How to Create a Multipurpose Brochure in Apple Pages
You can either go to websites such as GraphicRiver or Pinterest to learn how to make DIY brochures, or you can refer to the instructions provided below. Here, we'll teach you and also give you ideas on how you can make stunning and effective multipurpose brochures in Apple Pages.
1. Decide on a type of brochure
Speaking of multipurpose, brochures come in multiple types and you should start the process by deciding which one to create. A bi-fold brochure is a basic type that's great for narrative purposes and simple product presentations. Tri-fold brochures, on the other hand, are perfect for general product presentations and are capable of preventing the panels from getting cluttered. Aside from these two, there are still a lot more brochure types available.
2. Gather details and images or photos
After deciding on a brochure type, you can start gathering information for the written content. Besides that, you should also start gathering photos or images that are relevant to your brochure and will add to the delivery of the content. However, when gathering details and elements, make sure that they correspond to the type and purpose of your brochure.
3. Make an outline of all details
Once you've gathered all the details you need, you can start putting them together by initially making an outline. Doing this will ensure that all relevant details are included and are conveyed appropriately. Alternatively, you can choose to simply focus on relevant keywords and write them down in a list or in bullet form. Whichever method works best for you, just make sure that it'll help you in constructing quality content for your advertising brochure.
4. Write an introductory statement
Regardless of the type of brochure, there will always be a panel dedicated entirely to introducing readers to the business or organization. This introduction serves to narrate a brief background of the organization while also mentioning some people who have contributed to its upbringing. As an optional addition to the introductory statement, you can also discuss briefly what the organization's mission and vision are.
5. Create your multipurpose brochures
With the use of Apple Pages, you can create simple yet informative DIY brochures for whatever purpose you can think of. You can start by launching Pages, creating a new document, selecting a template (optional), and then setting up the layout. Afterward, you can start putting together all the elements that you've gathered in the previous steps to come up with your brochure's layout and content.
6. Design a cover page
A brochure's cover page should never be taken for granted regardless of what the brochure is for and what type of brochure you're creating. Since modern brochures are folded up, there will always be a panel that serves as the front cover and will help create the reader's expectations of the brochure's content. Because of this, it is important that you create an impressive and compelling cover page.
7. Evaluate and print your brochures
To make sure that your printable brochures are indeed unparalleled or at par with those that are created by professionals, set aside a few minutes to evaluate both the design and the content. Afterward, you can proceed to print your brochures. When printing copies of your brochure, make sure to use high-quality materials and to set your printer at the best possible setting to bring out the best in your brochure's design.
