I decided instead of not posting while I’m working, I would bring you into my workspace. Although I am not a graphic artist, I am designing covers for a new brochure for California Council for the Social Studies. So I’d like you to help me judge attractiveness. You should probably know what the organization is all about.
California Council for the Social Studies
- advocates for and promotes social studies education as an essential foundation in developing citizens for a democratic society in the 21st Century.
- provides professional development for social studies teachers through state and regional and local conferences.
- identifies and produces quality instructional resources and programs to improve classroom instruction of social studies
- assists in the development and implementation of state and local policies, legislation, framework, standards, testing and other instructional components.
So here are a few brochure covers I have played with. I won’t be at all insulted if you have some constructive feedback for me because these are ideas. Paula may redo them all, but I wanted to give her something to work with to start. One of these designs has an image that may be copyrighted that I have altered a bit, but if we use it I’ll get permission or purchase the image. Since we might not choose it, I’ll leave it for now.
So what advice do you have for me? Do any of these look like a possible brochure cover?
