Most desktop publishing applications have a common design area with a toolbox that contains various tools like the shape, text, animation tools among others (Adobe Creative Team 2010; Cohen 2010). These tools are used together with texture and colour palettes to develop and colour publications. The designer can also choose from a set of themes that have consistent colour mixtures and patterns and accompanying font types, sizes and colours.
The Socialite club logo picture
The Socialite club logo picture is shown below. Each element was created individually using the text, colour, and shaping tools from the Indesign palette. The text was aligned to curves and fitted into the circular shapes. After assembling the text and shapes into the desired logo design shown below the elements are then grouped together.
The Socialite Club brochure was created using a c-fold type (Hadock et al. 2011).
The screens shots below show the front and reverse sides of the brochure. The brochure paper size is A4 with a landscape orientation.
