Project. Eight-Page Brochure

Purpose. In this project you must carry a consistent design theme throughout the brochure, working with text type, display type, head, subheads, captions, folios, and a grid.

Assignment. First, select a topic that is of interest to you and one for which you have a plentiful supply of illustrations. This project requires a grid. For copy, either write your own or use dummy type. Regardless of your choice, you should write accurate heads, subheads, captions, and folios. Final designs should include all the typographic elements mentioned above. One of the five classic typefaces from Designing with Type is recommended for the text and captions, display type is optional.

Next, research and compile images and text for the design of your 8-page brochure. Sources can be varied: magazines, books, flyers, from the Internet, etc. The better your source materials are, the easier it will be to design your project.
