom space is extremely important. At the same time large fonts and prime spaces on the flyers are to be used only for the information and ideas you want to highlight the most. As here in this case we do not have colors to support us in highlighting information.

Generally, your flyer must be very clear as to what it has got to offer to the audience. For example, it should be clear whether it will help them lose an extra pound or help in learning a foreign language. If you are offering discounts or special offers, you might want to highlight with large fonts or text boxes etc. Images may still be used to our aid. It’s always a good idea to add images to your flyers. However, these images must be such that the targeted audience can relate themselves to it. For example, if you’re offering chines cuisine, placing pictures of Chinese monument or designs will definitely help a lot. Yet all this information cannot be simply added to the flyers without arranging them into coherent order. Using attractive words that leave a mark on our mind and compel us to repeat them is always a good idea.

Although it is a generally held belief that colored flyers are better than black and white flyers, it is never easy to decide in favor of single one. As latter has proved its worth in a number of circumstances for example Nazi propaganda was effectively countered by Allied forces in Russia by use of black and white flyers. These colors, black and white, are symbolic in so many ways. Creating a theme and sticking to it throughout the flyer makes it more effective. The use of images should be in accord with the theme and object of the flyer. Distributing flyers is the second most important task once we are done with the design of the flyer. Usually there is a choice in the selection of colored paper but black and white flyers are more appropriate than the printing on the colored paper. Question arises as to the set of circumstances where black and white flyers are more effective and appropriate than the colored ones. We must say “it all depends”. As this choice largely depends on a variety of factors like a need for professional touch, need for symbolizing sophistication and tact. At the same time the most commonly known reason for the use of these flyers is to save costs. New businesses and entrepreneurs usually prefer these flyers along with the same set of choice for the product itself.
