To support a presentation by the Kenosha Sculpture Walk project team, I was developed a handout for presentation attendees. I used Microsoft Publisher (part of the MS 2007 Office Suite) to develop this postcard- sized “mini-flyer”:
Why I Chose this Format
As the project only had a few facts to share with the public (for examples no sculptures had been chosen for the walk and no firm project timelines were set by the date of the presentation), a full brochure or even an 81/2″ by 11″ page flyer would been too empty. A smaller postcard format was used.
Why I Used Microsoft Publisher 2007
Ordinarally, I would have used Adobe InDesign or QuarkXpress to develop such a “mini-flyer”. However, it is my policy as writer to create materials that the client can change, adapt or update on systems they already have on their systems and are familiar with. I have found MS Publisher to a good page layout program.
Besides, MS Publisheer is a good program to use with Avery templates.
This poster presents the front and back of a brochure designed for the Foundation as a part of a joint development project.I created the poster from a brochure about the Foundation’s Charitable Gift Annuity program – a student at University of Wisconsin Parkside (Amanda McCann) designed the graphics in the brochure, while I wrote the text (which you can read if you zoom in close).
After six months, that included two design classes at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), feedback from local writers and graphic arts folk, hours of lynda.com training and just going back to the drawing board, I will refresh both my business set (biz card, stationary) and portfolio website (tstargos.com).
The new design will follow the follow a “personal brochure” that I first developed at MIAD and have further refined during at the computer labs at Gateway Technical College. See the attached graphics gallery below:
The new business cards should be ready soon. My plan is to change/redeploy the web site, after I develop a new wireframe/storyboard on Fireworks and construct/test the re-freshed site on Dreamweaver.
