Brochures are one of the most powerful marketing tool for companies and organizations. Through brochures companies are able to tell people about their products or services as well as their mission/vision as a company or organization. In creating a brochure, design is a major factor such as the choice of color scheme, the size of the brochure, the printing process to be used or applied as well as the type of paper. These are just some of the major considerations when conceptualizing a brochure design.
When designing a brochure we always look up first for inspiration and the best place to search for inspiring designs is the Web. Like in web design, creating a layout for print is also influenced by certain trends. As a starting point for you, we compiled in this post the 30 best brochure design samples that we found from all over the Internet.
