  • Brochure Book?

    Hello guys!!
    Thanks god I found a very nice design forum. Awesome!!!

    My problem:
    Im going to buy some books at amazon. And Im having problems to find a nice book of brochures. I looking for a inspiration book and not a "how to...book". Im looking for more "graphic solutions" inspirations than new creative papers,inks, "special emboss". I mean, a book that would help me when I get stuck, freezed, without ideas how solute a (layout) problem.

    I already found one book, but I really not sure if this is the best book around.

    The book that I told.
    The Best of Brochure Design 7 (the number 7 is cheaper than 8)
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/159...lance&n=283155

    Thanks for your attention!!

          @ distruktor: Very good hint! And the good news is 7 is cheaper . (ah! very nice site, waiting to see your portfolio).

          Guys,
          I work with low money clients, and I was thinking specially with design/graphic/layout solutions for small brochures (z-fold, gate-fold, tri-panel). Because they havent money to spend with special colors or papers. Mainly good solutions come from my creativity (graphic organization, layout...).
          Im writing this because I put my hands on "The best of Brochure Design 6" and I"ve found several good solutions for large brochures. One of them, for example: in the left page a picture and in the right, a blank page with a little box with text. But this kind of solution is almost impossible to me. I have a lot of information to put in a page, put photos, maps... So... that book is not too useful to me. Can you understand me? If I found a book that shows small brochures and folders, would be better. A better "shoot".

          In resume: a book with nice layout and graphic solutions when you have a lot of information (text and photos) to put in a small piece of paper.

          I hope you understand me.

          Thanks!!

                I dunno, I think it is worse when the dead headliners DO show up.

                I'm a creature of necessity. A lot of times the end client will want an actual signed release and a real photo credit, so you have to attempt to find the artist.

                All I can suggest is consult a tax expert in the UK. If your company doesn't mind you moonlighting like this, maybe they could suggest someone for you.

                I do business with people in the UK a lot. Because the gig they hire us for is going to be in the US, they time shift their design staff so they are available during US Eastern Time. It's the only way...
