I am acting for a UK independent school on a major fundraising appeal. We need a professionally-designed brochure, initially for use in one-to-one meetings with potential donors, and then a few months down the line for a bigger print run.
I am no designer, but have created a draft version of the brochure in InDesign. I would like the chosen designer to broadly follow the shape of this, but to take it to the next level. I am looking for something that is more contemporary and more eye-catching.
Essentials: A4 landscape, 16 pages. End result to be provided as an InDesign file.
I am not keen on white text on coloured backgrounds. I think pull quotes are important.
I will create a shared Dropbox folder with all the copy, photos and graphics. I would like to receive the completed brochure as an InDesign file so that I can make alterations going forward.
For the purposes of choosing the designer for this job, I would like to see an example double page spread created as an alternative to pps 8 – 9 of my ploddy design, below. I have attached a selection of photos and graphics below, as well as the necessary copy. I suggest you visit the school's website to get a feel for the place and how it expresses itself - www.sherborne.com But don't be slavish in following this look - the school realises it's not great and they are actually working on a new site at the moment.
To give you some idea of the type of professional polish I am looking for, check out the King's School document - here http://issuu.com/underhillassociates/docs/king_s_review_medium_resolution_fin/1 . OK, it's a review, not a fundraising brochure, but it's got the crispness I need.
