Gatefold Project For High School Students (Adobe InDesign)

Many different types of brochures can be used to build an image for your company, promote a specific event such as a party, update a specific products info, or for many other things.

This project requires students to think about a product or service that they might want to advertise for themselves, or for another company.   Students will be required to create a brochure that has two folding flaps in front of the primary page.

Additional Info: To lay out a gate fold piece in your design or layout program, use one page for the front and one page for the back, and measure out where the folds will be with guides (see right figure). Also, bleeds should only be set on the outside edges of the piece and must be .125” (1/8”) in size, but the page size should be defined as the final trim size.
