Are you looking for Elite Brochure Design Services in Toronto? Look no further. We got you covered at Little Dragon Media.

Brochures act as traditional versions of modern day websites. They should instantly captivate and motivate your target audience on print; putting your best foot forward.

A well-designed and accurately distributed brochure can help to greatly expand your company's overall visibility in the marketplace and let your message be seen and heard. Brochures when used as part of a focused marketing strategy will help you reach out and engage with new customers, sparking brand awareness and growth.

Furthermore, an attractive brochure design can provide positive press about your company, the products and/or services you offer, and your company's vision. On the flipside, a poorly-designed brochure can have a very negative effect on how potential customers view your business and the quality of your products and/or services.

Ensuring that you have the very best design team tackling your brochure design project, that is aware of this and has the experience necessary to not only produce an attractive brochure, but to produce an effective brochure that helps you get your message out there and grabs people's attention is of paramount importance!

Don't trust just any company with your business, take your brochure design to the next level here at Little Dragon Media.

4 STEPS TO AN EFFECTIVE BROCHURE DESIGN

In creating a well-designed brochure design that is effective in capturing your audience's attention and properly conveys your message, 4 important areas need to be taken into account to ensure the best chance of success. Listed below are the 4 steps to an effective brochure design:

Command
Attention

Command the attention of your target audience by engaging them with compelling copy, quality imagery and a striking cover design. People are passed leaflets, brochures, flyers, business cards and other marketing material all the time while walking down their street or riffling through their mailbox. Your brochure needs to stand out and grab their attention so you do not get lost in the shuffle.

Set the
Right Tone

Conveying your message is not just dependent on images and text, setting the tone of your message with the right choices of colour and style is a great way to set the mood of your brochure design and your intended message. Also, setting the right tone that properly fits your business will go a long way in conveying information about your company before your audience even starts to read the first line of copy.

Create a
Proper Balance

Content is king, and balance is queen! You may want to squeeze in as much content as possible and fill your brochure panels margin-to-margin, however, finding a proper balance of content and negative spacing is as important as the content itself! A busy design that's difficult to digest is almost guaranteed to fail. Your brochure must be clear, concise and balanced visually so it can breathe and your message can speak loudly.

Choose the
Right Style

You may have a great message, but how you present it on the page helps your message sing at high volume! Choosing an appropriate style of brochure that best displays your information and creates an ideal presentation to convey your message is an extremely important aspect to consider. Half-fold, Tri-Fold, Z-Fold, etc... packaging your message appropriately within the ideal brochure fold design is very important.

BROCHURE DESIGN FAQ

What will the brochure design process be like?

We make the brochure design process as simple and stress-free as possible for you. Our design team will help guide you through every step of the brochure design process along the way to cover all the bases, and to make certain that you are fully comfortable and informed throughout the design process. Our brochure design professionals are committed to ensuring they capture your vision completely, bringing your message to life, and creating a kickass brochure that you will be proud of and that effectively conveys your message to the world.

 

The creative process of designing your brochure works like this:

 

1. First, we will set you up with our senior brochure designer who will discuss every aspect of the project in-depth with you so we can best understand you, your company, and the message you would like to convey within your brochure. This first step gives us the initial framework for your brochure design so that we can best bring your vision and message to life through the rest of the creative process.

2. We will then start putting together a design plan for your brochure, covering everything from copy, tone, style, message, imagery, colours, desired look and feel, etc. We make sure to cover all of the bases in assembling a comprehensive design plan with you for your brochure creation to ensure our design team has everything they need and understands your vision acutely, so we can create the very best brochure designs for you that capture exactly what you are looking for.

3. Next, our brochure design team gets to work on creating your brochure design comps (initial design concepts) for you to review. These design comps will be delivered to you online through our 'TeamWork' platform in PDF format and will include a minimum of 3 unique brochure designs for you and your team to review.

4. Once you have taken your time to review the brochure design comps, our lead designer will sit down with you via phone and/or email to discuss which comp(s) you like and work with you on the next step in the process. If we hit it out of the park on the first set of comps and you would like to finalize a selection as is, that is fantastic! If so, we will next work on finalizing your selection with you.

5. If you would like any revisions to tweak or change the design, layout, any copy or whatever you wish, that is totally fine also of course! Rome wasn't built in a day and we understand that... Little Dragon Media is committed to ensuring we get your design just right! This is proven by our company policy of offering up to 3 rounds of revisions to ensure we get the design dialed in perfectly and deliver to you a perfect brochure design that fits your company and your message.

