All the ideas above are inspirational in layout but also in its unfolding, which is very important in understanding and designing what is revealed and presented at each step. These ideas are ones I am looking to carry into my design for the Habitat for Hope brochure and booklets.
1 -3} A standard brochure size can be taken one more fold further to create a stand-out custom size. / Commune Inc.
4-5} Visually the standard brochure size is broken down with the use and placement of white space. / Commune Inc.
6} Similar to 1-3 with one cut involved. / Darren Firth.
7-9} The dark block to emphasize the title text works well. There is one option shown where the final unfolded mailer is vertical rather than the typical horizontal. / Mocatishu
Each example below has a bold and clean layout. The key to visual impact is the strength of the photography and the illustration. Use of color is either non-present or kept to at least 2 tones. /Designers respectively 1} MartinoJanaDesign / 2-3} Roman Krikheli / 4} eighthourday / 5-6} Eug3nio Ortega / 7} Hofstede Design / 8} Michael Freimuth
