After the critique session on my first design, I adjusted the following:Decrease in point size of text Change my arts and health full panel photo to just the logo and text itself Change the background colour on the inside page of the brochure Rearrange and add more elements to fill in some empty spaces and to ‘frame’ the text and photos
After looking at my reference brochure, I decided to try out a few folds. The first fold was the strike through effect.

I chose my mock up 3 and modified the brochure design.
I arranged the elephant on one side. When viewers open it, they can see an elephant. I did a die cut to see the hot air balloon which is located at the inside of the brochure.