 

6. Once we refine your selected brochure design and get everything perfect, we will submit the design to you for final approval. Once approved, we will finalize the design and deliver your new kickass brochure to you in a variety of formats for both web and print, so you can start circulating your new brochure online and print your new brochure for the world to see!

What style of brochure should I choose?

Choosing a style (fold-styling) for your brochure is a key decision to make at the start of the brochure creation process. We will help you make the best decision possible so you can select the most ideal style for your design that positively impacts your brochures look and its overall effectiveness. We will sit down with you during the initial design process and present you with all of your options to choose from and explain the differences and the benefits of each style of brochure. Whether it be Tri-Fold, Z-Fold, Half-Fold, Cross-Fold, Gate-Fold, etc... we will make sure you know all of the possible choices available to you and help you find the very best style to ensure your brochure is professional, stylish, fits your business, and is as effective as can be!

What does a brochure design revision entail?

Once you select a design comp (initial design concept) that fits your vision and the direction you would like to take your brochure, our design team will work with you on fine-tuning your brochure design through a revision(s). During this revision stage, our design team refine and tweak the design, copy and layout of your brochure so that it is molded to be exactly what you are envisioning.

 

Most commonly in the revision process, our designers work on tweaking minor areas of your brochure design like colour, copy changes and/or minor edits to the layout of your brochure. However, sometimes depending on the project, a more extensive revision is required. You are provided up to 3 rounds of revisions with your design project, free of charge, as we are 100% committed to providing you with the very best service possible to ensure you love your new brochure and it is absolutely perfect!

Can I incorporate my own ideas into the design?

Absolutely! Your ideas, suggestions and input are vital to the process as we are designing this brochure together throughout the creative process. This is your brochure, not ours and we totally understand that and encourage you to participate in the creative process with us so we can create the best brochure design imaginable for your business.

 

We encourage you to add as much input during the design process as you would like... whether you have seen designs you like and would like to submit as references, have rough drawings of ideas you have, ideas you would like to discuss, have specific taglines, colour swatches you would like to incorporate, competitor brochure examples, etc. Anything and everything you would like to include during this process is welcomed, as it will all go a long way to ensure your brochure design is pin-point perfect and captures everything you are looking for.

Can you redesign my existing brochure?

Definitely! We can work with any existing design you have, whether it is a finished piece or a partial brochure design/layout. Our design team will sit down with you and discuss with you exactly what you would like to redesign and construct a comprehensive design plan with you, so we can transform your old brochure design into something that is new, modern, professional and truly effective!

What happens once my brochure design is complete?

Once you have approved your final brochure design, our design team will output your final brochure files and send them over to you via email, our 'TeamWork' platform, or via DropBox. *note* we can arrange the files to be delivered via a wide range of means digitally that best fits your needs and works best for you. Regarding file formats (file types) you will receive a final package of files containing: EPS (the editable design file) and PDF (versions with and without bleeds & registration marks*).

 

We will also provide you with your new brochure design in both CMYK and RGB colour formatting so that you can produce your new brochure via print, as well as distribute it on the web!

 

* bleeds and registration marks are added on this version of your brochure design file specifically for the use of the print-shop. This file is used only when printing your brochure.

 

Additionally, if you need or would like any other specific formats outputted we can happily get any formats desired outputted and included in your final package free of charge.

Do you provide printing services for my new brochure?

Unfortunately, we do not offer printing services here at Little Dragon Media. However, we do work with some great print-houses here in Toronto and would be happy to suggest some for you that do an excellent job and who charge a reasonable fee.

 

Additionally, if you live outside of the city and need help in selecting a print-shop around you, we will go that extra mile and will gladly help with sending you some great suggestions of quality print-shops/print-options in your area!

There are so many brochure design agencies in Toronto! How do I choose the right one?

We feel your pain! We totally understand that there are a lot of options in this city and that you might be struggling to choose the right one to design a brochure for your business. The reality is that it depends on many things, such as reputation/reviews, price, previous work examples and how comfortable you felt with them on the phone. You also want to make sure you hire a local Torontonian company and not a company that "pretends" to be here but outsources all their services offshore.

 

You want to be able to speak to the designers working on your brochure design directly and not have to deal with communication or time zone issues. Check the agency's reviews and ratings online from its previous clients too. It never hurts to speak to a few different companies before making a decision. We at Little Dragon Media are totally transparent when it comes to our physical location, and you can find our prices, reviews and examples of our work on our website as well. Nothing is hidden! We're confident about our abilities and are one of the rare companies that have a 100% satisfaction or money back policy.
