A duplex(single-fold) brochure showcasing a paranormal photo-scavenger hunt.
I first set up the document as a landscape document in Adobe In Design series CS6 with the size at 11 x 8.5. I then drew two black boxes using the shapes tool to make the entire brochure black. I then opened Adobe Illustrator series CS6 to create a whole new logo. I designed the logo by drawing various shapes using the shapes tool and then using the group selection and eye dropper tools I made a flashlight, a ghost and the ray of light coming off the flashlight. I then used the type tool and eyedropper tools to type out and color two separate boxes one to go above the image and the other to go underneath. I then saved the file in Illustrator and then re-opened it and place it on the far right side so that it would be on the front of the brochure. Afterwards I typed up my text to explain the purpose for it and the event happening. I then dew one huge text box on the left side of the second landscape document using the type tool. Afterwards I placed part of my text in there explaining the event. I then opened up a photo of myself looking for ghosts and following the tutorials provided by the instructor refined the picture using the feathering, selection, and refining tools in Photoshop series CS6. I then took that picture and placed it below the first text box where the majority of my text was. I then added a text wrap to the photo so that the text would go around my head and right shoulder. Afterwards I added various other pictures that I had gotten off of the internet and place two on the landscape that was the inside part, and then the other two on the first landscape document that would later be the back. I then went back and added corresponding text boxes using the text box tool with the text regarding each location for the scavenger/photo hunt. Afterwards using the paragraph styles tool I set up all of the text for the entire brochure to indent form remembering to not indent the first paragraph, and setting up a separate style box just for the first paragraphs in each box and changing the color of the text to a dark purple. To make sure that nothing would be ruined by the fold I set up a ruler guide in the middle at 5.5 inches on both landscape documents and using the move tool moved everything accordingly and aligning all the pictures with the correct text box.
