    Default A 3-FOLD 8 1/2 X 11 BROCHURE CREATION FOR ANOTHER CLIENT

    Another XARA creation dump on the forum...

    This is a 3-fold Brochure with bleed (not shown) I did for a gal starting a business. (names numbers websites changed for the post).

    I love doing stuff like this in XARA... Hope the screenshots do it justice...

    So this gets exported as a 300 dpi CMYK PDF and sent to the printer... I never cease to be confused about matching the colors and different PDF formats, but it seem to work out in the end...
    Some printers want TIFF files - and I could never figure out why. So each page would have to exported (at the bleed size) to TIFF. Just don't know why they wouldn't use PDF these days...
    ...maybe something to do with color? Who knows? I just do what they ask. LOL They don't have to know that I know diddly about this stuff. LOL

    I just walk in and play is cool, acting like the graphics professional I'm not... (FUN!) "Sure, no problem... TIFF? PDF? JPG? PNG? 1/4" bleed 1/8" bleed?... no prob. whatever you need" LOL
    When I turn it in... if they say "good", I turn, roll my eyes up and say... "whew! get me outta here."

    There are some real printing pros here on the forum... that's where I got a lot of info from that helped me begin to do this kind of stuff... but it's coming together slowly...

    Being part of your fan club, I feel I have to be honest and say I find this one too 'templatey'. It's missing the Cliff factor.

    Don't get me wrong, it's very effective and does it's job perfectly but I daren't zoom in for fear of finding the Shutterstock logo That's actually quite a compliment. Companies throw tons of time and money at templates!

    Chris... you broke my heart bro. But I agree... It's definitely 'templatey'... but definitely not template based. Two things here...

    1) Believe it or not, the ONLY thing/idea I borrowed from another brochure was the curved thingy at the bottom... the rest is all me. LOL
    The only logo I used was her company logo supplied by her... and all the other pics... Public Domain CC stuff.

    2) She showed me a half dozen brochures that she liked and they all were very similar to what I created...
    "I want it to look like these if you can" I took pieces/ideas from about 3 of them and put it all together...

    This one was strictly business. No fun... No creativity... No playin' around with stuff... Just a business brochure..

    Thanks as always

    Cliff

    Got a call tonight from a friend of a friend who has a Venetian Blind business and wants a flyer.... That'll be a whopping 20 bucks I'll be depositing this week... (Whoo-Hoo!!! Let the good times roll!)

    Looks more like one of those Ninja throw weapons than a badge.

    Went for a Ninja mask, but ended up with whatever this is...
