Creating a Dark and Sleek Brochure Design in Photoshop
While the white trifold brochure is the staple for many kinds of businesses, in today’s world one has to be a bit bolder and flashier. Here in this tutorial, we will teach you how to create something slightly opposite to the standard (and boring) types of brochures.
Here, we are going to go through the step by step process of creating a dark and sleek type brochure design using Adobe Photoshop. This can be an invaluable design style, especially if your own brochures are just the typical cut and paste white style brochure print. So carefully read on and learn.
To start creating a brochure design in Adobe Photoshop, we will first start of course with creating a new document. To make things easier, we will use a letter-sized dimension in landscape orientation. This will allow you to print the design event at the office or at home. So we create a new document with these specifications.
a. Width: 11 Inches
b. Height: 8.5 Inches
c. Resolution: 300ppi
Now, before we start with the design, we will have to setup the margins first. Bring up the rulers by pressing CTRL+R. From there you can click and hold the left mouse button and drag guidlnes into your document canvass. Position 4 guidelines at 0.25 (1/4) inches away from the edges of the document.
