How to Make a Cool Brochure


Brochures are used for a variety of reasons. They spread information, advertise and target a specific market with the purpose of educating an audience. According to All Graphic Design, people can decide in "just a few seconds" if they like what they are reading and if it's captured their attention enough to continue reading. That's why it's so important to create a brochure that catches the readers attention immediately.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Word
  • Photoshop
  • Open Microsoft Word or Photoshop or any other program with which you can manipulate text and images. In Word, you can select "File" --> "New" --> "Brochure" and you can select the brochure that you like the most. After that you can manipulate text and images to your liking. In Photoshop, choose "New" and in the size option, fill in 9 x 12 (the average printer sheet size). Put ppi at 300 and click "Okay." The blank sheet in front of you is ready to be filled in.

  • Select a title for your brochure that catches the reader's attention. Directly under the title, add a subtitle that gives the reader more information in less than a sentence.

  • Add images to your brochure that display your content in a visual manner. Do not make the images overpowering; use them sparingly.

  • Create bullet points in your brochure that can summarize what your subject content is. Try to keep them simple so as not to overpower your reader. Aim for less than five words a bullet.

  • Add contact information on the brochure. Include company name, email address, phone number and address if it is for a company. If it is not for a company, include what you feel is the easiest way for someone to reach you for more information.
