    I'm a developer for a digital agency and can personally vouch for the benefit of mock-ups. How else can a developer code against a design if they don't exist? In terms of development/design time, desktop...

  • Adobe Indesign Document Setup for brochure !!!

    Hi Buddies...

    I've been working as a web-developer for few years. I've never designed yet for printing purpose. Now I've been assigned a work to design a trifolded brochure of a company. Here, all I need to know is about the document setup before starting the design. I'm thinking to use Adobe Indesign CS2 for this very purpose. Though I'm very new to Indesign, I've gathered some ideas from online resources which I think will be enough for completing the brochure design. However, I'm a bit confused regarding the document setup. Normally, as far I know, most of trifold brochures are designed in the Letter size paper. Hence, I also used the same size for my design. When I check the layout in Indesign workarea, I see the red rectangle boundry within the the black boundry. Black boundry reaches to 11 inches in width and 8 inches in height which is the exact size of letter size paper. Now the very thing confusing me is whether to design my entire work inside the red boundry or inside the black boundry. Please let me know about this thing and help me solve this problem. Any sort of suggestion would be highly praised. Thanx in advance.

    First, letter paper is 8.5" x 11"

    The red border you see is called a margin. You can re-set that in the Layout Menu. You can design all the way out to the black border. However...

    Are you doing a full bleed or will your brochure have white borders?

    If doing full bleed, check with your printer how much bleed off the 'paper' (outside the black border) you will need for trim.

    If you are leaving white edges or have a "paper" colored background, ask your printer what the safety is and hold your margins and design inside the black line by that amount. Safety is the allowance the printer needs to keep what's important on the paper.

    If you don't know the terms maybe Morea can come up with a printer glossary for you. Or you can Google for one.
