brochures

We’ve all thumbed through thousands of brochures in our lives and I’m sure the vast majority of them have been very similar- rectangular, book-like, wordy and, overall, pretty dull. This article aims to show that brochure design doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, it can be striking, stylish and extremely stimulating.

Don’t forget, your brochure will act as a first impression of your company for many. You need to make sure that it’s giving off the right message and reflecting the positive, forward-thinking brand image that you wish to promote and secondly, you need high-quality brochure printing services. Feast your eyes on the superbly designed and printed brochures below. They’ll act as a source of inspiration for all your future printing endeavours.

Brochures don’t have to be boring and square. This one is triangular to begin with, but by the time you’ve finished reading it, it’s taken on the shape of the company logo.

4. Forum Properties

Who says black and white is boring? A monotone colour scheme works extremely well here. This brochure even has space for a CD to be stored inside its back cover.

6. Craig Horsof

When unfolded and viewed from one side, this brochure appears to be rather plain and uninteresting. Viewed from the other, however, or read like a book, it’s colourful and wonderfully engaging. Very clever.

7. Rebrand

Colour and white space are perfectly balanced in this design. The brochure’s cover becomes a folder so that extra company literature can be stored inside.

10. Ministry of Culture

This is perhaps my favourite brochure of all in this list. I just love the way the thread from the complimentary bookmark hangs out the front. Presented with a brochure that looks this good, you can’t stop yourself from finding out what lies within.

Another brochure designed to look like something it’s not; this one closely resembles a restaurant menu thanks to its size, fonts, layout and pull-out paper sheets inside.

Thick, textured paper; a wrap; and printing onto the side of the brochure itself, all show potential customers that no expense has been spared in producing this material.

17. Centrocar

designsitesup.com

Grey and bright-orange combine with fold-out front and back pages to create a brochure that’s highly original. Cutting the company logo out of the front cover works nicely.
